    Default 2 months 12HRS sleep and no Feed?

    So My 2 month old is on formula (wont go into it).
    He Feeds every 3 hours during the day from 7am - 7pm, having a large 200ml bottle. He is only satisifed with this amount. At the end of the day he has had 5 bottles.

    Recently he has been sleeping through from 7pm-7am. I thought it was a bit odd, but I was happy. I spoke to my hubby this morning about it, and he said he wakes up grunting at around 4/5ish and he cant wake me up... he says its not crying, and he isnt distressed, he usually stops within 20-30 minutes.

    Is this wrong? He seems happy at 7am when he wakes up, and will happily wait for me to change him and make the bottle. He has enough formula during the day. He is also a larger baby, like a 3 month old.

    Sounds fine to me, the waking early morning is fine sounds like he is putting himself back to sleep. As long as he is happy, putting on weight and lots of wet nappies you are doing great, babies change all the time, just go with it...and enjoy, my 5 month old wakes hourly, what I would give for 1 of your nights (but I know its not forever).

    DS did this at the same age.
    He was just getting comfy and putting himself back to sleep

    DD was sleeping 10-12 hours overnight from 6 weeks old and she's now a happy, healthy 2yo. If he needs you when he wakes, he'll let you know. Well, DD did (and does) anyway!

    Apparently they have their lightest sleep between four and five in the morning so I guess the grunting you hear is exactly that. Don't worry and just enjoy your sleep because most of us aren't getting that!
