my friend had a baby 2 weeks ago and he sleeps through the night...I'm SO jealous!!!

What does she class as 'through the night'? I'll bet it's not the same as my definition smile

Anyway, doesn't this baby need feeding?

why didn't my son do that???

susia Mon 14-Jul-08 22:49:50

I don't know - my son needed feeding all the time at that age envy

I am guessing he is formulafed and/or was left to cry at ssome stage. Also, when you say sleeping through the night, to some people, this means 7-7, others might still say through the night and mean midnight till 6, which is very different

no he is breastfed and not left to cry - probably midnight to 6 but still pretty good

I'd class through the night as 12 hours...7pm till 7am. My 4 month DD used to do this but has taken to waking up twice in the night! Even if your friends baby is sleeping this long doesnt mean it'll last unfortunately!smile

DD2 was like that and then bam, at 1 month old, she started waking 3 times a night. I wouldn't get too envious!

LOVE it when they sleep through the night early on - means the parents get a Really rude awakewning later on when they are used to it and all smug.
