  • every 1-2 hours. Then after the 3 month growth spurt every 3-4, occasionally 5 (so roughly once or twice in an 8 hour period). At 8 1/2 months its the same for a change and a feed.

  • My baby is 3 weeks old and wakes up once during the night. So far I've been blessed with a sleeper.

  • My daughter (6 months) would sleep 4-5 hours, sometimes more in the first few weeks. The first night we brought her home, she slept for 6 hours! Now she wakes up every 3 hours.

  • For the first month I woke him up every 3 hrs. We had weight issues and I was afraid to let him go to long. After his 1 month check up I started to let him wake on his own and he woke twice a night. Now at 3 months he will sleep 9-11 hrs. He usually has his last bottle around 6:30pm- bed by 7 and then up for feeding around 5 am, and up for the day at 7am. Sometimes he will skip the 5am and sleep till 6:30-7am.

  • Every 3 - 4 hours for the first couple nights, then he started sleeping 5-6 at night for a few weeks. He was sleeping 8 plus hours by 2 months.
