Hi all,
Just a quick hello!
First time mum to a 8 week old boy. Joining mumsnet as I'm constantly googling symptoms / problems / advice as I'm sure al new mums do!
Reassuring to see that everyone goes through similar problems and to get some fab advice when you are sleep deprived.
Think we are currently going through a "leap" - I have a very clingy baby who does not want to sleep!

Appreciate the cuddles while you can smile
Soon enough they'll be sleeping through and you'll miss them.
P.s. I know its easy for me to say because I no longer have an 8 week old and am no longer sleep deprived but trust me, you'll wonder where those night cuddles went one day xx

Thanks for the advice!
He just went 5 1/2 hrs for the first time and even I was up wondering when he was going to wake up!!!!!
They can't win! smile

5 1/5 hours?! That's amazing! Mine is 6 weeks old and I'd kill for that much sleep, I'm lucky to get 2 hours confused

First time ever though - most likely a fluke...... Most I have had before this is 4 hours in a single stretch - am gobsmacked!!!

Hi mummysetra I have a 9 week old so very similar age! She tricked me into thinking I might start to get more sleep though! Did 4/5/6h sleep over 3 separate nights and was amazing last 2 nights back to feeding every 3h! So tired again!
