    Thanks for the advice all. Conflicting advice, but still appreciated

    He ended up stirring so I fed him not long after I put him down. He is having plenty of dirty/wet nappies and gaining LOTS of weight, so we must be doing something right.

    I have a breast pump so if it happens again I might use that to ease some of the pressure.

    This! Oh how I love the way newborns sleep! What a shame it doesn't last! (well, I'm sure there are some that keep it up, but not my kids)

    Agree with this too. You may also find he cluster feeds in the arvo to make up for that long stretch? If your feeding on demand during the day, let him sleep when he wants to. He'll let you know if he's hungry. (as long as he doesn't have jaundice or any health issues)

    I wouldn't wake him. He could be having a growth spurt, he could be needing the sleep.. He will defiantly wake when he is hungry!

    DS started sleeping through from about 2 weeks old. I never woke him for a feed. Saying that though just do whatever works for you

    IMO only wake if jaundiced or if underweight/dehydrated. do express so that your supply stays.

    enjoy the sleep.

    Eeek, I was told by all 3 mch nurses not to let your newborn go for more than 5 hours without a feed. Even if he is still sleeping, you can pick him up and he will suck. 10 hrs is way too long between feeds for such a small little bubba.

    I wish I had listened to my gut when my bubby was little!
    she was alert, strong and content but I was constantly told to wake her 3 hourly for a feed (because she slept 7 + hrs) at night from the min she was born.

    My gut told me to let her sleep but I didn't and it caused me lots of stress when I should have been enjoying my bub ...
