I am so sick of people asking me if Toby is a "good sleeper" and if he's "sleeping through the night yet?" It's beginning to really get me down. At the minute we still have those nights where he wakes every hour or cluster feeds the whole night long, but they are becoming less frequent and on the whole he goes 2-3 hourly between feeds during the night. I can't help but wonder though- is this as good as it gets? Or can i expect slightly longer stretches in time? I feel lucky that breastfeeding has been going pretty well so far but that still doesn't necessarily mean it's easy and particularly when folks seem to randomly expect that since your baby is now 5 weeks old he/she must be napping the night away and letting you get some shut eye when in reality Toby spends more time on my boob or being burped during the night than he does in his co-sleeper And ironically when i am burping him all i can think is "come on baby boy, lets go to sleep" then the minute he is down and asleep i feel wide awake and just want to spend the night staring at him! So...sleep! How much is everyone with newborns getting and what can we expect later on? And does everyone else get asked the same thing re: "sleeping through" because it really does my tree in!
