I don't think there's anything you can do as such Dora it's just something they do themselves. I really don't think there's a knack to it, it's just some babies sleep through from an early age and some don't. I tried desperately to get James to take more during the day so he'd go through but it never worked. Suddenly, one morning we woke up with the alarm and realised he hadn't woken for a feed. Fingers crossed it happens for you soon.
ETA Just re read your feeding schedule. What about doing a dream feed? We've always done this so it doesn't necessarily help them sleep through but she may sleep for a longer stretch.
I'm not really sure if I done anything to get my 2 to sleep through but they both did fairly early - I know Ryan was around 7 weeks because it coincided with a holiday and I was worried it'd knock his schedule out. With him I didn't get up straight away when he stirred, and I popped a dummy in before I went and got his bottle ready - if he settled I didn't bother with the bottle until he woke up again, then i'd do the same again. It took me a while to get my head round leaving him in the same nappy all night mind you
I read through my birth thread the other day and I had posted that he'd gone 6 hours through the night (a day or 2 after getting out of hospital) and from what I remember that became the norm, and gradually increased - maybe I was just lucky and he was always going to be a good sleeper no matter what I done?

I've only just noticed this thread Dora, sorry i didnt post yesterday.
Now i haven't read all the other replies but i got Lu sleeping through from 10 wks using the Gina Ford routine. Basically it makes sure that they get all their feeds between teh hours of 7am and 7pm thus filling them up enough for them to sleep through the night. I did do a dreamfeed at 10:30pm every night until she was 9ish months when she stopped having it herself, but i never counted that as her waking up for it during the night because i was already up so it wasn't distrubing my sleep and she didn't very often wake up for it!!
Lucy was always a good sleeper tbh, from about 4 wks she would do 8 hours straight just at the wrong time, she'd go down at 1am and sleep til 9am which meant i got a good chunk of sleep but it was just that late night.
I see from your other thread that you did a dream feed last night and had a good night with Amy so fingers crossed this is the begining for you.
Emma didn't sleep through until nearly 7months old, and we had to sort of do controlled crying - it was also down to getting more food in her during the day, but that was because she was a bit older.
Hungry baby milk might be worth a try.
Dan never taught himself sadly and I had to do CC with him a few times from 5 mths onwards. It did work each time but then something like a move/holiday/illness would set him back.
