My 2 month old son sleeps through the night already. After a feeding, bath and lotion massage he goes to bed at 8pm and wakes up at 5:30am. I breast feed him before getting his brother ready for school and he passes out in the car. He has two more naps for 3-4 hours each before starting the bedtime routine again. Inbetween the naps all he wants to to is snuggle, smile, play with his connecting links. He eats well. Loves baths and watching his big brother play. It seems too good to be true. Sure the first few weeks I was tired but now its a breeze. Is it normal to have such an easy baby? I keep waiting for the stress of raising two children to start. Am I worring over nothing?

You may say that now... my son slept through the night (9 hrs) at 7 weeks, was calm in baths, basically a perfect baby!

Now at 9 months, we have to take him into the shower (my husband AND I) and wash him quickly, he screams the whole time (it's even worse in a tub or sink) he doesn't sleep through the night (but thats because babies are not meant to sleep through the night, it has to do with their brains making repairs and building new cells to store info) and my god does he put up a fuss when it's nap time (just spent 2 hrs with him screaming so hard he was choking, and this was me rocking him!)

Just try not to get used to it! Hopefully it stays that way, some babies do...

That is too funny. My baby is the same way. Sleeping through the night. Bed @ 8pm after her bath and lotion massage and feeding. She sleeps until 4:30am I feed her again for about 15min then she is right back to bed for another 4hrs. then gets up and eats again, is awake for about an hour then back to sleep for another 2 or 3 hrs. I was worried about telling anyone because I'm afraid I might jinks it LOL!
Just go with the flow and enjoy, there is nothing wrong with our babies. We just got really lucky ♥

I remember those glorious days! My son started sleeping through the night at 2 months. He almost never cried and was just as sweet as pie most of the time. Now I look at my screaming, spoiled rotten, 1 year old little angel and wonder where that good baby went. Enjoy t while it lasts.......lol!

My second son was super easy as well... he is now 2.5 years old and is still so easy going and fun to be around. I have learned (through my 4 year old) that they change a lot through each step along the way and things do get challenging. Enjoy it while it lasts. Before you know it, other kids and adults will have influence over them and everything changes.

My second baby is two months too! And both of my children were good babies!! Everyone talks about how horrible and sleepless the first year is with a baby and I never had that experience. As soon as we were home from the hospital we started our routine and feeding times and they both slept 8 hr at night right off the bat. I was worried since the first one was so good my second would be one of those "bad" babies, but she has been perfect just like her sissy!! It makes my life as a mommy great:)!

@ Nikkole G.~Your aunt isn't all together wrong, the second is usually the opposite of your first. But since it sounds like you have a good baby now,your next will probly just be a bit more needy.
That is what happened to me...my first,Phoenix, was a complete angel as a baby,and my 2nd,Kira, is so klingy that I can't breathe somedays-she just wants to be held all the darn time!
I can't wait to see who will be the trouble maker out of my girls when they get older...

I would be worried about him sleeping so much bc he may not be getting enough milk. I would not complain about him being a good baby. The sleeping could change at anytime especially with developmental milestones. Good luck with your babies!

my baby girl was the same exact way :) she started sleeping 6 hours straight in the night when she was 2 weeks old. she would wake up eat and go right back to sleep for another 4 hours. She slowly started sleeping a bit longer straight and always if she were to wake up it was just feed, burp, change diaper, back to sleep :) she so easy since the beginning always smiling. The worst we had was about a week- 2 weeks of colic but it didn't affect her sleep. when she was around 9 months old she had a couple nights of not sleeping well, and didn't like baths anymore. They go through their stages while their learning new things, but all in all you are one of the lucky mommies so enjoy :)

hahaha, don't worry, you'll have your ups and downs, you're just on the up right now, and there will be more ups, and they'll get you through the downs (like teething!!)



Charlotte is 15 mths now, and was exactly like your son, I have it on paper as I kept track of her eating and sleeping for the first 7 mths, to the hour. (yeah, flippin' crazy, I know). You wouldn't have known there was a baby in the house half the time.



Then at 7 mths, she got her first tooth and didn't sleep through again until 14 mths except for one or two nights here and there.



She's now only waking sometimes, and is going to one sleep some days. She's growing. And I'll be there for her when ever she needs me, even during the downs.



Then again, you might have an Angel Baby, and show everyone they do exist, and they don't grow out of it.

