    yup called cluster feeding!
    normal.
    Ive never had a sleeper, it must be great to get some sleep.
    I would be worth sitting in a chair all eve for a nice night sleep.
    Expect that to change though, sometimes they will sleep well for a few nights and then have a few nights where they don't.
