Long naps

My 6 weeks at times sleep for 7 hours, unless I wake her up for feeds? Has someone experience this? Is it ok to let Them sleep that long.. she is more than her birth weight

    Is she sleeping that long during the day or night? If it is during the day, I would suggest waking her because it sounds like she has day-night confusion. This way she will start to sleep those longer stretches at night

    I agree with Jenn. If she’s sleeping that long during the day you will need to help her get her days straight. After about 1 month I stopped waking the baby during night to feed. I let her wake me instead so mama got some rest!

    During nights also I have to wake her for feed, but yes at that time when she is up for feed she doesn’t sleep easily after feeds during night.. I am super stressed since I don’t know if someone has experienced it and if it’s ok, since most of the kids do not sleep beyond 2-3 hours and get up for feed
