    Havent read the whole thread but DS is 5.5 months and still feeds about every 3 hours. He was sleeping 10pm-5am until 4 months then hit the four month sleep regression and wakes for at least an extra feed at night now. He went through a stage where he wouldn't settle well at about 2am but now even if he wakes he will got straight back to sleep after a quick feed. Unfortunately it seems once they are settled into one routine they change it all up again!

    Not sure about the pooping...maybe a growth spurt? At a similar age my ds started spacing out his poops and usually does only one big one a day (and maybe one small one). He is still exclusively bfing.

    I trust this is just a cultural language misunderstanding thing and you're not really having an underlying dig at parents that sleep their babies in a separate room?

    Sounds like your baby is hitting some major milestones. That affects their sleeping. There is also the 4 month sleep regression...

    I would just go with the flow and keep doing what you're doing. It's hard not to question everything you do, but trust me, just keep doing whatever you used to do and bub will get back to his normal pattern.
    He will sleep longer too.

    BF or formula feed babies it doesn't matter. I know BF babies who slept through from 2 weeks old and formula fed babies who were yet to sleep through at 6mo.

    Good luck it's tough but he will grow it out.

    Ie I'm from India. My kids sleep too much for Indian kids and not enough for Aussie kids. So I ignore both sets.
    It must be a French thing too!
    Yes we value our sleep a lot lol

    I think it's just how she feels? About herself? It's not about anyone else. I wouldn't read too much into it :-)

    ???? I said "I would" in reference to how I was raised/background and in reply to the post about South Asian families having their babies sleep near them. If you think I'm having a dig... Well no.
