    My little boy has just started going through from 7pm until about 6am, he sometimes wakes at 4am for a cuddle but other than that he's really good at sleeping... He's 15 weeks now and it's taken us some time to get established! I just find the bit between 6am and 8am a nightmare, he wakes with a smile but then gets really grumpy! I give his his bottle at 6.30am when he's woken up properly but then I'm struggling to know if he wants more milk ( he's on 7oz) or to go down for his nap earlier! I've been up and down the stairs and in and out the kitchen 6 times this morning!! Makes me feel like a crap mum as I don't know what he wants! He went to sleep at 8am quite well and wouldn't take more milk when offered, maybe he's just not a morning person like me!! Anyone else find this?! Please say I'm not alone, what are your mornings like? It would really help me to know! Xxx

    Hope I can help hun.

    I have always worked on the basis that Aria needs a nap around 1.5 to 2 hours after she wakes. So for ecample if she wakes at 6.30am I wait till 7am to give her her bottle then play with her for a while and by 8am she is rubbing her eyes so I put her downa nap. This has worked really well for us. A baby your LO's should be able to last about 1.5 hrs but not too much longer.

    Your not a crap mum, it just takes time to work out what they want! They change their minds so often!

    Thankyou, that really helps, I thought he was getting tired but needed some reassurance, I find it easier to ask on here as after 15 weeks I think family/friends get sick of hearing about it! Thank you again xx
