Long sleep stretch

LO just slept from 8 till 3 for the first time ever. This is by far his longest stretch...

But... He woke up screaming until he had a boob in his mouth. Did this happen for anyone else with the first long stretch and does it get better. My little guy was so upset..

Re: Long sleep stretch

  • My LO pretty much wakes up like this all the time! She is not a happy girl when she wakes up, and is not patient at all when it comes to waiting for food. Luckily I wake up at the first squeak from her, so I usually catch her before she hits an all-out wail. Should be interesting when we transition to the crib though.

  • I usually pick him up at first peep but there was no warning lol. Poor little guy, lol.

  • Little Snuffles does this no matter what time of day. She gives a 5 second hunger warning and then screams until the food is in her mouth. 

    A little bit of crying is probably worth a 7 hour sleep stretch though!

    My LO cries after a long stretch every time. But it is nice to have that long stretch so I can't complain.

  • The first few longish stretches, we had the same experience! Now I think she has gotten a bit more trusting that the boob is coming, but she still will wail if she has any doubts... Or god forbid I try to change her diaper before feeding her!

  • Yep, I have about 30 seconds of him rooting around and grunting in his sleep until he wakes up and it is an all out meltdown scream for food!

  • Not so much for night sleep but for day sleep. Lately she'll go down for 20 minutes and wake up screaming bloody murder.

  • I'm in the same boat of no matter how long it's been, he screams until he's eating. He starts out with little cries, but by time I get him unswaddled and change his diaper quick, he's wailing, even though it only takes two minutes. Usually he gives us a good 5-6 hr stretch lately, last night it was 8.5! Yes I was shocked.

    Yesterday we were driving home from a family picnic, he was passed out, and woke up about halfway home screaming so hard that I started crying because it was breaking my heart, had to pull off the highway and BF him in the car. It was just barely coming up on 3 hrs, and we were 15 min away from home lol.

  • Ha, my LO wakes up like that a majority of the time. He is not a happy waker! I feel bad when we have to change him first, but otherwise he would fall back asleep in his dirty diaper.

    Waking up from a nap in the car on a long car ride is the worst! Especially when the next exit is several miles away.
  • My LO did this before he was sleeping long stretches. I was confused bc the hunger cues should be him turning his head from side to side and looking for boob. But now at 11 weeks he wakes up and has more of a whimper that will eventually get louder.

  • My LO just recently started sleeping from 9 to 4. During the day he usually doesn't cry for food as I feed him about every 2 and a half hours. When he wakes up at 4:00 he definitely has a hysterical I'm hungry cry. Sometimes I want to change him before feeding him and it's impossible.
  • My guy always wakes up screaming, but he's a pretty good sleeper. He also has reflux.
