I know this has been addressed before, but I just wanted to ask in regards to my daughter's age...
She's 24 days old today. Each night she has a block of time sleeping that lasts 5 hours or so. Two nights ago, she slept 6 hours 45 minutes. When I woke up and looked at the clock, I nearly freaked out because she had gone over 7 hours without feeding.
At this age, now that my milk seems to be in and the supply is good (I believe it's good anyway), should I be as concerned about her lengthy sleep sessions? Should I set an alarm to go off after a certain amount of time so that we don't go so long between feedings?
She feeds about 8-9 times a day and unless she's cluster feeding, which has only happened a few times, she rarely feeds more than that per day.
I just want to make sure nothing jeopardizes my milk supply - i.e. sleeping too long between feedings. Also, I just want to mention that it is incredibly difficult to wake her for feedings if I feel she goes too long during the day.
