    he must be really needing it. He must be getting really good feeds from you to be so content. Well done :cheer:

    Let him sleep hun, babies brains are processing all the info and they grow loads too at that point as you know! so they need loads of kip, im happy hes sleeping well - our milk supply must be excllent and providing edwars with all he needs.

    Well done you! :cheer:

    My baby was like that too - slept ALL the time - I was desperate for her to wake up!

    Hnanah slept basically 22 hours a day for exactly 2 weeks... then totally changed, wanted to be 'amused' A vibrating chair became abit of a life savour by 6 weeks.

    My mum (whos raised 5 kids) said at the time it was totally normal.
