  • Yup, I had the same problem with Ash I would let her sleep at night and the ped said since she was heavier that she could go longer in between feedings... as long as she was gaining and peeing/pooping ok

  • You'er supposed to wake baby until he/she reaches birth weight --
    but WOW -- that was a BIG baby!!! lol -- might not be so much of an issue as long as steadily gaining now.

  • I am going to agree with the other ladies, he seems to be gaining and eating during the day I would let him sleep at night. he is almost back to Birth weight so I say you are doing a great job mommy!!!

  • I think you're fine letting him sleep, given that he's such a big boy.

  • Yup.

    Everyone else says what I say.

    Don't wake a baby at night. Wake during the day, but not at night.
    Be thankful that he's a good sleeper like that. It won't always be that way.

    Andrew's poop was VERY different than Sarah's. Hers was the typical breastfed poop but Andrew's was so strange. I questioned the ped about it so many times and she swore up and down he was fine. (which it turned out he was
     
    )
    his looked like eraser rubbings. Not the slightest bit liquid. and a B*tch to clean up as the wet wipes would NOT pick up the rubbings.
     


    He's gaining weight just fine, and he's pooping and peeing just fine too so let him carry on.
    As an aside, I hear that babies that are jaundice tend to do excessive sleeping, so I'd make sure that if he's a little orange, you strip him down to his diaper and let him sleep (or nurse as my Ped told me to do) by a window with light coming in. Eventhough there may not be direct sunlight, the brightness of the sun thru clouds is better than nothing. (and better than direct sun anyway
