Thread: Should I wake up LO to eat at 8wks?

  1. #1

    Default Should I wake up LO to eat at 8wks?

    My LO is 8 wks today (yay!!) and although I am not complaining, I am a little concerned that I allowed her to sleep so much last nite. I fed her on both sides at 10:30 before we went to bed and she has always been right on schedule so I have never set an alarm to wake her up to feed again. However, she didn't wake me up until 6 this morning!! LO is back on schedule but is it ok that she slept through a feeding??

    Let her sleep. Her sleeping habits will likely change again in the future.

    If you are having trouble with engorgement in the middle of the night, what I did was sleep w/ a sports bra under a tight nursing tank; I would also sleep on my stomach to sort of mush the girls into submission
