How long does s/he sleep at night? starts off with 4 to 6 hours of sleep and then back to every 3 hours and some cluster feedings in the morning
Do you have a set bed time? We have it for our older child - 8 pm and Tristan just decided that his bed time is the same. This does not give me much sleep as there is no way I am going to bed at 8 pm, but it is a great start for him.
Is baby falling on any type of routine? Not really, but as I mentioned, he chose his bed time and we are sticking with it.
How often does your baby eat? BF or BF? BF - day time - every 2 - 3 hours night less often.
How often does your baby soil his or her diapers? Also too many too count. I have a pooper.
How old is your baby?
He'll be 6 weeks this Sunday.
How long does s/he sleep at night?
Mostly most of the night. He goes to sleep around 9ish (in the living room), but then I wake him when I go back to bed around midnight and change him. Then, we get in the bed (we co-sleep) and he nurses for a few minutes until he goes to sleep. Then, he usually doesn't wake until 6 or 7 and he nurses and sleeps with me until I get up.
Do you have a set bed time?
Nope. DD is in bed by 8:30 - 9ish, so I imagine it will fall somewhere around there, but it will be a while before it will be 'set'.
Is baby falling on any type of routine?
Yes, he is starting to, luckily. He wants to cluster feed for a couple hours in the morning and then is usually down for a good nap around 11ish. He then sleeps until 2 or 3 and then is in a good wake period until dinner time. Of course, he feeds a couple times during that time. Then, he wants to cluster feed until he goes to bed. So, it seems like he is eating more during the day and sleeping more at night, which is wonderful!
How often does your baby eat? BF or BF?
BF. He cluster feeds a lot during the day and I feed on demand. Probably around every couple of hours during the day and every 4-5 at night. Last night, though, was the exception and he fed every 2-3. I think he might be about to be going through a growth spurt?
How often does your baby soil his or her diapers?
A lot! At least 3-4 times per day.
How long does s/he sleep at night? 4-5 hrs then she eats and goes another 3 or so and eats again.
Do you have a set bed time? Not really. She is usually asleep by 8:30 or so but doesn't get laid down until 9:30 then sleeps, as mentioned above.
Is baby falling on any type of routine? Seems to be. She is awake from around 8 am to 11 am then she sleeps until she wakes up to eat then she sleeps again, eats, is awake for 2-3 hours then eats/sleeps. . .
How often does your baby eat? BF or FF? BF - during the day 3 hours & @ night 4 hours or so
How often does your baby soil his or her diapers? 1x every other day - sometimes 1x per day
