My 9 week old is breastfed and has slept 11.5 hours in a row the last 2 nights. Is that ok? And she wakes up with a dry diaper, is that ok too? She feeds more often during the day since doing this, and she pees during the day too.<br><br><br>
My first daughter woke up every 2 or 3 hours for 18 months so I don't know anything about this sleeping through the night business!

My Dd has always woken up dry since she first started sleeping through the night. She's 4 months now and sleeps on average 9 hours a night. And when she wakes up it's because of hunger so she usually won't go for another hour. However we go through diapers like mad during the day.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> And she doesn't do it for naps, a wet diaper constantly wakes her up. Very frustrating for her and I.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked"> At first I was really worried about it though. I asked my pediatricion and he said that some babies are just like that. I think that she just sleeps more deeply than other kids or maybe has fantastic bladder control.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> It actually made me much more careful about SIDS just to be on the safe side.<br><br>

Isn't that annoying? Don't worry, it's just a phase and she'll probably be back to a normal amount of nursing at night around 4 months. This is a good time for you to do pumping if you have any need for expressed milk, and your LO will probably be willing to latch on for at least a little a couple times a night if you don't need expressed milk.<br><br>
As for being dry at night, that's less annoying <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">, but will probably also end when she takes in more fluids at night again.

My DD was like your DD1, she was up every 2-3 hours round the clock. DS came and has thrown everything I thought I knew out the window. His first night at home, he slept 7 hours at a day old. He just was like that. He also at 3 months started pooping only 2xs a week. He still is doing that at 7 months, it's just his thing, so weird. DD pooped like 3xs a day and at 3.5 still does some days. They all are just so different. she'd leak if STTN, he wakes only slightly wet.

My daughter was dry at night (even while nursing) from about 3 months on. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> It made potty learning a breeze for her.
