I'm guessing it's just a phase, dd has slept 7hrs night before last and 6 1/2 last night! It sure has felt good to get more than 3hr stretches! I also think she is teething, I can even feel a bump in her gums (and she has started drooling and trying to chew on me when she is done nursing).
Last night my 7day old ds didnt wake up for 6 hours, so i woke him up to nurse and he only nursed for 5mins and went back to sleep for 4hours. Idk if its normal but with 2 under 2 im taking it even if it only happens rarely lol
"Sleeps like a baby" is the worl'd biggest lie, and has nothing to do with feeding. **grin** Waking is expected no matter what the feeding method; it's actually a survival technique, to avoid SIDS. And babies are really really good at the survival game.
Is it not normal for a breastfed baby to sleep through the night?
