For the last two nights my baby has been having her last feed at 10ish, after which she goes to sleep and we put her to bed. She then hasn't woken up again until 5:30am.
Whilst I'm happy I'm getting more sleep I'm a bit concerned that she's missing one of her night feeds. She's only 4 weeks old. I used to wake her for feeds before but she wasn't interested in eating and was grizzly when I tried to put her back down again.
She's a big girl, was 9.8lbs at birth.

10-5.30 is absolutely fine as long as she's thriving and feeding well in the day. She won't get dehydrated or anything in 7 hours.

Everything is a phase though, the sleeping through may well be temporary so enjoy it while you can.

Dd1 slept through from 9 weeks, but only ever woke once in the night before that.
Dd2 was 2.5years.

Sounds great. They change all the time with growth spurts etc so just make sure you get to sleep when you can!

Jealous mine is nearly 11 weeks and wakes up Af least three times each time taking 1 hour to 1.5 hours.

Their is no set age they should sleep through. Also you can't force a baby food they don't want.
Enjoy it!

As long as she's regained her birth weight you don't need to wake to feed. Enjoy it and long may it last. O to have a sleeper!!
