      I wish there had been an option for "No - the baby never once slept 5 hours that early." :)

      I'm with Mollyanne...the *only* time I woke my son to eat in the middle of the night (besides the DF) was when he was a few hours old at the hospital and he really really didn't wnat to eat. After that night he never slept longer than 5 hours for the early months. :)

      I NEVER woke my son up. When he was young he was sleeping 8 hrs. He was chunky enough that I didn't bother and my supply was never harmed. If only he had kept sleeping that well. Ha!

      Hahaha, neither of my kids slept that long for months. They had allergies. I guess it might be different once your milk is "established," but I did manage to keep my supply for 2 years with the first and so far 15 with the second, just by sticking to a schedule, even when we were down to 2-3 feeds/day.

      Same here, both of my sons wouldnt sleep for more than 3 hrs at night. They would fuss enough to where it would wake me and it was right around the 2-3 hr feeding time, so instead of letting them escalate I would pick them right up and nurse them, and it was easier for them to fall back asleep. Normally when I did it this way, they never even opened their eyes. They ate and when they were done, they would push off and go back to sleep.

      My 8 week is old is now sleeping through the night on the schedule of 7-10-1-4-7-10... My question is should I still wake up and pump once in the middle of the night to keep my supply up? I'd LOVE the sleep but I'm nervous to go that long without stimulating my milk. Thanks so much!
