When does my baby sleep at night? This question has every young parent ever said.Almost all babies can sleep through 6 months at night, but when they do this different from one child. Some 3 month babies can sleep for six to eight hours already. Other children only do this when they are 12 months old.
Most babies (70 percent) sleep all night by the age of 9 months, according to the American National Sleep Foundation. Sleeping at night means sleeping on a bed for 8 to 12 hours without interruption for a nightly diet.
And just like in adults, it’s perfectly normal for a child to wake up occasionally, stretch a few times a night or breathe deeply. But you can help your baby learn to fall asleep again.
Bring your baby sleepy but wake up to bed by the time he or she is 4 months old. This prevents dependence on you as a parent to fall asleep and teaches your baby to fall back asleep.
You may have heard that bigger babies and babies eat better food, but that’s not true. The ability of your baby to sleep by sleeping through the night is not dependent on size or diet.
