    One year and a few months, and then I slept peacefully!
    Until the eighth or ninth month they get up in the middle for feeds but after ten months when they are on solids the sleep through the whole night and wake up in the early hours for a feed, after a year and a half it is cool!!

    I have six children, and they were all different when it came to sleeping through the night!

    I would have to say the average was between 8 months - 1 year old for us.

    My son never gave me a night's sleep until he was two years old.  I am still recovering.  I actually wrote a hub about it:  My Teenage son is in his Bedroom Sleeping.

    My daughter started sleeping throughout the night when she was 17 or eighteen months old. This means, she fell asleep around 9 and woke up around 5 or 6. She would wake up once around 1 or 2, but that happened maybe once a week.

    This is so individual and depends on so many things - child's character, co-sleeping or not, the period of breastfeeding, and so on.

    She started around 3 months. It was right when I went back to work for a few months.

    With my first son, it was about 8 months.  With my second son, he is getting almost there and he is 10.5 months old.  Every child acts differently, and the sleeping situations for my kids (alone for the first, share a room with my second) change things a little bit.

    My son started sleeping through the night at one month old...about gave me a heart attack the first time I woke up in my own bed and it was daylight out. Now I know that at that young I should have made him wake up to eat a couple of times, but it doesn't seem to have harmed him any to have just let him sleep. Baby number two is on the way, so we'll see how my luck holds then tongue.

    My baby has slept through every night since she was a month old.  She has never woken during the night since, even when teething. She sleeps 13 or 14 hours straight.  I am lucky!
