My little boy Kolton usually goes down about 8-9:30 at the latest and sleeps till 5 then he'll eat and go right back down and doesn't wake up till about 8 sometimes he'll sleep till 10. It's kinda nice having a good night sleep again.

We usually start getting him ready for bed between 8-8:30. Last two weeks or so he's asleep by 9pm. For the past few nights he'll get up at midnight and again between 3-4am. He's been cutting teeth so we give him a cold teething ring when he wakes and if that doesn't work we give him a small bottle of formula (usually 4 oz.) That usually does the trick and he goes back to sleep.

Emmaleigh usually falls asleep around 8 pm and sleeps until 7-8 am. She's done this since she was 3 months old and we moved her from the bassinet in our room to her crib in her own room.

to Leigh Hughes: If you get your daughter to go to sleep a half hour early every few days (til she gets to 7:30 pm), instead of sleeping on and off from 10:30pm to 12:00 noon, she'll sleep on and off from 7:30pm to 9:00am.

Otto is just about 4 and a half months old. He goes to bed between 8:30-9:30 and sleeps until around 3:00. He goes back to bed at about 3:30-3:45 and sleeps until about 6:30. After that I am lucky if I can con an hour nap out of him. Not much of a sleeper.

My baby is just like Shannon's. So now I get it, breastfed babies do not sleep through the night! Mine goes down to sleep around 9:30 and then wakes up around 1 or 2 am, and from that on every hour or so, until 7 am. Then he has naps every 1 and a half hours during the daytime for anything from half an hour to 1.5 hours, feeding in between those naps.

My baby used to go to sleep at 7 and then wake up at 11 and 2/3. But I found that he didn't finish his bottles at those times... last night we had him up untill 9 and he slept right through to 4am! then had a bottle and slept till 7:15am! I was very skeptical when I read how late you all were putting your babies down to sleep but it looks like it works! Will try again tonight and see:)

Tashia Lean, I had a big baby too...my first son was 9lbs 8oz. when he was 3 months old (15lbs) his doc said to "give that baby some real food before he starves to death". So he started eating solids at 3 months...and he's 14YO now and trust me...hasnt quit eating...he's is now 6ft 229lbs!
But even my 4 month old normal size (7lbs at birth) baby girl was eating cereal at one month and solids now (per Dr orders).

My 4 mo old daughter goes to bed at 8pm...and is cranky if she is not in bed at 8pm. She has slept thru the night since she was 3 wks old with a rare occasion of getting up early (usually when she goes to bed too early). She used to get up at 6:30 to eat then back to bed til 9 but lately she has been sleeping til about 8am so I go ahead and get her up for the day (by then I have gotten my older children off to school). She only takes small naps during the day but recently started taking one longer nap.

Taine goes down btween 8-9pm at nights and usually sleeps thru til 4am for a feed and back down til 7am. Sometimes he will wake around 2am but goes back down - he's teething so it bothers him.

I start my son's bedtime at 8pm. We put on jammies and have a cereal bottle. My son is a big boy. 9.4 at birth so by the time he was almost 2 months old the formula wasnt enough. Since he started on cereal he sleeps from about 8:30pm till between 7:30 and 8am. Now that his belly is full he sleeps all nite. And yes I did get the ok from the Doc :)

It does depend on the last bottle, if that gets thrown off throughout the day who knows what time we will make it to bed :/

We're lucky I guess, our Katie is 16 weeks old and since about 6 weeks has slept through the night. She goes down usually between 7:30 and 8:30, no later than 9pm and wakes anywhere from 6am to 9am. I hear that this will slowly shift to an earlier bed time, but we will see. She's a great sleeper, some mornings if she wakes at 6am, she'll talk to her toys then fall back asleep for another hour until getting up for a change and food. She enteretains us lots!

My daughter is now 4 months and she goes to bed around 9-9:30. She doesn't wake up until 7:30 sometimes later. She started this routine when she was 3 weeks old. It started in spells where she would sleep through the night but then it would go back to she would wake up in the middle of the night. Now it's straight through.

Hi, my lil man normally crashes out about 8pm. When I go to bed at about 10.30, I dream feed him and he will quite happily sleep till 7.30am - 8am. This would be a good sleep in if my other son didn't wake up at 6.30 LOL

that's exactly what my little one does, my mom suggested that maybe he's hungry and I should up his formula? He drinks 175ml every 4 hours.

i just have to say i am extremely jealous of all you moms that have babies sleeping through the night! My son is 12 weeks, and he goes down anywhere from 8-10:30 (we try getting him to bed at 8, but he will fight it sometimes) then he's up at 1 or 2 then up again at 5/6 then up for the day at 8......I wish he would sleep through the night more...he did once from 10:30-5:30 and I was thrilled, but he hasn't done it since

My daughter is 14 weeks today and she (for the first time) slept from 8pm till 4:40am last night and then didn't wake again from 5am till 8am. My boobs were really full and leaking but she nearly slept through. Tonight she is still disturbing at 10pm. I'm not hard and fast as to when she is to go to bed but she 'asks' for her sleep suit on at 5pm and then cram feeding starts about 7pm and she is happy and full and thats when she goes to bed. Some nights she has three feeds other nights she has one, mainly it is two but I just think that sometimes I wake (before children) once or twice for a pee sometimes three times and I think it is the same thing. some mornings i wake hungry others not. Personally I don;t think it matters what time she goes to bed or how many times she wakes up
