dog - apart from making sure the alarm is connected at all times I would let her sleep.

I might be tempted to do a 10pm feed if she needs it but she's ok on weight isn't she?

DD always needed a lot of sleep- though usually in smaller batches- she didn't start going 13/14 hours until 15mo or so...
Maybe you;d get more takers/advice with a thread on 'sleep and SIDS'?

FWIW the only example of sids I know fell asleep on her father's lap and was dead the next time he looked down at her, only 30 minutes or so sad
I don't know if there are links between sleep times and sids at all, I'm sorry.
I can understand it must be a great worry for you though Dog.

Dog - am jealous, my 4 month old was awake every hour and half last night! It sounds like a long time to sleep but babies do sometimes sleep that long - did she sleep in the day time/have lots of activity? It may be that she's goign through a growth spurt and just needed a good long sleep.

jcmd i empathise with you as i once took dc1 to doctors as everyone said he slept too much... doctor just looked at me wink

any way i have had five more babies since then and they have all been the same

dc6 is 10 months old and went to bed at 8 pm last night

he had a milk at 8.30 and is still asleep

he will probably walk 12 - 12.30

have a nap at 2-2.30

another at 5-7 then bed at 8

this is the same for all mine!

Dog- Sorry about you sister! i didn't know this!

My feelings are (everyone is going to have differing opinions!) That if she is gaining weight fine- don't wake her to feed, and i wouldn't worry about her being in a deep state of sleep, as long as you have a breathing monitor, and you are SURE the alarm would wake you.

Other than that- i'd enjoy the lovely long nights of sleep! I thought Esme was a pretty good sleeper- Isla wins hands down!!!!
