    Just wondering if anyone has experience of this and thinks the lady who told me this is right? apparently babies when they are either 12lb+ or are 12 weeks old are more likely to then start to sleep through the night?

    Fin is having his 6 week check tomorrow and I reckon he'll be rocking on for 11lb8ish. The last few nights he has only woken once between 7-6 for feeding-amazing!!

My cousin didn't sleep through til he was 4 YEARS old! X

    Nope, Jack's never slept through and is 7 months old and weighs 16lb 1oz! I just think all babies are different, some babies sleep through early and some don't :) x

    My Oh didn't sleep through the night until he was 5 (Jack's a better sleeper thank goodness) and the morning he slept through his Mum actually woke him up because she thought he was dead!! x

    Depends on the baby I guess, I have been lucky so far with Jacob, he was 13lbs 2oz on his last weigh in but that was just over 3 weeks ago, will get him weighed again next week but he has been sleeping through since 9 weeks, he seemed to change after his first lot of injections. I wasn't so lucky with my last 3 though.

    Thanks for all your replies ladies....thought it might be one of those things people say and for a handful of babies it might actually be the case but more coincidence than anything else maybe?
