Is it normal for her to wake, but not want anything?

Hi,
My daughter is 7weeks old and is sleeping fine ... she started sleeping through the night 2 nights ago. i just wanted to know if it is normal for her to wake in the middle of the night, but not wanting anything to eat. If i give her the dummy and a pat on the back she usually just goes straight back off to sleep. Is this normal before sleeping through by herself?
Thanks,
From Sarah.

Answer: Hi Sarah, You are very lucky to have her sleeping through at this age and most won`t until 6 months of age. All babies are different and if you can get her back to sleep easily well and good but don`t be surprised if things change as she may begin to get hungrier and require this overnight feed. Cheers, Maree
