How?

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

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

such prolonged sleep at that age is nothing short of a miraculous feeling. you are very fortunate oceana!


Quoting Oceana09:

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.

Quoting ripemango:

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

Mine too! I don't see how that could be a problem.

Quoting Cbreland07:

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!

Yes it is. I'm very thankful. His sister had issues breastfeeding and was very underweight at his age, so it took forever to get her to sleep through the night, so I have felt very blessed.

BOTH my daughters did at that age, I still got up to pump cause my milk production was CRAZY!!!!!  Lol Our doctor told us as long as we had their crib as safe as possible to let her sleep, she'd wake up if she were hungry. She said, if she is sleeping, its because she needs to. I checked on her when I got up to pump and again on my way back to bed. All good here. They are now 3 and 15 months and STILL sleeping through!

He's not even reading yet? He must be somewhat delayed.

same here! They had excellent eye focus from birth (like far away things as well as close up) and very strong necks. Still very healthy and strong. I dont get what the problem could be.

It's called torticollis. Also known as high muscle tone. It can require therapy. Not always the case....but something to watch for.

So, what do you suggest, you just wake them up?

And about SIDS... its sudden. You can't just heighten your risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. They can't identify (for sure) the cause of SIDS and therefore can't determine (for sure) what heightes the risk. 

And about your milk supply, freaking bottle it, if your so conscerned. Don't wake your kid up just b/c you feel like your going to explode.

The kid will wake up when it wants the milk, and when it's not tired anymore. Stop looking for trouble, take sleep when you get it. 

I can only imagine how crazy you must have been going when your kids were yoounf if you woke them up all the time.
