It's me again! This time I have a question about sleeping through the night. My 11 week old son is now going 2 long 4-5 hour stretches at night between feedings. I have 2 questions about this. First, is it normal and/or safe for him to go that long between feedings at night? He's a slow gainer, so I definitely don't want him going that long if it's not healthy, but he also rarely sleeps during the day so I think he needs some solid sleep at night and would rather not wake him if it's ok.
My second question is about milk supply if I'm going that long between nursing. I feed him on demand throughout the day which is usually every 2-3 hours. However I only nurse from one side at a time due to his reflux, so at night each breast ends up going around 8 hours without being nursed with these long stretches now. I haven't noticed any supply problems yet, but would also like to prevent any from happening, so I'm not sure if it's ok to go that long? Thanks again for all your help, ladies!
