my 2 and a half month old boy sleeps for 5 to 6 hrs at a stretch sometimes at night.. he gets up when he is hungry.. is that ok.. should I wake him up and feed him.. will he get dehydrated..

Neha Agarwal

Nope no need. He will get up when he is hungry. Let feh child follow natural instincts. You will make child cranky if you wake him up. Let him sleep peacefully. you are lucky! :))

Dr. Riddhi Kataria

Demand feeding is good to follow. Only if you observe that feeds in 24 hours are less than 8 then wake the baby up

Bansi Dholakia

bcoz of growth hormone secretion ur baby sleeps longer, dont disturb, it will wake up if it is hungry

Priya Sood

Very normal for the child. Let your baby decide.

Jessica Gomez
