Sleeping through night


My 9 week old has slept through the night twice this week - I know this is very early to be sleeping through so am not expecting it every night last night she woke at her usual time of 4 but only took 1oz so I'm wondering if I should've maybe settled her back off instead of offering milk
Thoughts please

There's no harm in trying. It likely won't last, but I would get her back to sleep the quickest and easiest way possible, whether that's offering milk or not. Mine STTN a few times around 9 weeks as well. But then things went back to normal and she didn't again until 13 months (about twice), but never regularly before 3.5 years. I would make the most of it and do whatever works and gets you both back to sleep quicker.

I won't think she's sleeping through just yet then as anything could happen!
She woke once around 4 but put lullaby on & back off till 6.45 so didn't need milk

I however didn't sleep between 3.30 - 5.30 thinking she wake for milk & listening to her little noises!

Enjoy it! My lo did the same and then 2 weeks ago starting fussing again lots through the night. Hope your baby sticks at it though!

However I'm not feeding still as I don't think he's hungry and is just unsettled and a bit windy. He has reflux so overfeeding never ends well for him. I think trust your instinct about whether they're hungry or just looking for some comfort.

I'm formula feeding. Is your lo still fussing or sleeping through now?

Starts fussing around 3-4am and needs dummy popping in a few times and then wakes for the day between 6 and 6.30 ish

Emma was sleeping through pretty consistently at that age, I would have fed her if she woke but she is breastfed so it is easier to feed at night I would guess. Enjoy it! Emma started waking again at 5 months and she's never slept through since and feeds 4-5 times a night.
