So I've been blessed with a 7 weeker who likes to sleep 7 hour stretches at night...but my LC told me that I should wake LO at the 5 hour mark to feed or I'll run into supply issues. My mum is very adamant that I shouldnt wake a sleeping baby and that I should just enjoy the routine that LO has put himself into...and I do have to admit I hate waking LO when he looks so peaceful, and I would love to be able to sleep for 7 hours straight at night...
Does everyone here wake up there LO's at night to feed at the 5 hour mark? Has anyone let their LO sleep the night and not had any issues with supply?
My daughter sleep 7.5 hours from day two.... I never woke her for a feed and nobody ever told me to.
She was 8lb1oz and thrived.
...but that was 13years ago so the ruling may be different now.... I must say that I my little one (5weeks) was sleeping like that too I wouldn't wake him because his weight is great and he is also a thriving baby...
So I suppose it depends on babies weight??
LUCKY YOU THOUGH!!! I need a good nights sleep!!
