How Do You Get Baby To Sleep Through The Night
Avoid night activity: Babies more than 3 months old can usually be trained to sleep through the night. The younger babies might go 6 hours before feeding, but the older babies should be fine until breakfast time the next morning. Do the same relaxing bedtime routine each evening. Put the baby in the crib, say "goodnight", and walk away. He might wake up off and on and cry but will soon learn to fall asleep by himself. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Probably fine, : As long as she is gaining weight well up to this point. Most babies to sleep longer stretches after about 6-8weeks of age and after they reach 10lbs.

That varies: New babies don't sleep through the night because they need to awaken to feed. As they get bigger, they sleep longer.
