    I all depends if im out and about , Ella falls asleep easily when im pushing her around and can sleep for awhile.

    But this is what usually happens, nap in the morning , lunchtime and afternoon. Varys from 1-3 hours.
    Then bed at about 8:30-9pm and she will sleep through till around 7-8 am.

    Bren has about the same nap schedule. He has been taking a 2 hour in the morning. Then a hour one about mid day then about an hour later. His sleeping is good the last two nights, but nothing consistant.

    Caitlyn wakes up between 8:30am and 9am usually. She has a nap late morning, followed by a feed. A nap again at about 2-4. Then is usually awake till 7ish. Sleeps til 8pm. Bathtime, bottle then bed by 9:30 etc.

    I have a very good sleeper on my hands. She seems to thrive on routine.

    Jack was born on the same day and has pretty much the same naps. One in between his feeds so 3 in total (8.30, 11.30, 2.30, 5.30). We get him to sleep 4.30 - 5.30 though and then keep him awake until 8 bath, fed and bed. He doesn't really wake in the night, just fidgets for the dummy until he cries but then straight back to sleep. He doesn't need a feed until 8.30am.

    What does he wake up for at night time for hun, a feed? If so maybe time for some solids?

    sometimes he wakes up every half hour soon he just winges for a bit usually due to bad trapped wind and when he spits his dummy out, most the time i just put his dummy back in and he goes straight back to sleep but the closer the time it is to waking up the harder i find getting him back to sleep sometimes it can take 20 minutes but he feeds twice a night still somemtimes 3 times . Ive started giving him rice once a day but next time i go shopping i think il get some more bits and start him on some other foods as hes 6 months soon. He usually goes to sleep about 9.30 and up proply at 8am xxx

    Wake up at 7-730am, eats and back to sleep until about 10am (LOVE that!), then up until around 2ish when we usually go for a ride in the car so she'll sleep for about an hour, then up till around 8ish, then conks out until 10-1030 when we do a bath, book, bottle and bed.

    My boys morning and midday nap is always around the same time, but his afternoon nap changes which is quite annoying as it makes his bed-time routine awkward.

    Routine 1:

    Sleep 4-4:45
    Bottle at 6
    Bath 7:30
    Sleep 8-9:30
    Bottle and back to sleep.

    Routine 2:

    Bottle 6pm
    Sleep 6:15-7
    Bath 9pm
    Bottle 9:30pm
    Sleep till morning.

    Now we want to bring his 9:30 bottle slighly forward which will work well when he is in routine 2 as we just bath him slightly earlier, feed and then he will go done.

    I just wish he would make up his mind as to which routine he wants. I think it depends on how much he plays during the day. Funny thing is that it doesn't matter which one he follows, he always wants the 9:30 bottle and will go straight to sleep after that.
