So my DD2 is 11 days old and from day 5 has been sleeping 4-5 hour stretches at night. She will cluster feed in the evening, nursing long stretches alternating breasts on and off from 10-12 at night and then I will nurse her to sleep at about 12:30 and she will sleep through till 4:30/5:30 am. We co-sleep so it is not like I am sleeping through any hunger cues and I have even tried a few times to get her to dream feed but she is out and will not take the boob. She then will wake a bit and root and grunt to nurse, I do a diaper change and nurse her back to sleep and she will again do a 3-5 hour stretch.
She is gaining well, she was 8lbs 7oz when we left the hospital and 3 days later was up to 8lbs 12oz and then 2 days after that was up to 9lbs 0.5oz (she was 9lbs 3oz at birth) so at a week was almost at her birth weight.
She has good output with lots of pee and poo diapers (however 2 nights ago went 8 hours with no pee or poo but then made up for it with 3 big pees in less then an hour)
She is just so different then my DS who needed to nurse/suck every 1.5 hours all night and had a poo at every feed. I also had crazy oversupply with him and I do have lots of milk with DD but not the crazy amounts I had with DS.
Anyway does this fall in the realm of normal? Should I just relax and enjoy the sleep or should I be trying to wake her up during the night?
Oh she is also sleeping tons during the day but is waking to nurse every 2 hours or so with some cluster feeding when she wakes in the morning. She has 2-3 wakeful periods that last anywhere to 20 mins to 1.5 hours.
