I was very lucky to have two kids who both slept 12 hours a night from one month on, with hour-long naps in the morning and afternoon. When they were 15 months, they went to one nap in the early afternoon.

At 6 months, all of mine were sleeping from 8 pm - 7 am, and napping from 9 am - 11 am, 2 pm - 4:30 pm. Even now, my non-teens sleep at least 9 hours a night (more on weekends). My kids need their sleep.

My first born was a boy. I was lucky if he slept 9 hours a night when he was 6 months old. He definitely did not sleep through the night. In retrospect, I probably should have been putting hime to sleep at 10 pm or later. Even as a newborn, he didn't like to sleep. He went to daycare at 6 weeks and slept for 45 minutes the first day! He did not sleep without waking up at a ridiculous hour until he was 4. Other moms I've talked to have reported the same thing with their boys. My dd was sleeping 11-12 hours a night straight through by 2 months.

DS is now 17. I "think" he goes to bed around 2 a.m. Luckily, he doesn't have to leave for school until 8:20 a.m. On the weekends we're lucky if he's up by noon. His father was a night owl as well. He didn't like to get moving until 4 pm on the weekends. But dh also had a job where he had to be at work and in surgery at 7:30 a.m. and he did quite well with that. So, with ds, as long as he gets up for school, I'm fine.

Thanks for the input. This schedule is working for us, so I'm not sure why I was worried about it. I guess the pediatrician just made me feel like he wasn't getting enough rest. He has slept through the night since 3 months and still does. My 8 year old daughters go to bed at 9pm and are up at 7 for school, so maybe DS likes his 2 hours of mommy time before he's ready for sleep.
