  • You are lucky! My daughter slept a lot too and my doctor said "Never wake a sleeping baby! They will wake up when they are hungry!" My only recomendation is to change him if he is poopy or if he gets soaked. But other than that enjoy it!!! :)

  • no its fine. my little guy just turned 3 months on the 21st, he goes down around 8 or 9 wakes between 6 and 9 to eat than back to sleep for another 2 hours. every baby is diff so just love the fact that he sleeps through the night already and get your sleep while you can.

  • My son started doing that around 3 months and he still does it (at 11 months). It's normal and makes us lucky!

  • You are very lucky! My daughter was 8 months old the first time she slept 6 solid hours

  • It's perfectly fine. All 4 of mine slept that much by 3 months - get some sleep!

  • My youngest started sleeping through the night the day she turned 3 months (she also learned to roll back to front to back that morning, lol--busy day for her I guess). It was nice. Not as nice as my middle daughter sleeping 8-9 hours a night at 5 weeks.
