Holly is now 7wks and 2days old - She was so tired last night after not sleeping too well in the day and had a bottle at 7pm and then whinged till 10 before finally dropping off......... She woke at 2am but by the time id made her bottle she had fallen asleep again so I gently woke her and fed her anyway - She is still asleep now at 9am.......... I know it sounds good but at her age should she really go this long between feeds? She normally wakes up around every 4 hours - I want to be happy shes slept through the night so well but im more worried in case shes poorly, her head doesnt feel hot and she looks fine though xx Anyone else had a 7wk old able to sleep so long without something major being wrong? xx
She drinks plenty in the day normally but ive never had her sleep so long at night - Although she has been sleeping nearly all day and awake a lot at night so hopefully ill get some play time today Thank you hun, your little girl is beautiful Lucky arent we xx
My little one will be 7wks on thurs, yesterday she fed more than usual and last night I fed her at midnight and she slept till half 8 this morn! She usually takes 4or 5oz in 5/6 bottles in any 24hr period.
I think as long as ur LO is gaining well its fine - they could be just having a growth spurt & needing more sleep.
My HV last week said its fine to leave her sleep in the night as long as she's drinking well during the day! LO is on the 50th centile
Last night my 10 week old went down at 8. Then woke at 12, 1.30, 3, 4 & we got up at 5. I think I hate you
Seriously though, as long as she's eating well and usually wakes for feeds when she's hungr I'd let her sleep. She's gonna start sleeping longer and longer at some point - here's hoping its the start of lovely long sleeps for you :-)
We just let LO lead really, she slept through at 8 weeks so would go down at 7, we would wake her for a feed at 10 and then she sleeps till 7. They won't sleep through unless they are ready. HV said to me, offer them a bit extra during the day when they drop the night feed but it's only this week that she has wanted any more. She is 11 weeks old and usually has a total of about 33 oz in the 24 hours, although she doesn't always finish it so possibly more like 30oz. Enjoy your happy sleeping baby! xxx
Awwww lil im sorry lol - Bless you, hope your LO twigs on quick that night time is for sleeping - Hey Ill probably get a good sleeper now and in 6 months she will be a nightmare Thanks everyone, shes up, had 4oz and an hour on the play mat and back to sleep - She must take after her mum......... lazy girl xx
My little one regulary slept straight through from the day she was born and then at around 8 weeks has slept 11pm - 8-9am.
Let her get her snoozes in
What my HV told me was to not let her go more than 4 hours sleeping in the day so that she sleeps better at night .... some people don't agree with waking a baby at all but I would get her after 4 hours change her nappy which would wake her and then feed her and I think this helped in getting her to sleep through every night.
