My little girl is bottle fed and I feed her last bottle about 9pm or 10pm. She will sleep until about 7am or 8am.
I was told by my ped that baby's that have a lot of baby weight on them will usually sleep longer because they have more body fat to burn off. My little girl is in the 60th % and eats anywhere from 6 to 9 oz. She's 4 months old today.
My son was in the 5th % in body weight and did not sleep throughout the night until he was about 4 months old...

Around 4 times - only 1-3 hours between breastfeeds. Having said that, they're usually short feeds and straight back to sleep, no nappy changes, no lights, no messing. It doesn't bother me too much - yet...

my little girl has her last feed between 7 and 7.30 and then goes in her cot and straight to sleep. She then normally sleeps til between 6.30 and 8. Occasionally she will wake in the night but i just go in put her dummy in give her a kiss and walk away. She will then go back to sleep. Sometimes i think they can get into a habbit of waking up and having a bottle even tho they do not need it.

i put him to bed at around 10pm that is when he passes out after a feeding then i go to bed at around midnight then i feed him i think maybe 3-4 times at night: i am breastfeeding so i just turn and give him the breast and he drinks without waking i even fall asleep in the process ; we do this all night but since neither him nor i really wake up it is no real problem then he wakes up at 9am

Nikolas was weaned off night feedings around 13-14 weeks of age. He went from 2 bottles during the night to just one bottle and for about 4 weeks now he no longer gets a bottle at night. His last bottle is between 8:15-8:45pm and then I put him down. He usually wiggles a bit and may fuss around 3-4am, but he always gets himself back to sleep within 20 minutes give or take. He is up for the day at approx 6:30am and his 1st bottle is at 7am sharp.

Aiden is almost 4 months old. We feed him a bottle at 8pm then he naps in his rocker downstairs. We go to bed at 10-10.30pm, change him and give him a little feed then he goes in his Moses basket. He sleeps through to anywhere between 7am and 10am. He used to have a lot more milk on his last feed but this is slowly being cut down but we were lucky and he was in this rountine from 2 weeks old.

My son goes to bed anywhere from 8-10pm and usually only wakes up once to nurse around 2:30-5:30am. He just recently slept through the entire night without a feed!! but then went back to his regular pattern. I'm exclusively breastfeeding and during the day he eats every 3 hours.

She goes to bed around 9 or 9:30 and then either sleeps through the night (if swaddled well) or just once around 3-4am (if arms get out of swaddle)

My son has got a tight feeding schedule: At 7 in the morning he gets 200 at 12 / 4 and 8 o clock he gets150 cc and at 12 we have to wake him for his last bottle of 200 cc. He hardly ever wakes up before 7 o clock in the morning. Took me about a week to get him used to the schedule. ( he's 4 months now)

My son has not been having night feeds since he was probably 21/2 - 3months old...he is 4 months old now. Even then it wasn't really a night feed he would just wake us up at 7...I am still up at 12am so we give him his last feeding then, and he sleeps right through the night until 9-10am...

My LO is 16 weeks and still feeds around the clock. At least 4 or 5 times during the night. She's a big girl lol.

[deleted account]

Most nights, twice a night. To bed at 7pm and either wakes at 10pm then 3am or 12am and 5am. We're starting on solids next week so it will be interesting to see if this changes.

My Hayden doesn't go down till 10 but between 10pm and say 7 she's still up at least 3 times if not 4...:(

I nurse my LO around 7:30 or 8 and put her down right after, then go in and nurse her again around 11PM. She doesn't really wake up for that feeding, just enough to nurse and then she's down until around 7 or 7:30AM. Much better sleeper than my son was at this age.

I feed her around 10 pm and then again around 3am. Then not until 7 in the morning. I don't know if that is average or not, or if she just likes to wake up and hang out at 3am!

Joey eats between7pm and 8pm then falls asleep by 9 and does not wake up until 7 or 8 am for another bottle. He eats every 3-4 hours during the day and takes a nap around 10am for about an hour then another nap around 1 or 2pm for 2-3 hours. He is just now 3 months old and has been on this schedule for 1 month now. He made this schedule him self and I love it. I am so blessed.

My son is 15 wks, and he only eats once a night. He usually sleeps from 8pm to 4am. Im breastfeeding him,so I try to get him to eat on both sides, so he sleeps well. Sometimes he will eat around 12am, but most of the time he only wakes up for his binky or a clean diaper.

I am breast feeding exclusively and I normally feed Hunter around 630pm, and he is in bed by 7pm and sleeps until 8:00am the next morning. He hasn't woke up in the middle of the night since he was 7 weeks old! I am very blessed to have such a great sleeper!

I feed her 1 or two times per night... more often once in the middle of the night (sometime between 9:30 and 6am) and then she'll eat again around 5:30 or 6am when I thinking about getting up.

Our 14 week old son has finally started sleeping through the night! He goes to bed around 10 or 11pm and sleeps until about 8 am. Up until last week he was eating almost every hour through the night and there wasn't a lot of sleeping going on in the house!

Jacob goes to bed around 9 after a feed then wakes up every 3- 3 1/2 hours to eat all night long. we never did the whole wake him up to feed like we did with our daughter because it took us 1 1/2 years to break her of waking up eating every 2 hours. But for some reason my kiddo's love to wake up and not sleep throughout the whole night. any idea's on how to get him to sleep through the whole night?

Hayden (who is 4 months old today) nurses at 8 or 9 and then sleeps until around 3:30-twice last week she didn't wake up until 5:00 to eat, which it would make me very happy if that were to continue, lol. Then she goes back to sleep and wakes up between 6 and 8, depending on whether she ate at 3:30 or 5:00.

[deleted account]

My son takes a bath by 7:30 and nurses before 8 and falls asleep. Then he wakes between 1-2, nurses & falls back asleep. Wakes between 4-5, I change him & nurse & he falls back asleep until 9 or 10.

My little girl (Faith) is now 15 weeks old, I'm exclusively breastfeeding and she feeds at 6pm ish then sleeps from 7pm to somewhere between 4am and 5am goes back to sleep, then wakes up again about 7.30am ish. She does feed every 2 hours in the day to stock up! We're very lucky that she loves her sleep so much. But the long gap at night has meant I have had mastitis and have to be careful with engorgement overnight. Can't moan though she's perfect! They're all so different with feeding, if she wakes in the night I feed her, despite the health visitor telling me I shouldn't cos she'll never learn! She's a baby for goodness sake!

I put my son to bed at 9 and he wakes up around 12am, 3am and then up at 6am for an hour or two then goes back to sleep till around 10. I look forward to him sleeping through the night someday. ;) I don't mind the nighttime feedings because I love spending time with him.

Charlie goes to bed after a feed at 7pm sleeps till between 2am-3am and then back down till between 7am-8am this was the case up until two days ago as he has one of his molars trying to cut (already at only 14wks) and this has caused him to wake an extra time between midnight-1am I am hoping this will stop VERY soon. I am solely breastfeeding and intend to keep this up for as long as he needs/wants milk then when he is aloud cows milk I will stop, it is tiring but I enjoy it and know its very good for him.

She goes to bed at 7:30 and usually wakes up 2-3 for a feeding then 4-5 for another. Some times she wakes up 3 or 4 times depending, I guess on how much she ate during the day. Remember they have growth spurts at 3 months so they may eat more some days and less other times.
