Posted by   + Show Post

Holding himself up and sleeping through the night! I'm so excited to be able to get a full nights sleep again and I'm so proud of my strong little man!

No. I'm not breastfeeding.

Quoting Anonymous:

Babies that young should not be sleeping through the night.. Terra an increased risk of SIDS when they sleep that long..
Are you breastfeeding?
Cause... That's no good at all if your breastfeeding.. It can really hurt your supply

All my babies held their head up from birth.. I've never heard that was a problem.


Quoting atyou:

Watch the muscle tone. Holding the head up too early isn't *always* a good thing.





Yay for sleep!

How big was he at birth? My youngest was almost 10 pounds and at about 5 weeks was sleeping 6 hours at night. Sooooo nice.

My DD was the same way. Holding her head up and sleeping through the night by 6 weeks. At 2 months she started rolling over and we had to start strapping her in a bouncy seat at night to keep her on her back shile sleeping. She had to sleep in that till almost 8 months.

He's been trying to hold his head up since he was born. He held it up on his own off my shoulder for about 3 seconds while we were still at the hospital. The nurse had eyes the size of golfballs and said "Holy crap, he's going to be a sports star somewhere along the line" Lol

Torticollis. Common in preemies. Also called high muscle tone.

BOTH my children slept through the night, at a very early age. My first was 7 days old when he slept through the whole night, my second was 21-22 days old. BOTH of mh children are healthy! My oldest just turned 3 and my youngest just turned 1

He was 7.8 at a month old he was 8.2 which, is way better than what his sister was. She wasn't even a preemie and she had the biggest issues EVER with her weight.
