Zoe sleeps from about 11:30-5:30. She's 2 weeks old today. I feed and change her at 5:30, then she sleeps until I wake her, after I have breakfast, which is usually around 10. She then eats all throughout the day. It's getting less though, which I'm happy about. She's starting to not be a leech to my boobs. :P

Charlotte is 2.5 weeks and usually does a 6 or 7 hour stretch (from around 9.30pm - 4.30am), has a quick 5 minutes on the boob and falls asleep before she's finished, then I put her back in her crib where she usually sleeps until about 8am when she wakes for another feed. If she makes a fuss when I put her back down at 4.30am then I just keep her in bed next to me.

I make sure she never goes more than 3 hours between feeds during the day to make up for the long sleep at night.

When my LO was sleeping 5 hour stretches, he would wake after 5 hours and feed back to sleep every hour until he was fully awake. About 2 or 3 months ago, he started sleeping for longer stretches.

Oh boy, I am jealous of anyone getting a few hours sleep! Harry is just over 2 weeks and wakes every 3 or maybe 4 hours or so at night for a bottle. He takes about an hour to feed too so I am only sleeping maybe two or three hours before the next feed. He's fab though, does go back to sleep easily. He feeds a bit less often in the day and generally ignores my attempts to feed him more often. He's just small though, sure we'll get there soon enough.

Generally I am doing what I did with DD - make a strict difference between night and day. There's no chat or fun or bright light in the night, just feeding, burping, quick cuddle and down to sleep again. The more awake you can put them down the better but I do rock Harry to near sleep at this stage. In the day we play, change him mid feed to wake him, lots of light and chat and noise. This worked for my DD really fast so hoping for similar results asap!

Talking of which, he's stirring - feeding time!!

Finn started at around 3 months sleep for about 5-7 hours at night, so he'll fall asleep around 11pm, and wake up anytime from 5-7am, after a feed/nappy change/cuddle (10 to 30 minutes), he'll go back to sleep until about 9-10am. We do a morning nap (1 hour), an afternoon nap (1-2 hours) and an early evening nap (about an hour) -- if he would stay asleep after his early evening (about 6 or 7pm) nap, that would be great, but he does seem to get the amount of sleep he needs (for a 4 month old, about 13 to 15 hours, and he gets about that). Ladies with babies in months 1 to 2 -- it will get better (at least a five hour stretch will happen soon, even if it's not sttn!).

best wishes

Question for those moms who's baby has been sleeping for 5/6 hours at 8 weeks:
Did you do any "coaching" to help you baby sleep that long?

We will try to put Jack to bed at 7ish (although that doesn't always happen) and he will have a feed and nappy change at 10pm when we go to bed. He'll then sleep until around 3 or 4 if we are really lucky. We didn't do any sleep training to get him to do the long stretch, he just fell into it naturally.

He usually goes straight back to sleep after his bottle but last night took an hour :/
