Hi all.. Hope your all having a babyliciosous time. lol My Liitle Mylo is 18 weeks on sunday and his sleeping pattern is still more or less the same since he was first born. Sleeps 8-9pm for a few hours.. 12 midnight stirs and accepts dream feed but only takes about 40 mls then somewhere between 3-5am wakes again.. maybe another 40 mls or just dummy and goes back to sleep.. then 7am.. wakes.. same thing but maybe take more like half a bottle (90mls) 8-9am wakes.. same thing again.. by 10 am I am exhausted but give into defeat and get up.. Mylo smiiley and giglly til noon where he'll have a full bottle and go back to sleep!! grrrr the after noon naps are never the same. if I am busy and I go out in the car he'll sleep.. if I am at home.. he'll enjoy jumperoo and wont sleep.. If I put him in his cot when hes not even remotely tired.. he'll cry till I fix the problem. Sometimes there isnt even a problem.. and lately I have noticed he is cutting his first tooth.. (little white dot on bottom gum, lots of drooling and fist biting) So I gather now we are entering the teething zone.. shall I give up on trying to will him to sleep for longer intervals? Hes not yet weaned but tried him the odd morning on fruity porridge which he is still gagging on as hes not used to lumps in his throat so maye not quite ready. So I aint pushing it.. even though I read somewhere that once they wean onto the thicker food.. they sleep better? is taht true? Please help a mummy at the end of her rapidly fraying rope!
