He does not have strict times for feeding and sleep yet, but overhaul:
A hour in the morning between his morning feedings
About 2-3 hours in early afternoon (just after lunch)
A hour at most around dinner time
after 21.00 he usually falls asleep until his night feedings
and during his night feedings (usually 1 or 2 each night) he falls right back asleep unless it is around 06.00
For me, I get around 4 hours each night.
I will go to bed after his last evening feeding, which is around 23.00 - 0.00 and then it depends on him how many times I get out my bed at night. Usually around 3-4 times. I am trying to 'force' him to sleep through by putting his paci in a few times until he really really wants mommies boob
He was waking up a couple times a night like he did the first month, but the last two nights he's slept until I wake up at 5. So I've been able to get 6-7 hours straight which has been wonderful. His naps have no schedule at all. Hopefully he'll get into a routine over the summer so I can plan outings with my older boys.
Tyler still naps a couple times a day anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour and half long. She sleeps great at night...we usually get one good 4 to 6 hour stretch, usually more towards 6 hours. I however am not sleeping well..I have bad insomnia so i just do whatever instead of sleeping or else i just toss and turn for hours on end. I hate it!

Im completely exhausted. Tristan just doesn't seem to sleep much. He goes down around 10pm and up by 6am but between those hours he wakes up to eat about every 2-3 hrs. When do they start sleeping through the night??? During the day he'll take a 45 min- 1 hr nap around 10am, then around 2pm and again around 5pm. I spoke with his md about this and all she said is that he wakes up cause he is hungry since he is a snacker. Tristan still wont drink more then 3.5 oz at one feeding!! im soooo pooped what wouldne give for 5 hrs of consecutive sleep.
We still dont have any kind of schedule and tbh I think I am just too exhausted to establish one with her. She has slept more than 4 hours only a handful of times and last night was the first time she slept a decent period of time and I didnt wake every hour on the hour just out of habit. My dh works his last day today before starting parental leave so that should help. He wasn't going to take it but it feels like he has missed out on a lot of her first few months and I feel like I am missing out on a lot just because I am too exhausted to be aware of it. Not sure if that makes sense but anyways it will be nice to have the help.
