concerned - my 4 week old baby is sleeping through the night!
Ok some people might think im mad about being concerned about this but my midwife told us not to let our baby go longer then 5 hours for a feed - well past 2 nights hes had a feed between 10-11pm and then sleeping through till 6-7am
im worrying that hes not good for him to go this long without a feed? should we be waking him for a feed earlier?
hes feeding really well during the day - taking 4 oz's every 2-3 hours
You only need to wake a sleepng baby if there is weight gain problems, otherwise embrace the new found ability of sleeping. Mine has never slept that long and at 7 months has never slept more than 6 hours in one go!
I was told just to enjoy it! And I have. Gaby has slept at least 12 hours from when she was 6 weeks old (she was 6 weeks early, so 0 weeks old corrected!).
As long and they still have lots of wet and dirty nappies and continue to put weight on its fine. Because Gaby was prem the midwife wanted us to be weighed every week after she slept through. But also told me, 'it won't last!' 9 months down the line and she now sleeps 14 hours (only had 3 nights in all that time that she has woken up during the night)
My LO slept 9 hours solid the first night home fromthe hospital and I felt really guilty fo rnot having woken her for a feed. But theni figured she's ok, she will let me know when she's hungry. Sleep is important too!!
She now only wakes up once a night.. so we feed about 10ish she sleep till between 3 or 4 am.. then goes back to sleep till about 9. I count myself pretty lucky with that so ur really lucky!!! Enjoy!!!
