I've got a sleeper . . .

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
. . . and it is freaking me out! Silas takes a 3-4 hour afternoon nap and sleeps a 4-6 hour stretch at night, plus a couple of 3 hour stretches. When he is awake he does single-sided feedings (I always do these because I usually have oversupply issues) quite often, like every hour. He is almost two weeks old. He seems to be gaining more slowly than my other two (who were non-sleepers and nursed all. the. time.) but he is gaining from what I can tell, and he seems quite content other than a little gas. I should be enjoying this, right? I shouldn't worry? It is just so strange to me. And I worry a tiny bit about my supply, but it should be okay, right?

You should be fine. Mine are usually good sleepers the first month or so. Enjoy it. From my experience it doesn't mean it will last.

My DD was a great sleeper in the beginning too and now she wants to nurse every 1.5 hours or so as of 3 weeks old.

Ali is 5 weeks old. She sleeps WAY more than my older two ever thought about. Of course, she does wake every 3 hours at night to nurse but the other two were every 1-1.5 hours. She sleeps forever all day long. It's crazy. Dh and I were worried for the first couple of weeks because of it. It is nerve wrecking when you aren't used to it! I say, relax and enjoy it.

Mine's a sleeper too - sooo different than DS1! I'm just enjoying it for the time being. DS1 was a good sleeper at night (but a catnapper all day), but that only lasted for the first 3 months. Then he started waking up more and more often until at one point he was waking up every hour all night long. Fun.
