Re: Sleeping long stretches at 6 weeks old
I don't think you need to worry, mama. Everything sounds totally normal to me. I say, unless you see the number of wet diapers start to drop, you don't need to worry about it. And I'm guessing the sleeping 5 hours thing won't last long . All that said, if you are going to worry about it anyway...go ahead and wake her once during that long stretch. I definitely don't think you need to wake her every two hours, but if you want to try and get in a dream feed in those early morning hours, it won't hurt anything and it would probably make you feel a little calmer.
