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

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! 😊

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.
