My DS is just shy of a month old and last night was sleeping over 5 1/2 hours (totally not complaining). I know you usually don't wake a sleeping baby, but I dont want him to be dehydrated. He is still very little! Would you wake him up to feed him? I decided to wake him and he was STARVING. He went right back to bed for another 4.5 hours.

No - I never woke my boys at night. I did wake them up every 3-4 hrs during the day though.

Re: Sleeping

Nope, never woke a sleeping baby. They will wake up when they need food. Waking a baby can create worse habits.

Of course, if your baby isn't gaining weight, then the dr might tell you to wake the baby. But otherwise, nope!

Never woke either of children at night for a feeding. I waited for them to let me know when they wanted to eat.
