Re: 5 month old sleeping issues bf related?

It's totally normal for a 5.5 month old to wake that often. Many will have a longer stretch in the early part of the night--maybe 5 hours (that's considered STTN). But certainly not all will.

My DD didn't sleep that long until well after a year--perhaps after 18 months--i don't remember since my memory of those days is quite foggy. My DS has been sleeping 5 to 7 hour stretches for a few months now. Both are/were breastfed.
