    Early on, mine woke up every 3 or 4 hours or so but then every now and again they'd have a long sleep.

    Terrie's right, there's no way you'd sleep through her crying totally (although DH used to nudge me awake most times before I heard them! :lol:) . If she's crying and goes back to sleep by herself then chances are she didn't really want anything. If she needs a feed/nappy change, etc. she'll let you know!

    Is she in the room with you or her own room?

    Bethanie would wake every 2 hours or less at first.. brings back painful, zombie like memories lol. Anyways, she was also sleeping right through the night from about 2 months and I would wake up feeling very worried that something was wrong or like a bad mum lol. You realise after a while that if they really did need something, they would wake you.. believe me! (basically what Helen said). ;)

    Jamie has always been quite a good sleeper, when he was a newborn and for a few weeks after, he would only wake once during the night usually spot on 3am

    Charlie wsa a brilliant sleeper until he hit 3 months!:dohh:

    When he was Caitlin's age, he'd go 6 hours every night. I'd love 6 hours now. Last night he finally went down at 8.30pm, was awake again at 10.10pm, then 10,28pm, then 12 midnight till 2.05am, then up for good at 6.05am!:dohh:

    Make the most of it Wobbles, and like the others have said, you would have woken if she needed you.:hugs:
