    are you a deep sleeper? If your LO's not in the same room as you and your a deep sleeper, its quite easy to sleep through, i do it sometimes :)

    I have slept through Phoebe crying twice since we brought her home, my OH has had to wake me up to tell me. I think it is due to exhaustion but I did feel terrible for not hearing her.

    sorry no advice from me
    it happened to me as well
    2 weeks ago i think LO woke up at around 3am and i slept through until 5:30am when he woke up again for feeding. He usually feeds every few hours and that time he went 6-7 hours without food. How bad did i feel ?.....
    i felt so bad because i had the baby monitor next to my ears, but mil went into his room and put him back to sleep

    Don't feel bad, you're definitely not a bad mum, it just sounds like you're knackered. Do you think your mum would take over the night feeds for one night, just so you can recover a little? xx

    i have done that so i know how terrible it can make you feel, it sounds like you are exhausted - try getting sleep during the day when baby is napping to recover some energy and if that doesn't help go and see your doctor as things like low iron can make you feel even more tired and can be treated effectively

    Me and my OH have both done that a couple times. It was mostly when Aiden was under 6 months old. It was just exhaustion. We also live with my mom and step-dad, so on night like that my mom would wake us up or give Aiden his bottle. After the first night he slept through, there hasn't really been a problem (although he doesn't sleep through very regularly).

    Another thing I found that happened to me was if Aiden was laying in his swing or bouncer chair and I knew he was still awake when I fell asleep, I wouldn't wake up. So I always had to make sure I was awake when he was.

    Oh, and our son sleeps in our room right next to the bed in his crib, and we were still having problems.

    It doesn't make you a bad mom, hun. As you can see, you're not the only one this has happened to. I hope you get some much deserved rest soon. :hugs:
