Sophie has slept through the night - twice now!

I can't believe it Thumbs Up I thought it was the jabs perhaps the other day but for the 2nd night, she's slept through Clapping

Her 'night' goes from around 8pm - 4 or 5am which is still pretty good. Mind you, I have to still get up and express or I'm flooded Embarassed

Could this be the start of something good? Fingers crossed

Thumbs Up You must be feeling so much better getting a good chunk of sleep in a row too! I know i couldn't believe it the first time i got an almost full night! You are definitely doing something right for her to be doing so well hun so keep up the good work! Xx

I could but she's not interested at that point. I'm happy to express as then Mike gets to feed her too which he loves doing Very Happy

YAY well done Sophie Clapping
Hopefully it continues for you hun (keep my fingers crossed).The expressing is a bit of a bugger but as you said at least your other half gets the chance to feed as well.There is nothing worse than waking up drowning in a sea of breast milk Gag .PMSL

i was going to say that if baby sleeps too long at night your milk supply can drop so you should try and wake baby

but i guess if your milk supply dropped it would really matter as you are having over supply problems Embarassed

so you can ignore me im waffling again

My milk supply has dropped a bit now that she's sleeping through. However, I don't have to express at night but she's fine through the day and by 5am when she wakes up, I have rock solid boobs Embarassed She then normally feeds every 2 - 3 hours throughout the day and I've still been able to express around 3oz so I'm ok at the moment. To be honest, I'm really appreciating the sleep Sleep

She's still doing well. Has been sleeping through from 8 weeks until now (14 weeks). She did want a feed at 1.30am this morning but that was because she missed a feed in the evening after we'd been swimming and she just slept through it...bless her Hug

Am I lucky or what Smile
