    Default Sleeping too much??

    Hi ladies!

    I am a little worry that my 3 month old is sleeping about 7-8 hrs at night. She sleeps in her bassinet right next to me. She used to wake up every 3-4 hours before. She nurses all day and seems to be gaining weight ok. But she is not nursing at night. Should i wake her up? My 2 year old boy seemed to nurse ALL night long until he was like 17 months. That is why I am a little concern that DD is sleeping too much. I am still nursing my 2 year old son. Last night I had to wake him up to nurse bc i was way too full since DD was sleeping for so long. I will appreciate any comments.

    Let her sleep, mama. Some babies do sleep through, and as long as you nurse on demand it's to follow the baby's lead. Especially at 3 months of age. It would be different if she were a newborn, but at this age I think it's really fine. And your supply will adjust after a few nights, maybe a bit longer.

    I agree with PPs...let her sleep. My DS did the same thing--started sleeping through the night at about 1 month until he was about 4 months old. Then he started waking up again--often. Enjoy it while it lasts!
