Q:

My lol sleeps 5 to 6 hrs in a stretch especially in night.; She used to get up every 2 hrs.; But from few days it's changed.; Even if I make her awake nd try to feed her,; she may open her eyes but don't drink milk.; I m worried that she is not having anything for 6 hrs



Neha Mani Mishra

Little ones change their sleeping pattern often..if she is sleeping at stretch no issue..keep trying to feed her..make some sound with your fingers on the back of the bottle when she is not opening her mouth..can also try to pat her on her feet..

Merline I had similar questions posted and the end result I got was feed her on demand and let her sleep. My daughter s paed too said the same but again my baby at a stretch slept till 5 hrs . This happened only once.. If not she gets up by 2 hrs sometimes 3 or 4. See if her pee count is good then she is full so better don't disturb her. You will soon check her weight so you will know n decide accordingly.

If you wanna wake her up then tickle her under feet or behind ears... If you are swaddling then unswaddle and make her drink.
Ask your doc in next visit if weight gain is good and baby is doing well then you can feed on demand. No need to wake her up.
