How old was your baby when they started sleeping through the night? My nine week old is no where near sleeping through the night, she's up every two or three hours. I go back to work soon and I'm terrified of what kind of toll the sleepless nights will take on my job performance. My friends have been telling me to give Aubrey formula before bed because it fills their stomach and allows them to sleep longer. But I'm really enjoying exclusively breastfeeding.
* I should specify that I'm just looking for insight to your child's age when sleeping through the night started, I fully intend to go to work as I don't have the means to be a SAHM. I've gotten enough bashing for being a working mom in other groups on CM.
EDIT: Thank you all for the perspective. I never thought I'd get so many responses! I should add that the real motivation behind this post was a woman I met at my obgyn's office a few days ago. I was there with my daughter as was she. She bragged about how her baby sleeps so well and is generally a happier baby since they switched to formula. She made me feel like I was wrong for continuing to breastfeed because my baby has stomach issues that (to quote this woman) "would probably be solved by switching to sensitive stomach formula". I figured that Aubrey's sleep pattern was entirely normal but since everyone close to me uses formula, I wanted some breastfeeding mom input. THANKS LADIES!!
