    For an 8 wk old baby that sounds ok. By that age if he's hungry he'll sure let you know. As ppl said, if weight gain is ok, consider yourself lucky!

    I was actually a little concerned myself. My week old baby slept for 5hr 10min last night. I tried to wake him after 4 hours but he was having none of it. I gave him another hour and after quite a battle he finally woke and fed for ages (ouch!). I know this is not "normal" at such a young age, but is ok as long as he has big feeds before such a long sleep?

    Our one month old happily slept 5 hours plus. We decided to leave her sleep rather than pushing her to feed (which we tried and failed with). Now at 4 months she happily sleeps 10 hours plus through the night :)

    Lucky you, if your baby did gain the weight accordingly, just let her sleep, she knows what she needs!
