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!

Hmm.. All 3 of my kids have slept through the night since birth..I've successfully breastfed them all and never had a problem with my milk supply.

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

No it just makes sense


But here is a link, but I can't make it clicky, so I copied part of it for you..

http://www.lalecheleague.org/nb/nbmayjun99p68.html

In addition, studies of near-miss infants and siblings of SIDS infants show that these babies have fewer night-waking episodes. In the first few months, infants normally have frequent periods of night-waking as they ascend from quiet sleep to active sleep and back into quiet sleep. Researchers have suggested that arousal from sleep may be essential for resumption of breathing in babies who have less effective self-starting mechanisms (Harper 1981). Difficulty with waking up may place infants at higher risk for SIDS. Infants presumed to be at high risk for SIDS also show more frequent episodes of sleep apnea and periodic breathing (Guillemmault 1981). This apnea occurs most frequently between 1:00 AM and 6:00 AM and within ten minutes of awakening. The infants who woke most often at night had fewer episodes of apnea. Active sleep guards against SIDS. Sleep studies have shown that the onset of active sleep (REM sleep) stimulates breathing and heart rate. On the basis of their studies, researchers hypothesized that active sleep “protects” human infants from SIDS. The peak risk period for SIDS coincides with the rapid decrease in active sleep between two and three months of age. By six months of age, cardiopulmonary compensatory mechanisms in quiet sleep are more mature and the risk of death (from failure of these mechanisms) is reduced (Baker and McGinty 1977).

Did you hear this from a doctor?? I have never heard such non-sense.

Oh well, I just was told by my lc that I needed to nurse at least 1 time between the hours of 1am and 4 am because that's when your body is making the most milk.

Hey, I didn't say they wouldn't be fine.. I just know there's an increased risk of SIDS

Quoting JjcH0911:

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

I wanted to. With both of my children. Both of them had serious problems latching on though. I watched my DD almost starve to death in her first week of life so (and perhaps I jumped the gun a little bit) when he started having problems latching on, like she did I panicked and said "Oh God...not again" and started formula feeding.
