Hi, I'm a 1st time mum and my little girl is all most six months old, and I'm in the habit of getting up and feeding her through the night, but the last three nights have been different. The last feed before bed is 6.20pm and then I put her down at 7pm. So the 1st night she slept until 4am so I feed her and put her back to bed. She slept until I got her up at 7am.
2rd night she slept until 2.50am but she wasn't fully awake so I did a dreamfeed. Put her back to bed slept again until I got her up at 7am.
3rd night she slept until 4.50am started to cry so I got up to get her milk, came back and she had put herself back to sleep.
I still give her the milk, but I wanted to know if it happens again and she wakes up and puts herself back to sleep (like the 3rd night) should I dreamfeed her or is it ok to let her not feed again until I wake her at 7am? How old are other mums babies when they started to sleep longer or through the night

I would say it's okay to just let her sleep, my son was sleeping through the night at 4 months and the doctor said to just let him sleep, she'll let you know when she's hungry, good luck momma and congrats on being a first time mommy!
