When do Babies Sleep Through The Night?

The answer to that question is very different depending on who you ask. My son started sleeping through the night at 6 months old. Not a peep all night from 7pm-7am. We were so happy! To this very day (he’s 7) he STILL sleeps so well every single night and has never had any issues, bedtime has always been bedtime. No battles, no fussing, no crying. On the other hand, my daughter, didn’t sleep properly through the night until he was 2 1/2. TWO and a HALF! I was exhausted, I tried everything. We have always been very routine oriented, schedule oriented, and strict with bedtime and somehow, nothing we did made any difference. The kids both were very different in their sleep habits.
