Just wondering how many 11month olds exclusively breastfed (no formula) are sleeping through the night?

my 14 month old still does not sleep all the way through the night. A good night is when she only wakes once. My 3 year old started sleeping all night when she was 17 months old. Both were exclusively breastfed until almost 6 months when I started them on solids. Neither ever got formula.

My daughter started sleeping through at 10.5 months, 9pm-6am. We purposefully night weaned at that time. She wasnt getting formula but was eating table food 2-3x a day and then nursing 5-6x a day.

My exclusively BF baby slept through at 6 months,just before starting solids. On occasion she will wake but generally puts herself back to slepp within a minute or so. She is 10 months now.

My daughter slept through the night at 11 months old as long as she wasn't teething or sick. By 11 months old she was no longer getting any formula, she had gotten it previously once a day since I worked full time. But by 11 months I was able to exclusively pump enough for her and offer solids while I was at work, when I was home I always fed on demand.

My first daughter was ebf (+ solids) and she didn't sleep through the night until after she was a year old. Although I'm assuming you mean sleeping all of her night without waking. Oftentimes "sleeping through the night" when talking about babies only means about 6 hours in one stretch. I have a 9 month old now who is ebf with solids and she sleeps 4 hour stretches most nights, occasionally a 5 hour stretch and once or twice she's slept 8 hours.
