Is your baby awake for longer periods of time now? How long will baby stay awake between naps?
Jacob is having more awake times during the day now. He will usually stay awake for around 2 hours in between his naps in the mornings and then during the afternoon and evening he will stay up between 1 hour and 1 1/2 hours. Thankfully at night he will give me one 5 hour stretch of sleep, then he gets up to eat then right back to sleep, so no awake time except to eat during the nighttime.
JR is awake in the mornings for about 3 hours, then takes a really long nap. Then in the afternoon he's up for 2 or 3 2 hour sessions. At night he falls asleep at 7:30-8 and sleeps until 3 am, then eats and goes right back to sleep!
Nick seems to have a 3 hour cycle during the day. He'll wake up at 5am and be awake for about 3 hours and then sleep for 3 hours. He does this all day until about 6pm when he wants to eat every hour until about 9 or 10pm. Then he sleeps through the night.
This schedule makes planning anything for the evening difficult but daytime planning is pretty easy.
Archer seems to never sleep much during the day just small cat naps here and there. Part of the problem is he wakes when I put him down. So it seems he's up most of the day. I'm trying to figure something out though. Since reading naps would make it easier for him to get to sleep at night. Once he's down he sleeps ten hours. But it takes tons of tries to get him to sleep. Lately he's on DH's schedule and goes down for the night at 4 am. So needless to say its tiring and I'm trying to get him down sooner. I've tried the bath and settling down routine with no luck.
