Sleep!!
 
My baby had been sleeping 10-11 hrs with just one feeding. Last night she slept 11 hrs and never woke up for her feeding. she is 3.5 months. I was excited for the sleep, but should I be worried?

I have no idea, but wow, that's crazy! I was thrilled with Ingrid sleeping 6.5 hours (8:30 PM to almost 3 AM) after doing a breastfeeding at 7ish and 2.5 oz pumped milk from a bottle at 8 PM! I got 4 hours in a row- it was amazing.

I'm not sure if you should be worried. You should ask your Pedi! It does sound like a LOT of time sleeping. 11 hours is a huge chunk of time. I would just ask her doctor.

Darion just hit 3 months and sleeps for about 7 hours on his first stretch at night but that's on about 4-6 ounces of breast milk. Then he does 3-4 hour stretches during the day on that same amount. He also stays up a lot longer in between now.

she is awake from about 11 am on with maybe a 30 minute nap here or there. she eats at least every 3 hrs during the day.

after having 3 kids...no I wouldn't be worried! I feed my babies as often as they'd like during the day and wind up getting a long period over night...working on that this time around, but with my other 3 I got 12 hours!

WOW that is a lot of sleep!

Tessa usually does a 5 hour stretch at first (10-3ish) and then she's up at 6:30 and then up at 9 for the day ... and she only takes mini catnaps during the day. I swear, my kid does not need to sleep lol

As long as growth is occurring, and there are enough wet diapers, I wouldn't worry...just enjoy! Don't be surprised if there's a regression in sleep around 4 months, though...it's normal. But yay for sleep!

Nice!

I'm excited for anything more than 3 hours at a time! We went camping last weekend and all the fresh air konked him out for 6 hour stretches at night, it was amazing.

Enjoy the rest!

My daughter is pretty similar. She's been sleeping about 8 hours each night since she was 5 - 6 weeks old. She wakes up after 8 hrs, eats for about 15 minutes and then goes back to sleep for 2 - 3 hours. Sometimes she eats for another 15 minutes and then goes back to sleep again. So, she can be asleep for more than 12 hours with just 2 short feeding sessions in the morning. However, she's basically stopped napping, so she'll be wide awake from noon until 10 or 11 at night with only a few 10 - 15 minute naps some days, which gets exhausting. I haven't really done anything to get her on a schedule, so that's what I have to figure out now.

But, yes, I think it's great that your daughter is sleeping that long. Enjoy it!
