how to make my 4.5 months sleep 12 hours at night without waking up?

Although it's recommended children get an average of 12 hours. That's not going to be the case for all children. Some will get 12 hours but not all in one hit they may sleep 8 hours over night and have an afternoon nap or something. If you keep track of her sleeping times I think you'll find your baby is getting close to that anyway. I wouldn't compare your child to others anyway every child is different. I really wouldn't worry to much. But I would suggest try get a routine so hopefully as your child gets older it wont be so hard. 6 hours is really good for a baby 4-5 months. By then any food she has had would have been well and truly digested and she will be looking for more. If your baby gets more that's fine too as long as he/she is eating well and everything. Don't worry too much about what other mothers do. Just do what ever works for you and bubs :)

When people refer to their babies sleeping through the night, generally speaking the usual time frame is 5 hours. 5 Hours for a baby is considered sleeping through the night according to the sleep specialist I saw. It's not until they are much older can you expect them to go longer periods.
