How often do they get up in the middle of the night to nurse? DS fooled me into thinking he was going to do some long stretches without nursing for a couple nights (4-5 hrs), but now he's back to his usual 3 hrs between sessions, day or night.
BFP#1:MC 8/20/2010| BFP#2:MC 7/9/2011| BFP#3:DD
NoeliaV:We get about 5hrs in the first sleep period and then, usually, 3 in the second.
Cellis:Wow, I'm jealous of all of you. DS eats every 2 to 3 hours. He will usually go 3 hours for the first stretch, then 2 or 1 hour for the rest of the night. I don't even remember what sleep was really like. He likes to wake up for the day anywhere around 5 to 6am.
This is me except after the first stretch I'm lucky to get an hour. I've been getting up around 2:30 am and for all intents and purposes I'm up for the day but too tired to be productive.

My first was like that - very, very rarely slept more than 3 hours at a time.
This new little guy is a sleep champion. He sleeps 7pm-2am regularly. Eats at 2 and then sleeps until 6 when we all get up (toddler never sleeps past 6).
ObLaDi:My 7 week old nurses every 1 to 2 hrs during the day and every 2 to 3 at night. I'm going back to work in a week; yikes!
This sounds exactly like my DD! I think we've screwed up something in the beginning here by having her sleep in our arms and never alone. It's ok, because she'll only be this little for a short time and I'm gonna miss it when she's sleeping alone!
blowfish11:We EBF. She nurses around 99:30, then goes to sleep for the night. Usually wakes up around 8 in the morning. Occasionally, she will wake up at 4am when DH gets up for work. But most of the time sleeps from 108. We are really lucky that she sleep so well, but I certainly don't expect it to last forever. We're enjoying it while we can :
