Well? Anyone sleeping through the night yet?

Ours is waking up 2-3x a night still. Nap time is absolute chaos though since she hates going to bed and will sleep for maximum of 2 hours maybe. Normally it's 10-30 minutes though and then she's up and ready for more. It's very tiring.
And she decided this morning to smack me in the face (in the nice I-don't-know-you-are-there baby way) a few times as she was up and I was trying to just go back to sleep

Logan was doing super good for a while there - was sleeping about 6 hours on the first stretch. Now for the past week or so he is waking up every 3 hours!! Plus we decided a couple days ago to try and lose the swaddle, so that's not helping. I would really love another long stretch of sleep soon.

Some nights are great and she sleeps for 4-6 hours a stretch and some nights are terrible and she cries while I pace the floors with her.

Christian doesn't nap long in the day, we will have about 4-5 15-30 mins naps maybe. But once he goes down around 9:30-10pm he sleeps until 4-5am wakes for a bottle, then sleeps until 8-9am. I'm blessed! LOL

Brady typically goes down for the night between 11pm-midnight & sleeps anywhere from 6:30-8am. A lot of times at night he'll sleep from 8 or 9pm until he gets up at 11 or midnight. He's a horrible sleeper during the day though. 20 min cat nap here & there. Annoying! He's gotten up over night the last couple nights though....growth spurt??

I totally lucked out this time around, and I can say that now that he's been doing this consistently for about a month-

He sleeps from about 10-10:30pm until 5 or 6, sometimes 7 and will usually go back to sleep for a little while if its on the earlier side (5 or 6) after I nurse him. Sometimes he will wake up in the middle of the night and fuss but I just pat his back a little (we co sleep) and he almost always goes back to sleep. It's amazing. DS1 woke up every 2-3 hours without fail for like an entire year straight. So I know I am blessed.

Naps? He is almost always good for a morning nap from about 9-11 or even 12 if he's really tired...but afternoons are spotty. Sometimes he will cat nap, sometimes nothing. He gets crankier as the afternoon wears on and is usually a bear around 5-7pm.

This is pretty much Jude. Some nights are worse than others, but this tends to be what he follows. We are lucky to get a 30-45min of naps during the day.

William goes down with us around 10. He usually sleeps 4-6 hours.
Our best nights he sleeps 10-4. Is up changed, fed, rocked and back down at 5. Sleeps 5-7. We all get up at 7 for school/work.

He still naps a ton during the day. Usually in the swing, in between the dropping and picking up of kid 1 and 2.

Arg, since Christmas it's been miserable. He keep psyching me out by falling asleep between 9:30 and 10 and then waking up 20 mins later then doing this over and over until 1 am. On our bad nights he's up at 3, 5, and 7, on the good nights we skip the 3 am waking. Hope this phase is short lived. He does have one good afternoon nap though from 2-5 pm. We're in the middle of it now :bliss:

Logan fights sleep, but he does sleep well usually. I get up for work around 8, so I've tried to get his schedule around him waking then and for the most part it's worked. I just don't lay down myself until after midnight. If acts after 2:00, he'll usually sleep until then or a bit before. I'm lucky that my biggest grrr is waking up an hour before the alarm. He will nap after waking, then little naps throughout the day in between his active times.

Lily sleeps 5-7 hours for the first stretch, gets a boob, and then another 5-7 hours. She'll nap inconsistently throughout the day. Different times, sometimes 30 minutes, sometimes an hour.

Lexi is up every 3 hours...to the minute. She did tease me at the beginning of the month by sleeping 6 hrs straight 3 times in 1 week. :/

I find it really interesting how different babies in the same age range can be with their sleep habits!

Ben gets ready for bed between 6:30-7:30, and is usually asleep by 8. DH doesn't get home until late so we eat dinner afterward, so I don't really get to sleep when he sleeps (darn!). Then he will usually sleep until at least 4 am, then get up every couple hours after that to eat. Sometimes we get up at 7 for the day, but usually after a little chit chat and baby breakfast in bed we can sleep a little longer til 8. He will nap sporadically and not for a long time during the day so I never get a lot of chores done.

Sydney usually cat naps throughout the day. Some days she will take a longer 2 hour nap but not always. At night she goes down between 8:30 and 9pm and sleeps until 6:30am or so.

Carter is kinda all over the place. He seems to be taking naps but they vary in length. For some reason he likes cat naps. His last nap is usually around 5pm so he's awake until he goes to bed then, which I think makes him cranky sometimes, but nothing a little bath doesn't help with.

At night he does well. He'll sleep from 10-10:30 until 4 or longer. He did give us 7 hours twice this week. It was amazing.... maybe not so much for my boobs but it was amazing to catch up on sleep.

Compared to my first, who was up every 2-3 hours for 16 months (when we night weaned), Dawsyn is a superstar.

She goes down by around 7:30 or 8. She always wakes up within 30-45 minutes of going down, but once I get her down that second time she will sleep 5-7 hours. Is up to nurse, and sleeps for another 3-5 hours before getting up for the day.

Napping, like many of you, is usually cat naps of about 30 minutes. Every couple days she will do one longer nap in the afternoon of about 2-3 hours.

It all depends on where he is sleeping. He was sleeping in the bouncer but after sleeping through the night consistently for a week, we moved him to the crib. In the crib, he was waking up at 3am and 6am almost on the dot every night. When he started teething he would wake up screaming and then go right back to sleep and it was waking up my four year old. I then started sleeping on the couch next to his swing downstairs and he will sleep all night again from about 9pm to 7am in there.
