I am curious if my 4 week old is sleeping well. He sleeps about 3 to 4 hours and then feeds. He eats between 10 and 11 and then between 2 and 3 am. Then it is between 6 and 7. Is this fairly normal for his age? During the day he eats about every 3 hours. He has been awake longer during the day. I can't remember my daughters routine. Although by 3 months she was sleeping through the night. Any thoughts on this???
my baby boy was the same way, hes now six months old and still not consistanly sleeping all night. He will every once in awhile but never two days in a row. :) He is not getting to where he wants to play about 4 in the morning (yeah!) lol I think boys are just hungry, alot. Good luck to you
Sounds perfect to me. Keep up the good work!
Sounds about right to me. I wouldn't expect him to sleep though the night until he's about 8 weeks, so this schedule seems on-target. Also remember that your son's patterns may be totally different than your daughters. Even with twins, every baby is different.
Sounds great! It is very important that newborns eat every few hours. Your pediatrician should advise you at his checkups how long he can go at night without a feeding based on his age and bodyfat stores. Right now, it sounds on track.
