There’s light at the end of the sleep deprived tunnel for parents of newborns. By age 3 months, and sometimes as early as 2 months, most infants are sleeping through the night, although their sleeping hours may not exactly match yours early on.
In a recent study at University of Canterbury in NZ researchers “identified 2 months as the most likely age for infants to begin sleeping through the night under both the midnight to 5 a.m. criteria (the one criterion traditionally used to describe sleeping through) and an unspecified eight-hour criteria,” By age 5 months, more than half of the 75 infants studied were sleeping the same hours as their parents, the researchers found.
As your baby grows, they’ll need fewer night feeds and be able to sleep for longer. Some babies will sleep for eight hours or longer at night. By four months, they could be spending around twice as long sleeping at night as they do during the day.
