I keep reading lots of information about how it's normal for babies to wake up several times per night, and I've always expected it. We have never done any kind of sleep training of any variety.
DS has been STTN for about a month now. He falls asleep at 8pm and doesn't wake up until 5 or 6. I do not expect it to continue....I'm almost looking forward to the 4 month wakeful period because I really liked my 2am cuddles (and I have never STTN in my ENTIRE LIFE, I wake up 2x per night). He sleeps in our bed or in the arm's rest most of the time, but he is totally fine with his crib too. We co-sleep because we like having him close; he could care less. He is formula fed.
So.... if it's normal for babies to wake up, is my LO "abnormal"? Should I be at all concerned that he's not getting up to eat? He's very healthy, 90th percentile for height and weight, but I've read that STTN at a young age can cause dehydration and other problems.
I know, looking a gift horse in the mouth here - I'm not complaining!! I just want to make sure I shouldn't be waking him up.
I warned you it was a dumb question.....
