Re: Breastfed babies and sleeping
in my experience with my LO (now 10 months), and from what i've read from more experience mamas all over this board - your baby sounds absolutely typical. in fact, 4 hour stretches of sleep?! awesome. the staying up 1-2 hours at a time, not so awesome. he doesn't go straight back down from nursing?
for me, co-sleeping has been a life saver, as i can nurse and sleep at the same time. my baby is still nursing every hour or two all night, sometimes with a longer stretch in the wee hours, but honestly i don't wake up enough to keep track most of the time.
