My LO doesn't wake for a night feed and hasn't for a while BUT (and this is a BIG but!) I count myself extremely lucky as I have seen a lot of LO's on here who still do. Tell these people to keep their opinions to themselves, you are doing just fine You are tending to your LO's needs, since when did that become a bad thing
Sounds really good to me! My LO is almost 8 months and usually wakes 1-2 times a night (just lately) but last night sttn!! Whoop! She is probably just teasing me though...Evevry baby is different but if they wake up hungry your not going to starve them are you! Everyone is so obsessed by what babies should be doing, when it would be better to stop stressing and just go with the flow. They will stop waking when it suits them, not us
My LO started sleeping through about 3 weeks ago although this hasn't been every night. I enjoy the nights she sleeps through and on the nights she wakes (maybe 1 or 2 a week) I feed her. If it works for you both then keep doing it. I also got sick of the comments about she should be sleeping through and she shouldn't be having milk during the night - don't know why it bothers other people so much
Seems ok to me, the twins go down between 7 - 8pm, usually 8 and wake any time between 6-8am, have a feed and go back to bed for an hour or two then up! They usually get 12 hours straight.
Eldest went to bed at 11pm and got up at 8am!
I just tend to go with the flow, I always put them down awake and they self settle. which works for us, I need my self, in contracts though none of my babies napped, my toddler does now but that didnt start until 8 months and my twins get the nap first thing in the morning and thats it. One of them occasionally goes down for a nap in the day but the other never does.
course its not wrong, ignore them, just do what works for you. my lo still had a 4am feed till he was nearly a year, then he'd go back to sleep till 6ish. he sleeps in our bed, but i dont care what ppl think, he sleeps better that way so we sleep better, so why not. im all for just doing whatevers easier
Why is everyone so concerned about our babies' sleeping habits? It's none of their business. Your baby's sleeping routine sounds amazing, I'm so jealous. Mine wakes up up to 4x wanting a feed.... and I feed him! I trust my child to know when he's hungry and need, I'm not going to trick him with water.
Do yourself a favor and do as I do. Whenever someone asks about his sleeping routine flat out lie and say that he sleeps through the night. You'll be a hero. If you say anything different people will come up with all kinds of advice and make you feel like you're a bad mom because your LO wakes up. Idiots.
Mine is the same as yours. I have let DH get him back to sleep by walking him around back to sleep because I am still nursing....so I knew he wasn't hungry or else he would have been screaming his head off for food. On the other hand, I have always fed him to get him back to sleep...so when he wakes I feed him back to sleep. Lately been putting him down around 6 ish and he is up around 3:30...I feed him and then he is back asleep until anywhere between 6:30 and 8:30! So although I know he isn't hungry I still feed him back to sleep...I figure he needs the comfort and eventually he will outgrow it. Don't feel bad at all!
