My 2 1/2yo still wakes to nurse during the night lol. Does she NEED it no, (for food that is, comfort yes she needs it) do I care about getting her to stop? Nope lol

I think it is rare for a baby to sleep through the night esp if they have not been sleep trained at all. Not saying it NEVER happens just that it is rare.

DD generally sleeps 7-7 with one quick wake-up to nurse. Sometimes it's twice and rarely it's not at all.

For a 10 month, BF baby, I feel like that's pretty good.

By 2 weeks old, my EBF LO was sleeping 6 hours, by 4 weeks it was 9 or 10. She did this completely on her own. She was in a bassinet next to our bed which was elevated for her reflux, she was swaddled and we had the fan/air con on. (who knows if any of that played a part in her good sleep). I put her to bed when we went to bed, but made sure to feed her again - even if she was asleep. We moved her to her crib (also in our room) at about 2 months.

She was sleeping 9pm-7am consistently until about 3 weeks ago when we got a cold and then went on a trip to see my parents. She was waking almost every hour. She's 5.5 months.

Thankfully she slept through last night. I started swaddling her again - who knows if that had any effect.

My 2 month old DD just started sleeping through the night. She usually sleeps for a 6-8 hour stretch. Of course, sometimes that's from 4am to noon but still...
