Is your LO on a schedule yet? What time to you put them to bed at night?
My LO has been going to bed around 9:30 or 10 pm. Not sure if bedtime should be earlier, but this seems to be when she gets tired. She wakes up around 7am.
As for naps, I wish she would get on a consistent schedule because I can't get anything done around the house! It seems that she takes a morning nap around 9 or 10 am but sometimes it only lasts 20 min, other times it might be an hour. The after noon is all over the place, usually 1/2 hour or less cat naps around lunch time & 3:00. Once in a while she surprises me with a 2-3 late afternoon nap but that is rare.
Usually Adalyn goes down between 7-8pm, but she's been waking up after 45ish minutes and sometimes going back to sleep, sometimes not, so I am playing with her schedule a little. We're usually up by 8am. By 10 she is ready for a nap, but it's usually only 30-45 minutes. Then around 1 is another nap time for another 30ish minutes. There's usually at least one more nap in there, sometimes as long as an hour and a half but usually only if it's on me. =/ Occasionally there'll be another 30 min nap there.
It drives me nuts. Most her naps are on me because by the time I lay her down upstairs, come down, take a moment to myself and then get into groove of cleaning or w/e - She's awake. And it just frustrates me. So I keep her on me.
Bedtime between 6-8, it was on the 8 side, but now she's gravitating to the 6 side. Usually up for the day at 630. Naps have very little consistency, she's usually ready for one by 11, but will sometimes go for 15 minutes or 2 hours (only in her swing or on me are they that long). She usually takes a catnap around 3 too, again..maybe 15 minutes.
In bed between 7-8. Usually one or two wake ups for food and diaper. Up at 6-7. She is doing the 3-4-5 nap thing only it tends to be more 2-3-4 or 3-3-4. Her naps are not usually very long unless they are on me or in her swing. In her bed I get about 20 min. usually.
Pippa goes to bed between 8:00 and 10:00 p.m.- whenever she falls asleep nursing. She stays asleep until I get her out of bed at 6:00 a.m. on weekdays. On weekends, she will sleep 12 hours if I let her. If I get tired of pumping or I'm concerned her diaper is getting full, I will wake her.
She is not a big napper for the sitter or for me. Generally she will take one mid-morning nap for the sitter.
He's a pretty inconsistent napper during the day, but he very consistently goes to bed between 8-9pm and wakes up at 6am almost on the dot! He does wake up several times throughout the night, but he quickly goes back to sleep after nursing.
We've gone all over the place lately. I think he's either teething or not feeling well. He's been going to bed later, after 10pm, getting up anywhere between 5-7 eat, go back to bed for another few hours, then naps throughout the day. I never know if it's going to be a cat nap or a long one.
❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤
