My LO has always been an extreme sleeper (not really a good thing in our case) but the Dr didn't want me letting her go more than 6 hrs between feeds until she was 11 pounds - so there must be something behind that!
Luckily, she hit that right before I went back to work at 12 weeks. I am fine getting up when she wakes up but I hated getting up to my alarm!
I've heard this too! My friend who has a three month old told me this snd said she read it in What to Expect the First Year...
Hope it's true! Was true for her!
CCM82909:I sure wish it was true, or at least it isn't in our case. DS is a little over 12 lbs and still wakes every 1.5-2 hours at night to eat and eats every 2 hours during the day as well. I have heard that sleeping gets better once they reach 6 weeks though.
Wow, is your baby under 6 weeks and over 12 pounds? My kid is 10 weeks and only about 11 pounds! He's a little guy though.
Lesh4537:I never heard of that or how true it is. My son was 11lbs 3oz at his one month check. About that time he started sleeping 4-6hr stretch at night. Right now his sleeping routine is 5hrs (10pm-3am), nurse, sleep 4hrs (3:30-7:30am), nurse, sleep about another hour or so and then up for awhile. He was born 8lbs 2oz and left the hospital at 7lbs 4oz -- we were slow with breastfeeding. His average growth rate has been 1lb and 1/2inch a week.
Lesh, my son weighed at his 2 month aapt what yours did at his 1 month!
My son was 11 Ibs at his 1 month check up too, which shocked me because he isnt a big baby, I guess hes just heavy lol. But sadly he will only sleep 1-2 hours at a time :( youre so lucky lol
My baby is two months today and is round 11lbs I believe (was 10.6lbs before 8 weeks and that was over a week ago)
What I find frustrating is all of a sudden she's sleeping in much smaller stretches during the day now. Went from like one and a half hour to like 20-25 minutes. With maybe 6 hours straight during the night.
SusanC111:LO was at 9 lbs at his 1 month and my pedi said at 1012 lbs he would start sleeping longer. Can't wait!
