    So Aria has been asleep since 8.30pm. She normally goes down about this time but wakes religiously for a feed at 6am. She hasnt done this so its now going on 12 hours since she last fed.

    I am reluctant to wake her as she rarely sleeps more than 30 mins during the day...but obviously if I need to I will.

    So...should i wake her now or leave her and follow her cue?

    Wow, that is impressive! Could you do a dreamfeed or would that just wake her up completely?

    My lo is similar- 8.30 to 8.30 with a wake up at 5.30 usually but every now and again he goes longer to 7 - I wouldn't wake - his body his getting used to sleeping through the night! He'll wake when he's hungry for me!

    No way would I wake them. I would dream to have a baby that did this. At 9 months they've once slept 9 hours, but other than that lucky to get 3 hours
