Darion is starting to sleep through the night now. (Sleep for 5 hours or more at night) .. It started on Friday night where he slept for a little over 5 hours. We thought that it was just a fluke but he did the same Saturday night and last night he slept for 6 hours. DH and I both said that we feel like we have actually slept for the first time since he was born.

He wasn't doing poorly in the magic blanket but it was off and on and he stopped liking his hands/arms to be swaddled and it just didn't work the same with his arms and hands out.

He is ALMOST 3 months now. Its crazy. Anyone else's LO starting to sleep long periods at night?

That's awesome! What a nice treat it is when they start sleeping longer!

We're not quite there yet, but it's getting better. She'll usually have a 4 or 4.5 hour stretch, and then maybe some 2 - 3 hour stretches. I'll take it, though, for now!

4-5 hour stretch the first time then 2-3 hour stretches after that. I've been fine though since our wake up time is very limited. Open eyes, latch, back asleep within 5 minutes tops.

Brennan sleeps 7-9 hours a night, then a bottle, and then another 4 hours or so. I can't complain!

He usually gives us a 4 hours stretch, then 2 hour stretches after that. But last night it was every 2 hours.. not fun. I think he is ina growth spurt because he slept the ENTIRE day yesterday. I pretty much woke him up to nurse, then out he'd go again.

Nope, totally not yet. We've had a couple of 4 or 4.5 hour first stretches, but when they start at 7:30, it's not like I'm getting a ton of sleep since I dont go to bed until at least 9:30. I got one night this weekend where she was exhausted and slept 6.5 hours, so she CAN do longer stretches. Of course my idiot son usually chooses those nights to get up and wake us up- shoot me. Normally Ingrid's 3 hours almost on the nose from when she gets put down to when she's squawking again.

Soon enough I suppose... but man, do I miss stretches of sleep.

^ I know...I wish I could get in bed when Anna does and take advantage of her longest stretch of sleep. Unfortunately I just can't get in bed at 7:00 lol.

I'd say that we've been at the 5-hour mark for 3-4 weeks. Over the last 2 weeks, he has consistently done 6 hours, and several times 7-8. Oddly enough, I'm finding myself less rested since then.

I am very grateful for his sleep habits. After 5 kids, I've had the range of terrible, excellent, and just okay sleepers. So, don't hate me too much!!

Henry will sleep 5-6 hours at the start of sleep. He goes down between 8 and 10. After that its every 3 hours or so
