My son is 7 weeks old and has been a sleepy baby from birth. From the beginning, I've had to wake him up to eat. It's gotten a lot better during the day and he usually wakes himself up to eat and cluster feeds all evening long. His weight gain has been good and plenty of wet and dirty diapers. I typically feed him the last time ending around 11:30 with him falling asleep nursing. I had been waking him up between 3 and 4 to eat during the night. His ped said I could stop this and that he's getting enough during the day. My question is - what do you think? Should I keep waking him up for a nighttime feeding or not? I tried not waking him up last night and he did not wake himself up - I ended up waking him up at 6 b/c I was so full. He has occasionally woken up on his own (maybe 2 or 3 times since birth) to be fed in the middle of the night (when I haven't heard my alarm or he woke up before my alarm went off). Thoughts???
Thanks for the advice!
