  • All my kids woke me up all night. My newborn gets me up every 2 hours or less. Its normal and will change before you know it. But sucks till the do start sleeping my advice is to sleep when they sleep if thats possible!

  • 3 times a night. This was between 9pm and 9am. At 6 weeks at dropped to 1 and that was at 430am (he slept 9-430, so he basically slept thru the night), and then he would go right back to bed until 9. As he got older he moved it to 530, and then 630 and the finally just quit waking and slept 9pm to 9am around 6 months.

  • I cosleep and I don't count. Ignorance really is bliss in this case :) I've learned to do things in a sleep fog just like when I used to sleep walk to the bathroom at night ;)

  • My oldest son woke every 1 1/2 hours like clockwork. I was very stupid then. I didn't breast feed. I got up and made a bottle every time. With the others, I co slept and nursed. That was much easier! Live and learn!

  • That was so long ago now I can't remember. I think it was once every couple of hours or so.
