Dropping a feeding at night!

I have a 6 week old and she's sleeping 6 hours from 8:30 PM to 2:30AM and feeding and then going back to bed. Then waking up 2.5 hours later to feed again! Any suggestions on how to drop that last feeding so she'll sleep through it? I've tried giving her a paci but that doesn't work!

A 6 hour chunk at 6 weeks is good. Be grateful for that and just feed her when she wakes up again.



My girls were waking 2 (or more) times a night until 3 months old. That's when they went to only waking once in a 12 hour night.



My son pretty much didn't sleep longer than a 4 hour stretch (except on rare occasion) until he was a year and a half....

You're getting a six hour chunk most moms are lucky if they get 3 hours. Just feed your baby it's what she needs.
