    I have a 2 week old who feeds every 2-3 hours and most nights I sit on the couch with her as its the only way I can get her back to sleep after a feed without screaming.

    She's lucky she is cute :-)

    But honestly like the others have said the fact your bub sleeps for 4 hours is awesome and I'm a little jealous!!

    Don't believe everything you read and don't listen to everything other people tell you!! Give your bub some time to figure things out and you'll get into a routine soon enough.. Don't rush it just enjoy your time with bub :-)

    I think your routine is fab for such a little bubba! Its similar to what my dd did as a newborn. I was happy to follow her lead.

    Keep doing what your doing and one night when she's a bit bigger she'll hopefully sleep through to 5am then 6am etc.

    Your doing great already! Enjoy the night cuddles, the newborn stage goes so quick and you'll soon be running around after a 2year old

    I wish my DD had been like that at 2 weeks old, sometimes I was lucky to get 2 hours at a time!

    Don't worry about bad habits yet.

    Is this your first baby? I know how frustrating it is and how desperate you can get for your newborn to sleep. I hate to say it, but that's normal. I was up every 1.5-2 hours with DS.
    You're doing the right thing. Feeding bub in the dark, with little interaction and keeping it very quiet is great. Bub is a little young now but she'll eventually learn that it's sleep time and it'll help her distinguish night from day.
    There's not much else you can do at this stage.. Sorry

    You are doing a wonderful job with the routine you've got happening. It sounds very similar to what we did with our DS at that age. We kept night feeds super boring, we used a dark towel covering the lamp and minimal chatting/interaction. DS slept through the night from 6 weeks old, he is now 3.5yo now and is a great little sleeper. Keep doing what you're doing, it will happen

    Society screws with us alright... There's no such thing as sleeping through the night at such a young age as others have said and if it does happen its extremely rare... My DS woke every 2 hours for about 6 months and now at 17 months still wakes up 2-3 times a night..

    Just condition your mind that u will just go with the flow and if u do this it won't matter if you have to wake up through the night. Your body will adjust and you will be able to handle it. the human body has an amazing ability to cope with changes...

    Enjoy ur precious blessing..
