how long is it recommended for a baby who is two months old to sleep at night.? He will be 3 months old in 20 more days. I nurse my son around 10pm and put him to bed by 11pm. I would set my alarm for either 4 or 5 hours. Mostly he does not wake up by himself, and that's around 4am when 5 hours went by I would wake him up to nurse. Then he will go back to bed by 4:30am for another 3 hours if I am lucky. Sometimes he will wake up before those 3 hours after I had nursed him, and I've only gotten like 2 or less more hours of sleep. Should I not set my alarm anymore and just wait until he wakes up even if its past the 5 hours? He would take naps in his swing, or little jumper throughout the day for 2 or so hours. I have tried swaddling him for a nap in his crib during the day and he would wake up in 30 minutes after I put him down. He is going to be 11 weeks next week and is about 10 to 11lbs. I feel that I only nurse him 7 times a day.
