Your a lucky Mom ...my kids did the samething and slept thew the night at an early age. If your baby wants to sleep let him/her sleep as long as shes healthy and is gaining enough wait, they might just be very well scheduled. My kids did it and they are perfectly healthy. No need to freet mommy! Goodluck!!

My son's been sleeping 12 hours through the night since he was 8 weeks. It's great! He goes to bed at 8 and wakes up at 8. Of course he's usually pretty hungry when he wakes up but he's perfectly fine after a change of diaper and his bottle.

I have.My son is 3 months old and he is sleeping 9-10 hours without feed.This is my second child, and i know that if everything is o.k. than the baby would sleep as long as he/she wants,that means the baby does not want enything but a good sleep.Dont worry, and be happy that you can rest while your baby is sleeping.You will need the energy for the days that come.Best wishes Biljana :))

Definately through the night! As long as they are healthy and happy why upset them? Hunger is a waking trigger for most (if not all) babies so they will let you know if they are hungry in between and you can make the most of some sleep :)

That would depend on the child. Some babies like my daughter slept all night from 3 months and was happy enough (although as soon as she woke up she needed food and you knew about it). Others like my son still wants his feed in the middle of the night. You have to play it by ear as you know your little one.
