MY BABY IS ONLY TWO MONTHS OLD. IM BREAST FEEDING HIM. THE LAST TIME I BREAST FEED HIM IS AT 10PM THEN HE FALLS ASLEEP AND DOESNT WAKE UP FOR ANOTHER FEEDING BETWEEN 4AM ANT 6AM. IS THIS OK OR SHOULD I WAKE HIM UP EARLIER SO HE CAN EAT?

  • As long as he's growing and gaining weight properly than it's fine.

  • it is perfectly fine! i was a very lucky person, my daughter was sleeping 10 hours a night by the time she was 2 weeks old and i was freeking out too! but its totally fine! just watch the weight gain. also, the way you can tell if hes not getting enough food is based on being dehydrated and lethargic. dont mistake sleeping through the night for being lethargic. if hes not wakin up at all, all day and night to eat anything, then you have a problem. but feel blessed that your getting the sleep you deserve! he is perfectly healthy

  • Let him sleep. The only time that you need to wake a sleeping baby is if they aren't gaining weight properly. Ours was sleeping 6-10 hours at night when she was that little and now 12 hours at night. Feel very blessed. Some kids don't sleep through the night until they are close to 3.
