My dear daughter is 11 weeks now and she sleep through the night since last weeks. This is exactly what I long for since gave birth to her, a good sleep w/o being disturb by baby demand. But I start to feel worry that she may feel hungry and eventually not gaining weight so these few days I wake up again at need-nite to "wake her up for a force feed". Sound like I'm a bit but not only sleep through w/o milk for more than 6hours at night, she can even skip for more than 3 hours day time. She is still in total breast milk. Should I just wake her in 3 hours interval for feed or let her eat on demand?
Hee, if my dear son never hit his target amount in the day, I will also sleepfeed him when he is asleep. Put them back to sleep after that, will not affect their sleep. But I burp him first or if lazy put him sleep on his tummy but do remember to watch them if sleep on tummy.
DO NOT WAKE HER UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's great that your baby can sleep through the night! It means her body's circadian rhythms have kicked in. If you keep waking her up at night for "force feeds", she may eventually get used to it and end up NOT sleeping through the night.
dont't worry, she will definitely continue gaining weight. I wish my dear daughter would sleep through the night!!! She is 2 months' plus and no sign of it yet...
i also feel no need to wake her.. my girl light sleeper.. if i wake her up to drink she sure become wide awake. anyway i agree that once they get used to feeding at night then they might not sleep through the night so soon again. at least till they are older. enjoy your fortune to have a girl who sleep through so early. your girl is not taking solid at 11 weeks i suppose?
im sleep training my girl these few days! she is 7.5mths old n still wakes 2 times at night to feed despite taking solid which im not very please with lol. so i dont give her milk at night n apprently, she isnt hungry since she dosent cry! i would say... give her milk in the day as long as you want. not she wants. make her drink as much as possible. my girl dosent ask for milk in the day at all! she only ask for milk before her nap but i always give her before she naps, when she fusses, and when she wakes from nap. anyway she will take them.. n i cluster feed her in the evening around 6.30pm, 8.30pm, 9.30pm(her bedtime) cos i dont plan to give her milk at night so just fill her up before her sleep... you can try giving her every hours before her bed in the evening. that way, once you feel you r feeding her alot in the day i suppose you wont worry bout her milk intake at night
my boy slept thru the night since he was around 3weeks old. onli occasional growth spurt he'll wake up to ask for milk.
it's normal. as long as your baby drinks more in the day
i try to feed at closer intervals in the evening so that he'll be nice and full when it's bedtime
3 weeks?!!! envy.. was he on formula or breastfeeding?
3 weeks is amazing! I'm so envious too...
