My 2 month old has been sleeping 6 hour stretches for about a week now...Is that to long? Should I wake him every three hours?

If he's doing it on his own, let it be.  Don't worry, he'll probably change that up on you. ;)

Enjoy it while it lasts! Sleeping patterns change many times in the first years. Soon, you'll be complaining that he's nursing constantly through the night during a growth spurt or teething.

Enjoy it. My 2 month old sleeps 90min-3hr stretches and the last few days decided 4am is a good time to start the day.

He will go to sleep around 7-8 pm and sleep six hours and then be up every hour

As long as his diaper count is good (6 in 24 hours, poopy counts as 2), all is well. He will likely wake more often as he gets into the next growth spurt at around three months.

Nope. But do you have a goat to sacrifice to the Gods of Sleep? Publishing now means he'll never do it again. **grin**

Always, if dipes are good you're good. Smash your clocks.
