  • Yes, it sounds normal. Although I've never waken a baby to feed. Mine at that age would go about 4 hours between feedings, sometimes.

  • It sounds fine but stop waking her up! She will wake up if she's hungry.

    She's fine.

  • I had the same problem with my younger daughter... her doctor said that it's ok to jump over a meal but... not 2 meals. Anyway she used to sleep around 6 hours and then wake up and eat.

  • Have her thyroid checked? What kind of insanity is that?

  • Why would you wake her up? Let her sleep and she'll tell you when she's hungry.
