Infants Sleeping Through the Night:

Written by Jennifer Garden. Posted in 0 to 6 Months

Most infants achieve this by 5 months. By ‘sleeping through’ this means they obtain 6 hours (or more) of sleep. Typically babies need to eat at other times during the night. There is no research to support that a baby of x weight or by 6 months should be sleeping 10 – 12 hours. The developmental goal at 5 months is 6 hours of sleep.
