6 week old only feeding once in the night

My DD has now gone three nights in a row sleeping 9pm till 2 ish, me having to wake her for a feed where she took literally 1 minute one night and 5 the others, then sleeping again until 6/7 am. Is this 'normal'? I am so worried she'll dehydrate etc as used to her waking twice in the night for a 10 min feed. She's quite an efficient feeder so never feeds for longer than 10/15 minutes anyway and has plenty of wet nappies but just wondered if at six weeks I should be waking her up for more feeds? She feeds between two and three hourly in the day and cluster feeds from 5pm till 8 most nights. Her weight again has been good, getting her weighed again on Wednesday.

Thanks!

Hi, I would discuss any sudden changes with your HV, although sounds ok to me, she sounds like a really good feeder and if her nappies are wet when she gets up then sounds like a natural progression. Give your HV a call to put your mind at rest xx

She sounds just like my little girl did at her age.. Ella would feed all evening - every 30 - 45 mins from about 5pm then at 9 would go to bed & sleep through till 6ish.
I spoke to my HV as i was a bit worried, but she said i should think my self lucky & enjoy the sleep as it wont be long till she's teething & waking up for cuddles.

Hi there Net, and congratulations on your little girl! : D I agree with the other ladies, if she's a good weight and feeding happily when she's awake then all sounds fine. She'll let you know when she's hungry. If I remember correctly, my DS was sleeping through from about midnight till 7am by 7 weeks (wish that had lasted a little longer...), and we freaked out the first time, but soon got used to a few hours undisturbed sleep - lovely! Will do no harm to ask your HV for advice if you are still concerned xxx

Thanks all. DH tells me to enjoy the sleep as well! As long as her weight gain is good on Wednesday I guess I'll just enjoy it while it lasts!
