I didn’t ever wake up DS just to feed him. I believe that if a child is hungry they will wake up and let you know. The only reason I can see doing this is for medical reasons. Otherwise I say let them sleep. Be happy she is sleeping so long!  But that’s just my opinion 🙂

Sorry for some reason I thought it was for feeding but now that I read it again I don’t see anything about feeding just waking her up. Why were you having to wake her up to begin with?

At 2.5 weeks my daughter slept 6 hours one night!  They will wake up when they are hungry.

I have no personal experience but my mom always told me that I slept through the night from the very first week she took me home. She thought something was wrong with me since my brother never slept. Different kids have different habits.

@Mrscdnnavywife:  OK that makes sense then if she lost too much weight. Glad to hear she is doing good now, just enjoy that you can sleep for a 6 hour stretch without having to get up and feed.

My baby sister (who is now 3) was sleeping pretty much through the night the day she came back from the hospital. She’s perfectly healthy. You’re fine.

I’d say if they don’t think she needs to be woken up anymore to be force fed due to the weight then I”m sure they know what they’re talking about :). When she’s hungry she’ll wake up, and good for her for gaining weight! Big girl!

I have heard that for the first few weeks if your child doesn’t wake up in the night you should wake him/her to make sure the child is getting properly nurished but it’s rare that your child needs to be woken up.  Normally they are fine or they’ll wake up.  I would deffinately asking them and than get a second opinion just to be safe.
