My daughter (born at 35 wks due to severe PE at 4 lbs 9oz) has been sleeping through the night for the past three nights (10pm until 5am). She is 3 months, two months adjusted weighing just over 10 lbs. Up until the last three days, she woke every two hours for feedings. During the day she eats 3 to 4 oz every three to four hours (mostly a two oz bottle every hour and a half). I called my peds office, the nurse did not seem concerned, but my nerves still won't let me relax. I know that being healthy does not mean that she has to be above the 50th percentile by any means...but should I wake her up for middle of the night feedings?
Jill (me) 28 yrs, severe PE with "sticky" BPs for one month after delivery.

Tessa (lovely & very much loved daughter) born on 4/8/2011, 4 lbs 8oz at 7:58pm (the number eight was our anesthesiologist's lucky number, no lie!), severe PE at 35 wks, needed a little warmth in the NICU for ten days.
