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!

Lol and where did you learn this gem of information?

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

sleeping thru the night is considered 5 hrs in 1 stretch. DD started doiing that at 5 wks old...man what wonderfulness that was...the sun shone brighter i do believe


I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.

He's sleeping from 9 at night until 5 in the morning. He slept through the night on Monday and I thought perhaps it was a fluke, but he did the same again last night, so I'm thinking it's no longer a fluke.

I just wrote a paper on SIDS and breastfeeding. Babies that are breastfed tend to wake up more often than formula fed babies, which studies have shown could be the reason breastfed babies are at a lower rick for SIDS. Therefore, I could see how babies that sleep all night are at a higher risk for SIDS.

However, I don't think it would hurt your supply any.

Probalby the same place another anon learned that ALL women apparently produce more breast milk between 1 and 4 in the morning...that's one I've never heard of before.

Really? Mine was sleeping through the night when he came home from the hospital. He's 5 now and still loves to sleep.

I was adopted at 3 months and was less than 8 pounds. My mom says it FOREVER to get me to sleep through the night. My DD took forever to sleep through the night as well, so I've been preparing for like 7 months of not sleeping through the night. Needless to say, I've been happy the past two days lol.
