    I was always told by pros and other people, dont wake a sleeping baby. Period. My son use to sleep for a good 12 hours and not wake. However that wasnt for weeks on end, maybe a couple of days. I know formula stays in the belly longer.

    Every baby is different so you can not compare what your baby did to someone elses. Also I always go by the rule do not wake a sleeping baby they will wake up when they are hungry and will not let themselves starve also how do you know how much mls of formula they baby is getting maybe it likes to drink for mls less often as I have heard of babies doing that.

    They are not wrong and I'm a bit surprised you would call someone with a new bub and tell them that??

    I have an 11 week old and for the last week he has had a feed at 6pmish and then not again until 6am. He is FF and has 5 bottles a day.

    He is in the 50th %ile for weight gain.

    My DS also doesn't really sleep in the day. Every baby is different.

    thats interesting. i was told in hospital when i had dd that she was not meant to sleep longer than 6 hours and had to often wake her up because the middys kept telling me too. they said when leaving the hospy that babies should not go longger than 8 hours and to wake them for feeds if they sleep longer. weird.

    Nope sorry op but my ds (first child) was exactly like the cousins baby. From 3 weeks he slept through. He slept 6hours at a time during the day and then would feed for 40mins and practically back to sleep. By 3 months he was staying awake more but still didn't feed as often as others but was a big baby and very content and bottle fed at this stage. He was ever bit of healthy and happy.

    If a baby is hungry they aren't going to sleep. Only content babies sleep.

    Never wake a sleeping baby.
    The only time that I have been told to wake a sleeping baby was for my newborn DD2 who was jaundiced, so I had to wake her up to feed her to ensure she is feeding and flushing out the jaundice. Other reasons would be for underweight babies. But for an otherwise healthy baby, there is no need to wake them to feed them.
