  • Yes. And don't expect a repeat since you broadcast it. **grin**

  • Is the baby sick or dehydrated? My daughter didnt sleep that much when she was 6 weeks old, but maybe your child sleeps through the night? I think you should wake him/her up once in the night for a feeding and a change at least though.

  • It's normal! My baby has been doing it for the past few weeks! She is on a schedule already! She does down between 7:30 and 8:30 pm. doesn't awake until 5-6 am.! She's a great baby! This is how my first was too! Hopefully yours keeps it up!! :)

  • gottalovemal...you're not a Firefly fan, by chance? The name just caught my eye.

    Good thought on hydration. If the baby is wetting 6-8 dipes, no need to wake, though.

  • Yes, it is normal for some babies, isn't it wonderful! My third, who is 2 1/2 months now has been sleeping 8 hours since she was 4 weeks old. She now sometimes does 10. Except she eats last at 11pm and sleeps until around 8 or so. I wish she would teach her older brothers how to do it! My 21 month old still wakes up 2 or 3 times a night.

  • Yes. Some babies sleep through the night from day one. Whereas others wake up every 1-2 hours. It all depends on the baby.
