    Cas (2 months) has started sleeping... 6pm-6am. The past two night has done this. The nights before that he woke at 1am for about 10 minutes, drank his milk then went straight back off til 6/7am. Is this safe? Should I be waking him?

    Oliver sleeps from about 7pm/8pm til 8am/9am most mornings and he has done this for probably the past 3 weeks or so. I think the general rule is so long as they are getting enough during the day they will wake when they are hungry but if your LO is sleeping through he must be getting enough milk during the day. I might be wrong but thats as I see it with Oliver.

    Unless there are issues of slow weight gain or weight loss, my personal opinion is NEVER wake a sleeping baby!

    Babies need sleep, for two months they've woken if hungry so there's no reason to think they'd stop now.

    Let them sleep and be grateful you have a lo who wants to sleep. Also make the most of it as our lo slept soundly 7-7 from 7wks then about 8wks ago she started waking and wants to play for two hrs between 1.30 and 3.30am.

    My little boy used to sleep through at that age and I used to wake him to feed him, but others thought I was mad and, tbh, if we had another who slept that well I'd probably leave him and assume he'd wake when hungry. It's really up to you, but check with your health visitor if you're worried (although I suspect they'd all give different advice on it too... x

    :haha: thanks guys, will check it's okay with HV but let him sleep as much as he wants til then, he seems his usual bright eyed bushy self and is a right chub, so I know weight gain isn't a problem. No doubt next week it'll be up every few hours again :haha:

    from 8 weeks Jacob has gone 12 hours (not even waking once!) and the HV said not to worry just enjoy it!

    for the past 3 mornings he has even gone till 9!

    Guess we just have to enjoy it while we can as when they start teething it may be a whole different story!

    Thinking back, I'm pretty sure my eldest was the same, from around about 2 months sleeping at least 8 hours at a time during the night. He had the exact same routine as Cas, bath at 6, bottle and bed. Seems to be working!

    If he's eating well, gaining weight, and is otherwise alert and healthy, let him sleep.
