Could 2-month-olds sleep all night?

October 25, 2010

Scientists say, what may take longer however, is for the baby's eight hours of sleep to conform to the family's sleep schedule.

For instance, researchers found by 2 months of age, many infants were likely to be sleeping straight through from midnight to 5 a.m.

From 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., which is ideal for many people, infants are most likely to begin sleeping during this time at three months, with over 50 percent doing so at 5 months.

The study in the journal Pediatrics also acknowledges many infants still won't meet these milestones even at 1 year of age.
