K sleeps anywhere and everywhere he usually falls asleep on me (he has a little "i'm tired" cry which I recognise, so I pick him up and he snuggles into me and goes to sleep within minutes) and then I either put him in his cot or on a pillow on the floor or in his bouncy chair or the pram. If he falls asleep in the sling I leave him in it.
We've also done the "make it noisy" approach and so he sleeps through anything. In fact usually better with noise!
I am a lucky mama, he's such a great baby! He is quite high maintence when he's awake (very whingy, very short attention span) so the great sleeping/feeding etc really helps. I have been miserable as sin the last week since his op since neither of us have had much sleep and it made me realise just how hard it must be for you guys who don't have babies that sleep through xxxx
Moggy/Lydia - Hope the Jabs went ok for you both and you have an uneventful next few days
Ann/Yas/Lia - Hi ladies
Pip - This is my response....just because i want to
1. What time does your LO get up?
2. How many naps and approx. when and how long for during the day?
No real routine but in general i think something like this...she sleeps for an hour or so 8.00-9.00 and then again 10.30-11.30 Then 12.30 - 2.30pm and probaly another hour or so around 4.30-6 pm.
There's actually more of a pattern than i thought, but she does sleep a lot. More than Jac did. At four months old Jac only slept 30mins 3 times a day so its weird for me But i cant remember when a routine appeared for him though...
3. How many feeds during the day?
We FF but we have pretty much 7am , 11.30am, 3.30pm, 7.45pm. I pretty much go on shcedule unless she cried for it first which is very rarely.
4. What time does LO go to bed? And how? Are you putting LO awake in the cot and they just fall asleep? Does LO cry?
In bed by 8.15 - 8.30 awake in cot and i put the dream show on for 10 minutes. She can take ages to go to to sleep most nights though...anything between 10 - 30 mins. But Jac was the same and it worked for him with just leaving him...must say the dream show worked for him more than Ana. She takes a dummy during the day but doesnt need it for bed sleep so i dont give it....dont want to go down the route of having to wake up during the night to give it to her.
Like Yas's K ....Ana is high maintenance when she's awake during the day but sleeps well at night (touches wood!). She can get restless at times after 5am but isnt awake so i just leave her now. Pretty soon i think we'll have to move her in with Jac(untill we decide on who goes where int he house e.g. attic) as hubbys alarm seems to unsettle her on his early shift even though she doesnt wake. Time will tell next week
She's very sleepy/teary already, poor little thing, she just wants to be cuddled. The nurse was fab, did it as quickly as possible and then said we could use the room for as long as we wanted to feed etc, the doc prescribed her calpol (saved a few pennies!) and without me even asking the nurse gave us a teeny syringe.
