I think technically they say about 6 hours or so is considered sleeping through the night, my six month old was sleeping about 10-11 hours straight, which was nice, hopefully he'll start doing that again soon. (:

At 5-6 months my daughter slept from about 8:30pm until around 6-7am - i think sleeping through is when they sleep solidly for 6 hours or so. Occasional wakes for a feed is ok though - as in not every night but every so often. Once we had her in a cot though & in her own room she slept from 8:30pm until 7-8am & at 9 months now, she's still in the same routine.

My friend b-feeds and they co-sleep. So it's not really like either of them is waking up. I think that's kind of strange, but that's just me. My son stopped waking for a nighttime bottle at around 5 or 6 months. He learned to go back to sleep on his own instead of needing to suck himself to sleep. I figured that 8-10 hours was sleeping through the night for him. Basically enough time for me to have some quiet time after bedtime, and get a full nights sleep for myself (around 6 hours).
