Never wake a sleeping baby. My first slept 12 hours at night from 5 weeks and had 2-3 naps through the day also.
As previously mentioned, a happy and content baby won't sleep that long.
DD slept from 6-6 from 3 weeks, perfectly fine :-) they will wake when they are hungry :-)
As PP said never wake a sleeping baby
My ds slept right through from birth. The midwives at the hospital would come and wake me in the middle of the night and demand i feed him. He was never interested in a feed so we both were woken for no reason.
I think some babies are just like that
Sent from my GT-I9100 using BubHub
We were told to wake DD every 4 hours for a feed in the first week or 2 because she was jaundiced. And to help my milk supply.
At about 9 weeks (and by then she was fully FF fed) she slept through the night every night, but was getting 4 full bottles a day (instead of the 5 bottles recommended on the formula tin). It didn't worry me though as she's just never been a big eater and she loves her sleep.
I think at 8 weeks it's fine to sleep for long stretches.
My DD1 slept 12 hours a night from two weeks old.
DD2 still doesn't sleep at 10 months.
Be happy for them.
How rude to ring them and tell them what they should be doing with their baby. Do you feel better now that youvhave put a bit of self doubt in a new parents mind???
From 8 wks my dd slept 10-11 hrs night and would have 3-4 hour sleeps during the day ... She was alert when awake, had wet nappies and gained weight. If someone had of made a point of ringing me to have a go I would have told them to f*** off and to lose my number.
You need to ring back and apologise.
Get off your high horses... OP further explained the situation and she clearly did not patronize them etc.
You may owe OP an apology
I reckon ppl should not brag about their newborn sleeping patterns on FB anyway. Quite insensitive to all other parents struggling through nights... Plus it's not as if they were responsible for this, just the luck of the draw.
smartiecat. ok first off did you read my last reply.... if not please do. i did NOT afcuse them of doing the wrong thing. I did NOT tell them what to do with their baby. and for the record i DID appologise to my brother and he said that i did nothing wrong. i was genuinly concerned so i said to himwhat i was told and SUGGESTED that maybe he should talk to the doc about it.
thanks for your reply, i really appreciate and value it (sarcasm noted?) you dont need to be rude btw, you can reply in a nice manner and get what you want to say across WITHOUT offending anyone!
