    Default 5 week old nursing habits?

    HI there again. My little one has been asleep/ afternoon nap for going on 2 1/2 hours. We have experienced longer stretches at night,but was wondering if I should wake him like they instructed me at the hospital or let him go a little longer in the daytime? He is 5 weeks old- really just trying to nurse on demand- but wondering if they go longer on average between feeding and things like that?? Thanks ladies!

    At 5 weeks I wouldn't worry that much about a long stretch of sleep here and there as long as you are following your baby's cues. You can watch diaper output to be certain he is getting enough milk, and offer a little more often if you deem it necessary based on that.
