Just for curiosity sake because I know every baby is different... When did your baby first sleep through the night (minimum 6 hours) consistently? My girls are 3 months and they've slept 6 hours straight maybe 3 or 4 times. Not consistently though.

Babies are a different. Both my kids slept through the night since birth. 6+ hours. Some DRs say wake them, but I let them sleep. Didn't want to get them used to waking up to eat! That's bad habits for when they are older ;)

My son put himself on a schedule at 2 1/2 months old and slept minimum 12 hours a night. People like I suggest wake the baby up for feedings (I was accused of being a neglectful mother by another mother because I let my son sleep) but I'm old school and believe you should never wake a sleeping baby. If they are sleeping thy need it. 6 hours is a great start! Congratulations!

Is not consistent because babies are always changing. They can have good sleeping patterns but it doesn't mean that they will always going to be punctual that does not exists. My lo sleept through the night at 3-5 months then at 6 he was waking up every 3 hours,at 7 months once or twice and now at 10 usually sleeps a length of 9-12 hours . Who knows what would be when he's 12 months,most probably his hours will change,and is completely normal ;)

My daughter started sleeping from 10-630 at about 9 weeks. We used the book cherish the first six weeks to get her on a schedule.

My LO started around 3 months. She is 5 months now and still sleeps through the night. Our pedi said she might start waking up more now that she is teething, but so far so good (knock on wood!)

My two boys slept through the night by 3 months. My daughter slept through at around 7 weeks. Every baby is different though. I know 3 year olds who still don't sleep through the night.

My LO was 2 months and he slept 9 hours every night for about 2 weeks, even when I tried to wake him to feed him he wasn't having it, he's now 4 months and sleeps about 12 hours, and maybe will sometimes wake up once or twice to eat.
