Has anyone else have a 5-6 month old that started sleeping through the night on their own? He is 18 lb's so maybe he doesn.t need the night feedings, but I read recently that the average long stretch of sleep for a BF baby is 4-7 hours even up to 12 months or longer. I may be paraniod because of my first child and the issues I faced with her. At his 6 month check his growth had slowed, but his length and weight had both slowed down. He goes to bed around 7:30 and wakes to eat between 5 and 6. I have been pumping around 10:30 PM partly because I don't want to go 10 hours without nursing and partly to have milk to mix with the tiny bit of cereal he eats. I am just nervous about losing my supply...
