Baby Sleeping thru the night
Hi Doc
My soin is 5 months old. He sleeps thru the night. From about 8pm till around 5-6am the next morning and he does not awaken at night. When I mentioned this to the Storks Nest Nurse last night as I has a problem with my son, she said that he should not be sleeping thru for so long. Is this true? And what do you advise I do?
Thanks

This is quite alright. Your baby is obviously very content and I am sure that he is gaining weight and growing well. You will be the envy of most mothers who write in to this Paediatric line.
