How long does/did your breastfed newborn sleep at night?

My DS is 1 week 1 day old. He is EBF except 1 oz of formula per day to mix his medicine in.
Since we got home on Sunday night, he has had the same sleep schedule!
Asleep by 12-1am, awake by 5-6am to eat, back to sleep in an hour and wakes back up by 10 or so.

Don't get me wrong lol, I am not complaining! But my first son was formula fed, and he ate every 3 hours like clockwork!
I expected ds2 to wake more often since he's EBF....He eats plenty during the day or I'd wake him up more often.

Am I just lucky, or is this normal?

 I co-sleep with my DD. She usually falls asleep around 10pm in her bouncer. I stay up and wait for DH to get home, which is around 2:30 am. When I move her from her bouncer to the bed she wakes up, so I nurse her then. She then stays asleep until 10am usually.

ETA: DD is 4 months old.

my ds was feed breast milk with a bottle, he was born with a cleft palate and couldn't nurse. but his own schedule was like that too when he was a newborn.

U don't need to give her formula.. Every baby is dif. My mom said I didn't sleep all night till I was three. :)

Co sleeping is the best!! My LO goes to bed at 12 and we wake up at nine am.. He's 2 months btw... When he was first born I never thought he would sleep so good so soon
