Mine wakes every two hours and wears sleepsuit and a small cellular blanket.

DS is 8 weeks, but wears a sleepsuit, vest and nappy and sleeps in a light grobag. He tends to cluster-feed before bed, then sleeps 3-5 hours before his first night feed and another 3 hours after that to his second one.

Both of mine at that age were in a sleepsuit and a swaddlewrap and they both went for 4-5 hour stretches. I know the advice about swaddling has changed, but they were swaddled arms only and stopped them from doing that arm-flinging wake up thing. The winter baby would have had a vest under the sleep suit as well.

My 2 week old is sleeping in a sleepsuit and a cellular blanket however we are cosleeping so I think it's warmer sleeping next to someone than on your own. Cosleeping and breastfeeding so most feeds are dozy ones and I'm not sure of exact stretches but she seems to feed 3-5 ish times a night and sleeps well in between.
