Sleeping Through The Night?

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm guessing it's just a phase, dd has slept 7hrs night before last and 6 1/2 last night!  It sure has felt good to get more than 3hr stretches!  I also think she is teething, I can even feel a bump in her gums (and she has started drooling and trying to chew on me when she is done nursing).

Last night my 7day old ds didnt wake up for 6 hours, so i woke him up to nurse and he only nursed for 5mins and went back to sleep for 4hours. Idk if its normal but with 2 under 2 im taking it even if it only happens rarely lol

"Sleeps like a baby" is the worl'd biggest lie, and has nothing to do with feeding. **grin** Waking is expected no matter what the feeding method; it's actually a survival technique, to avoid SIDS. And babies are really really good at the survival game.

Quoting DN0818:

Is it not normal for a breastfed baby to sleep through the night?

She slept from 10-5 and then from 5:45-8:45!  Holy moly, she was starving when she got up though!

 She was up every 2hrs atleast last night! I was hoping she would continue to sleep good but didn't.  I knew it was temporary!
