In the last week he's had a couple of nights of sleeping for about 7 or 8 hours on the trot. He woke up snuffling a bit so I lay him next to me for a feed but we both dropped off. He's had a bit of a cold which I suppose might make him a bit more sleepy than usual.
He was very large at birth, so maybe he has a big enough tummy for a feed to last him through the night? Should I try hassling him a bit more during the night?
I wouldnt worry my dd was sleeping from 6pm until 5am at 8 weeks, and since then has been doing 6pm-7.30am sleeps. told the hv who said I should be waking her up to feed her...BUT she is gaining weight and everything else is fine. If she is hungry she will wake up and cry, if she doesn't ehn not hungry so let sleeping babies sleep.
