I have been blessed with a baby who sleeps! Addison pretty much screamed the first 4 days of her life... but after our visit with a lactation consultant and a lot of prayer, she started sleeping. The consultant suggested I feed her more during the day so she would go longer at night... I think her advice is working! I try to feed Addison every two hours from when she wakes up and do my last feeding between 8:00 and 9:00pm. For over a week now, she only wakes up around 2:00am and then again between 5:00 & 7:00. This means I am getting about 4-5 hours of sleep between each feeding! I was a bit worried that she was not eating enough, but since she gaining a proper weight, we got permission to let her go up to 6 hours at night. Such a blessing and I am so very thankful!
