Thread: 6 week old sleeping through the night

  1. #1

    Default 6 week old sleeping through the night

    Should I be waking up my 6 week old in the middle of the night to feed her or should I let her sleep? I put her to bed at 10pm and she got up this morning at 6am.

    If everything else is going well, then I would enjoy the sleep! But be prepared - unfortunately it may not last.

    "everything else" includes making sure she's gaining weight appropriately and has enough wet diapers (6-8 per 24 hours). and if that's fine, enjoy it while it lasts! you may need to pump to relief in the middle of that, if you feel engorged.

    I wouldn't wake a sleeping baby at that age.

    Thank you all for replying! She is gaining weight and has enough wet diapers.
