Coleson slept last night from 915pm to 730am. No wake ups either!

Normally he sleeps that same but wakes up once to eat. So about 10 hours!

George doesn't usually sleep 5 hours straight at night...he usually wakes every 3.5-4 hours to eat

Unfortunately he usually skips his morning (8am-ish) bottle because he is not hungry, so I know he is capable of going longer between meals. I just have to figure out a way to shift his schedule so his long stretch is at night.

Emma goes to bed between 11-12 and wakes up around 9ish in the morning.Thats a really good stretch. I can't complain. However when she does wake up if you don't get that bottle in her mouth within 5 minutes she will scream like a "banchie."
I think because she sleeps so long she is just starved to death in the morning.
Sometimes she still does wake up once at night to feed.

I guess some babies do and some don't. Ugh. It's really exhausting. Consider yourselves super fortunate, everyone whose babies aren't waking up all hours of the night.

Not here. He was going 5-7 hour stretches and then at 3 months completely regressed. Some nights we get 3-3.5 hour stretches, but mostly it's been 1.5-2 hours. It's incredibly exhausting and thinking about babies sleeping completely through the night makes me want to cry.

Madalyn typically sleeps from about 7pm until between 4am and 6am. Then on the weekends, I can usually BF her and get her back to sleep until 730am or 830am. We are lucky. Sometimes she will wake to eat around 2am, but that's not too often.

Sending hugs to the mamas who are up at night!!

Not mine. I'm up about every 3 hours with Jamison, but he nurses and goes straight back to sleep, so it's not too terrible.

Well, I hate to see anyone else not sleeping long stretches but I know now I'm not alone. Katherine, the same thing that happened to Mikey.. regression after 3 months.

Luyando has her days. For the most part, she sleeps from 7ish until 9pm, wakes up nurses and goes back to sleep immediately; wakes up again around 12.15ism am, has her bottle of breastmilk and goes back to sleep immediately and is up at around 5.30am. So, not too bad but she could do better. She's done sleeping through the night (9pm till morning) on some occasions but not as frequently as mom would like it.

I hate to sound like I'm bragging, but I just wanted to answer the question, so don't hate me Meghan sleeps from about 8-6:30 or 7. Wakes once usually and I just put her pacifier back in. We had some rough nights transitioning from the swaddle.

Sariah goes to sleep around 9 o'clock and won't wake up again until 3 am. Then she goes right back to sleep until 7-8 am. She's pretty good about being on my schedule. She only wakes up once at night, she's improved greatly.

Marybethsmom, you don't sound like you're bragging. You're just answering the question. I jealous though!

Myfavoriteshoes, walking zombie describes me too!

I guess im kinda lucky though, baby goes right to sleep after bottle. He goes down at 8:30, wakes at 12. Wakes up again around 4, like right now. My husband has been so much better. It's just easier to do it myself. I just asked the question because I occasionally run into someone whose 3/4/5 month old is sleeping 9-7 am. I'm thinking, wth! How can we be like that!

My son slept 5 1/2 last night! A friend suggested I give him a couple more ounces of formula (he has 5, which she thought wasn't enough but he's not hungry after he finishes and pedi said that's fine) before bedtime. I don't know if it was a coincidence or a possible solution for longer stretches. We'll see.
