Hi ladies! My AJ (Aeryn Jean) sleeps 10/11 - 6 consistantly. She'd probably sleep later than 6, but that's when I get up for work and we need to start our day. Last night was the first night she slept from 11-9! And so did I. lol. She's a breast milk baby, but switches between breast and bottle depending on what time it is.

That is very good! I would consider that sleeping through the night! Devon has been doing very well also, he has been sleeping from 10pm to between 6-8am routinly everynight for the past 3 weeks! Im loving it! Its a little better now that my body has adjusted but when he first started i would be so sore in the morning from engorgment but now its alot better! :)

6 hours is considered sleeping through the night...usually from 10 pm-4 am. my little girl has been sleeping thru the night since she was 8 days old, which i have been very fortunate of. she usually sleeps from 9:30 until 6 am now....but i can't get her on a good nap schedule during the day. but at least i've got my nights!

My daughter is 2.5 months and she is sleeping abot 10-12 hours a night. sometimes she kinds wakes, i put the soother in her mouth and she is out again. my son was the same way when he was born. i would say if they sleep at least 6 hours, that would be the start to sleeping through the night.

are you guys nursing or bottle feeding?? I think that makes a BIG difference in sleeping habits. My son is nursing and he was born aug 22nd and during the night he wakes every 2-3 hrs...but when we bottle feed him breastmilk he sleeps at least 3 hrs sometimes 4.

Hi, my baby was born 8-26, he's been sleeping from 12 - 7:30 for about two or three weeks already. He found his own rhythm. Thought the day his feeding schedule is about every four hours. His last feeding is at about 10:30 pm.

i would!!!! good for you!!
My baby girl was born August 6th. She sleeps from 11-8 every night for two weeks now. i am loving it. what i found helps is the book "Baby wise" It gives a sleep/feed/wake rythm. it tells you to put you baby down to sleep one hour before feeding to ensure that when feeding time arrives your baby is wide awake to eat a good full meal. then with the combo of food and sleep they normally stay awake two hours and explore their surroudings. at night they will not be hungry and be very tired.
it has worked for me! And the good thing: mom gets sleep!!! and baby still gets enough nerishment

Oh that is funny. No I don't know how many hours it would be to considered sleeping through the night. I would guess that anything more than five hours would be sleeping through the night. Or it could be any time that is more than what they sleep in between feedings.

Um, not sure, I think he just didn't sleep that well or that much durring the day, also, I heard Aj (Aaron Jr. Its funny that you have an Aaron also!) sucking on his hand (he hasn't found his thumb yet!) after about 5 hours or so, and I woke up and put his pasifier in and I think that kept him asleep.
Do you know how many hours it takes to be considered 'sleeping through the night?'

Oh, that is awesome. Aaron normally goes any where from 5-6 hours during the night. Last night wasn't so good. He just had his 2 month shots and he was horrible. My husband didn't get him down until 1:30 this morning. What are you doing to get AJ to sleep 7 hours?
