I genuinely do worry though. My baby sleeps 10 hours straight and basically most information out there suggests it's actually a risk to baby!
Honestly this lady is such a resource! It's the 6th or 7th post I shared but generally she is fabulous especially if you Breastfeed
But also on that note, my concern wasn’t posted here, I called the HV and spoke to the feeding clinic. I completely understand that this is a safe place for advice etc, but if you’re concerned about your babies well being my first stop would always be the professionals, not a forum (sorry, I know that’s controversial) x
@Mou I’d be really interested to read that. I’ll go on the hunt for it now.
I was concerned when my LB started to sleep from 9pm - 4am as he was dropping a feed 😓 I’d not seen consultant since he was 2 weeks and his blood sugar wasn’t going up after a feed, so we was told wake every 2/3 hours for a feed and I think that caused me to be over anxious.
I’m now hoping and pray for a little more sleep as I think he’s now started to go through the regression 😓 but it’s only a phase! 🤞 x
@Mou yeah exactly which is why it can sometimes cause worry for other people. Therefore I don’t see how someone asking about their babies sleep pattern can be considered as boasting, it appeared like a genuine question from someone who needed reassurance. Maybe they had looked at other peoples posts and just needed to hear from others who shared the same experience and they hadn’t seen a post like that before. They shouldn’t then be called out for it! It’s posts like this that make me worry about posting and often then stay incognito
@Char this is really why comparing is the theif of joy. This is a June group but a baby born June 1 at 41 weeks will differ hugely to mine born Jun 30 at 37...
I smell jealousy 😂 why you bothered hun? Is a general question and this what the app is for?
I wouldn’t say it’s bragging. It’s a general concern as you don’t know whether to wake the baby to feed them, it’s a long time to go without a feed.
I’m actually more upset by this post than the ones you’re referring too😂
Everyone and anyone should be able to post whatever they like and not be made to feel bad about it. I don’t feel like it’s bragging at all. I’ve seen multiple posts from mums who’s babies are going through the sleep regression and it would worry me too if my baby was sleeping much more than what those mothers were referring to. Even if a doctor said to me that it was “normal”, no one knows their baby like the mum does, and even with doctor advice I’d still worry. It sounded more like they wanted reassurance and they may not necessarily check this app everyday to have seen the multiple posts about others who do sleep through.
They are one very lucky mumma, but I don’t believe they were trying to brag.
I don't think it's bragging. You see so many posts on here about babies waking up multiple times a night, so if your baby is sleeping through for 10 hours you might be concerned. This app is for everyone to share experiences and talk about it with other mums. We all have different experiences and come on here for reassurance sometimes :)
I see like 4 posts 'ia it the regression ' re unsettled sleep from 4am... I posted yesterday an insta post from a lactation consultant explaining why it happens and how normal it is... barely any interaction but a sleep regression post and it's all kicking off there... 🤷🏻♀️
I genuinely think they are concerned and don’t think anyone is disguising it as concern but perhaps that’s just how you are reading it. Everyone is allowed to post any questions or be concerned about anything to do with their babies, whether it’s been mentioned multiple times or not- we’re only human and trying to do the best for our babies.
Perhaps have some time off the app if this is frustrating you 😊
@Mou literally 😅
@Chloe I love it too and my issue is not with people saying their babies are sleeping through ! it’s just the fact it is attempted to be disguised as concern, how many posts of it has there been and every time the comments are no enjoy your sleep so don’t see how anyone can still be concerned
Yeah and then when you do a post that says hey all, all this sleep behaviour is ok and normal from sleeping through to waking 2 hourly you get shit comments back moaning that everyone wants individual reassurance. Ok cool keep on anxietying.

I would honestly be lost without this group so I would literally post all sorts just to see I’m not alone. I check this app like it’s part of my daily routine. All the girls on here are all amazing. Even if I don’t post I sometimes see other people post the same thing I am going through. I love it x
I think as a ftm even if doctors say no concern ur always gonna worry 🙃 they’ve probably come on here to see if anyone else is in the same boat not to ‘brag’ lol
I don’t think it’s bragging at all 🙂
@Kayla the last one I’ve seen incognito literally states in the comments that the doctor told her you don’t need to wake from 8 weeks as long as good weight gain, so if a doctor has said it’s fine surely there’s no cause for concern 😂 idk maybe I’m just bitter lol
I think sometimes they are concerned lol I know I was when my girl started sleeping 10 hours a night as it comes as a shock
