In brief: Congratulations

At 14 months, kids can do this and thrive.
Actually, some of my patients do it by 4 months. The stomach is just a loading dock for the bodies food processing center. There is always 10-12 hours worth of digesting material available to sustain baby for a generous sleep period. If they eat well during the day this is what we want for infants to achieve.
