Not generally! Is she doing ok on the feeding front? Putting on weight etc? If this is a one off long sleep id leave her but if it gets to be regular id start to be more concerned with whether she was getting enough

I used to have to wake Sam up all the time but that was on medical grounds as he was prem. she's still tiny so I wouldn't leave her much longer than 4 1/2 hours without a feed :-?

She's doing really well weigh wise now. They are targeted on an ounce a day apparently and last week she did 12 ounces in a week bless her! Am clearly pumping some high calories lol! That's ok then. Wasn't sure as Chloe literally didn't do 4 hours until she was about a year old and that was at night. X

Ben was doing 5-6 hrs at night at 6 weeks. It was a short lived blessing! Neither if the other two did that. If shes fed regularly through the rest of the day I wouldn't worry.

I can't remember! I know I didn't let them sleep in the late afternoon but that was later. Oh dear oh dear, I'm fine with week 1 stuff but am seriously going to struggle after that as it has been so long :panic:

Glad she has woken and had a good feed :)
