Morning Nap?

Regina - posted on 02/03/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




My little one is just about 3 weeks old now and I wanted to no if its normal for him to take such a long nap at this stage without eating. He last ate around 9 this morning, went to sleep at 10 and is now just waking to eat. Is this normal at this stage or is it to early for him to take such nap with out eating?

yup! It is always freaky when they start sleeping without feeding. just think of it as a growth spurt. He only ate 1 hour before sleeping so he has enough in him to feel satisfied. Have some much needed rest and enjoy.

I think its pretty normal for a newborn to just sleep and eat. My little guy would wake up to eat every 3 to 4 hrs at first. He would have 3 to 4 ozs at a time. Listen to your "mom-dar" and if you think he isnt ok ask your doc. Sounds like he's just being a newborn though!
