    On my bubs first night he was on his 8th hour of sleep and the midwife woke his up and told me to feed him... He screamed for 7 hours after!!!!!! I was so mad! The second night after his 8th hour sleeping straight the midwife to me to wake him but I refused. He woke after 10 hours straight sleeping and had a big feed. He's now 3 months and has always slept through the night with no problems or weight loss. I think every baby is different though and as ling as they are still gaining weight properly never wake a sleeping baby

    You'd think by my 4th I'd know....but I just thought he was an awsome sleeping baby. Wrong! He got jaundiced and lost weight and he was too sleepy to feed properly. It got that bad that I had to use formula as he was too tired to work at the breast and I was hopeless at expressing. We had to get heel blood tests daily for a week and it was awful

    Yes. My first was jaundiced. My second would sleep for hours and hours on end if I didn't wake her. And my third I needed to do it to prevent chronic mastitis.

    Thanks for all the replies ladies it's really helpful hearing others experiences.
    @shy that's what I was a bit concerned about as he's just 3kg. But we had a visit from the midwife yesterday so we know he's not jaundice (well he is a tiny bit but nothing to be concerned about)
    He only lost 180g and milk is in with a vengeance today so he should put on weight from here.

    He hasn't had an extended sleep since we've been home, no longer than 4 hours anyway.

    I'm sure I'll be back for more advice very soon!!

    @ButterflyMa

    My Dd was small too at 2.7kg and born in distress as well. I just made sure once she had woke herself and was actually on the boob that I tried to keep her awake enough to have a big long feed. She has now gained about 1.5kgs at 6 weeks.

    I would ask your Dr how long between feeds. For babies that are not putting on weight/have medical issues they often recommend feeding every xxhrs.

    As bubs get older or dont have any medical concerns then I would let them sleep.
