Re: Latching and Sleeping Question
Wow, 4-5 hours of sleep at just 11 weeks? Lucky! Seriously, there's no "should" when it comes to infant sleep. The only thing that's predictable about it is that it will change all the time. You'll think you have your baby's sleep patterns figured out, and then she'll go through a growth spurt or start teething or master some new developmental milestone and everything will change. Anyone who says that your baby should be sleeping X number of hours based on her age, or her weight, or the phase of the moon should be reminded that your baby is an individual, her needs are individual, and that you, the mom, are the person who is best equipped to know what your baby needs when she wakes up at night.
Where does baby sleep? In his own room, in your room, or in your bed? Often the key to dealing with frequent wake-ups is to adjust your sleeping set-up so that the wakings are least disruptive to you.
