From the time my son was born, he was on a 4 hour feeding schedule but sleeping was when he wanted. He learned his feeding schedule and he woke up when he got hungry. At three weeks old, he slept from midnight until almost 9 am. How? I will never know. I woke up and freaked out because it was 6:30am and still no crying. I went and checked on him and he was still breathing, I think I was scared of SIDS, terrified that I had lost my son. So when I realized he was still safe and sound, I let him sleep and that was the best sleep I'd had in months because for the last 2 months I was prego, I had insomnia. But after that he was sleeping from midnight until around 8am when he would wake up for morning bottle and I would start getting ready for work after taking care of him.
