    Default How much does/did your 6 week old sleep?

    Dd3- napped 1-3hrs during the day in carrier, pram and bassinet
    Slept 8-10hrs overnight straight then 2-4hrs after a feed.

    All exclusively breastfed.
    question: when you say exclusively BF, do you mean only boob milk or exclusively fed off the breast only? like did you ever express and offer ebm so your hubby/someone else could take over to give you a break?

    And my awesome boobs. Haha.
    This is awesome but don't compare your babies to this ladies! It's highly unusual for babies to sleep that long overnight at 6 weeks. Great if it happens but don't beat yourself up if your baby doesn't do this. Most don't, there's only so much you can do the rest is up to your baby.

    If RAH had a 'secret' she could sell it and make squillions! 😂😂

    6 hours was our record and that was 1 night and only by pure chance.

    if there was a secret for sale, I'd definitely buy it!! 😂

    Yeah I'm not going to say when ds started sleeping 10-12 hours straight a night regularly as it may scare you! 😂😮

    Waking every couple of hours overnight at 6 weeks is very normal.

    Nope. Exclusively bf from boob. My babies never leave my side/boob for first few months for more than an hour or so.

    What I didn't mention is my dd1 waking every 40min from 6-9mths. Or dd2 feeding 3hrly till 15mths. Or dd3 went thru this daft phase of staying awake for no bloody reason in the middle of the night.

    My newborns slept well. My older babies don't. But no one asked me that question. Haha.

    DS1 fed every 3-4 hours at that age he was ff. He'd nap 2-3 times a day for up to an hour.

    DS2 fed every 45 minutes to 1 hour 24/7 and did until he was almost 18 months old. I did get one stretch of 4 hours when he was 10 weeks - he was clearly messing with my head. He had 1-2 naps of 15-20 minutes during the day. He was exclusively bf. Would not take a bottle of EBM or a dummy from anyone.

    At 6 weeks what your saying is VERY normal.

    I think this was the hardest adjustment for me when I became a parent. The fact I literally can not control my babies sleep patterns! Wtf did I ever think I could? I felt so ripped off (still do) that DS1 cat napped until 5-6 months and got so overtired he was beside himself, yet fought sleep like no other. Even my MIL who raised 4 children and worked in EArly childhood was amazed at his 25 min-on-the-dot wake ups. No efforts on our behalf made any difference.

    He sorted himself out in the end. He was a sensational sleeper around 12 mths onward and still is. This time round I am not bothering to try and 'change' things, instead just working out ways of coping with whatever 'stage' DS2 is going through. It's all temporary. They will sleep longer eventually.

    Clearly a wide range of 'normal' according to all the responses! 😊

    Damn, here I was thinking you had a sensational secret to share 😂. Hope DD3 is no longer having midnight parties for you 😊

    My DD3 is 6 weeks old. She is a good sleeper can't complain. She is on formula and has been since a week and a half as my milk supply was weak. All three of my children were formula fed early because of this. They have all been great sleepers. DD3 is becoming more alert at day in her awake times, if say she has a feed at 11pm she will sleep until 3am, wake, feed and be asleep within an hour, then wake at 6-7am feed..She is waking around twice a night for a feed at this stage. I'm pretty happy with that.