Hi,
My 22 month old daughter was so quiet that we could have forgotten about her being in the house lol ... until she turned 1. She would have sat quietly in front of the television, occupied herself, slept through the night (11 hours), loved bath time, didnt want lifted.. i was able to take her to work with me (we have our own shop) and she just sat in her pushchair for my 4 hour shift lol! ..
then she turned 1 lol!!! ..she is very busy, walks, runs, climbs, lays on her tummy headbutting floors, wont eat, wakes through the night, fights at bath and bed time, hates her pram, escapes from her car seat! lol!! we call her our little bundle of joy lol. she has us well and truely on our toes now, making up for her 1st year lol.
enjoy your little one now, and i also hope it lasts for you. they have a funny way of trickin us lol. my little boy is 7 and a half months and he's absolutely brilliant, same way my daughter was... im just waitin for that 2 change lol ♥

I found the same thing. I think after you already have one the second seems like second nature. The first few weeks were hard for me as well, and now that my daughter is 10 months and my son is 2.5yr it is starting to get challenging again. She gets her feelings hurt easily, and my son torments that crap out of her now that she is moving around. It's horrible right now. I hope once she is walking,if she ever can because my son wont stop pushing her over, i hope he leaves her alone then and learns to play nice.

Hey girl enjoy it now while you can. I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old, my youngest was the same exact way up till he reached about 9 months. He would sleep at every available opportunity, and now it's a battle to get him to sleep. He would rather stay awake and follow his big brother around. At 7-9 months he would force himself to stay awake, just to watch his brother runa round him. He hasn't slept through the night since then, and wakes up 2-3 times a night, so my lack of sleep tends to catch up to me. Once your son gets ot be a big older and starts eating baby food, Im sure he'll wanna stay up with his big brother, even just sitting there watching him will make him wanna go go go too. lol.

My son was the same way. He slept thru the night @ 2 months and he's 17 months old now and I still have no problems with him. He always loved his sleep and would have 1 morning nap, 1 afternoon nap and then bed @ 7pm-9am. He turned 1 and cut out his afternoon nap himself and now goes to bed 6:30pm-9am. Of course there are a scattered night that he would wake up @ 2am but it's always for a reason (mostly bad dream) and I rock him to calm him and lay him back in his crib. He soothes himself for the most part and can put himself to sleep and he keeps himself occupied when I'm busy doing housework. We've been told we're extremely lucky and we know we are. So just enjoy the moments because you never know when your luck may change (not saying it will though ) =) We're hoping that when we get around to baby #2 that he/she is that easy as well.

both of my kids are like that. My 3 year old is still a dream about going to bed. He walks himself down there for his naps... you just turn around and he is gone. My 4 month old is sleeping through the night really well too. She fell asleep last night at about 9:30 and we got her up at 7:15 this morning. Don't be surprised if things change a bit because they do that occasionally, but don't expect it to get worse... it might be bliss forever. Enjoy it.

Enjoy it while you can! Hope it lasts on into infinity. All babies are different. My son was so simple as an infant, I really, really miss those days. By the time he could crawl, that is when the real trouble started. Now he can walk, talk, and defy! It's a madhouse. I love him, but kids can be crazy. Enjoy every single moment and don't stress until there is a reason.

My daughter is eleven months old. She has been the exact same way. She has slept through the night since she was 1month old and I was also breast feeding. She is now on solids , and homo milk, not to mention she has four new teeth and still a great baby! She has no bad side even when shes teething or sick. HAVING A GREAT BABY JUST MAKES YOU LUCKY! It's not an impossible thing.

Yours sounds about as happy and content as my 3.5mo old. Both of mine have been easy so far. My 24mo old has always been pretty easy, too. Even her tantrums aren't that bad.

Keep doing what you're doing, it obviously is working!

I think we both got lucky! lol my daughter is 6 Months now and since she was about a month and a half old she has been sleeping through the night and also wakes up around 530am for a feeding & goes back to sleep until around 9 and has a very distinct feeding/napping schedule throughout the day. I dont think you should worry!

I have a 2 month old as well. She is doing the very same thing. You are truly blessed to have a happy baby. I know I thank and give all the glory to God for a happy baby. She is my 4th, and all of them have been this way, I have them all on a schedule, and if you keep that, he will do just fine. :) Congratulations.

My oldest was like that. she sleeping all night at 3 days old- 10pm-6am have a bottle and go back to bed till 9am. Play all day take one 5 hour nap and play again. She didn't even cry until she was 2 months old and that was because I made her! And that took 2 hours of me kinda ignoring her. (I wanted to hear her cry) She got off the bottle and pacifier the day of her first b day with no problems, and was potty trained in 1 week at 24months. She is by far the best child I have ever met (i use to do daycare and have been around kids my entire life) Now my youngest is nothing like her and it was a hard adjustment going from an angel to normal baby behavior.. You are just lucky!
