  • my son started sleeping through the night at 2 months. He would eat less frequently, but more at each sitting. As long as he's gaining weight it's fine.

  • My son is almost 4 months and sleeps 8-10 hours at night. Some days he eats constantly, other days not so much. Like the pp as long as he's gaining weight he's fine!

  • I son slept through the night very early on. I just had to be ready with a bottle the second he woke up. Remember to look for weight gain. If you continue to worry, don't be afraid to be a paranoid mom and take your child to the doctor. Congradulations on your new found sleep. :-D

  • babies are so different from day to day I've noticed. One week mine was eating 8 times a day, then the next week only 4, and the next week back up to 6. It just depends on their growth spurts and such. but like everyone else said just look for weight gain and poopy diapers.
