How are the nights going? Just fine!
How long is baby sleeping? About 8-9 hours a night.
How often is baby feeding at night? None. We put him down at 9 and we wake him to eat before we all head off to work/take him to the sitter.
Where does baby sleep at night? His crib
What does baby wear to bed? (Clothes, blankets..?) Cotton sleep & plays. Still swaddling him.
How much sleep is mommy getting? That's a different story. I should go to bed after I put him down, but I never do. I'd say about 5 hours a night during the week but on the weekends DH lets me catch up and sleep in both days.

How are the nights going?

Excellent. On a bad night she is fussy and wants to be held till about 11pm ish and will only sleep till 4am. But most nights she is down around 10pm and up between 5:30-6:45am

How long is baby sleeping?

She's a great little sleeper. She does about a 7-8 hour stretch

How often is baby feeding at night?

Just a 4oz bottle before bed and a 4oz bottle when she wakes up. She is pretty much ready to chow by the time she wakes up.

Where does baby sleep at night?

She sleeps in her crib. I wanted her to sleep in a pack n'play in our room until she was older, but the first three nights home were terrible and she wouldn't sleep anywhere. Finally we put her in the crib and she slept for a 3 hour stretch her first time!

What does baby wear to bed? (Clothes, blankets..?)

She wears either a sleeper sack thing or a zip up footed jammie thing. Then we do a tight swaddle in a soft blanket (Aden & Anis) and put her in her crib which is fitted with a Camoise PBK sheet.

How much sleep is mommy getting?

Depending on when I fall asleep I average 6-8 hours a night so I really can't complain (although I usually wish I could nap during the early afternoon if she has a fussy day, but yes it could totally TOTALLY be worse)

I am jealous of many of you ladies!!!

How are the nights going? Annoying. He doesn't go down before 12-1 most nights. Yes, we've tried everything.
How long is baby sleeping? Once he goes down, he sleeps fine, in 3-5 hour stretches.
How often is baby feeding at night? Once he is down, he wakes up about 3-4 hours later, so usually just once.
Where does baby sleep at night? In his bassinet/cot next to our bed.
What does baby wear to bed? (Clothes, blankets..?) Either a footed sleeper, a gown (he's getting long for some of his footies), and usually a sleep sack swaddle (with his arms out) on top of that. It's getting really warm here though, so we'll have to probably start to adjust.
How much sleep is mommy getting? Usually from about 11-2, then about 4-7. So, call it 5 hours broken sleep.

How are the nights going? getting better

How long is baby sleeping? it depends, she usually has her last bottle for the night around 10/11pm, might wake around 4am for a bottle but sometimes will go until5/5:30am.

How often is baby feeding at night? one late night bottle and maybe one more bottle but sometimes she sleeps through


Where does baby sleep at night? we just transitioned her to the crib and her night time sleep hasn't changed so that was easy.

What does baby wear to bed? (Clothes, blankets..?) well, we live in NJ so it is still cold here. Her room does get quite chilly at night, so depending on the temp, she will either wear a cotton sleeper or a lighter sleeper), if it is not too cold that she sleeps with a receiving blanket, if it is cold (like last night) then she will sleep with a cotton blanket (i know....i am not supposed to do this

How much sleep is mommy getting? I sleep when she is sleeping so if she wakes once then I wake to feed her and then go right back to sleep.

Karin, bax sounds like my daughter when she was a baby. I could never get her down before11-2am! I think some kids are just on different schedules. Eventually she would start going down at 10pm. Bit hinestly she has always been a night girl. The good side is that she has always been the kid that eill sleep in till 8-9am which has made all my friends jealous, so it is kind of a trade off!

How are the nights going? Awesome!

How long is baby sleeping? He varies from 7-9 hours. If he wakes us for a bottle he goes right back down till it's time to leave for the day

How often is baby feeding at night? 1 - 2 times

Where does baby sleep at night? In his crib, for a week now

What does baby wear to bed? (Clothes, blankets..?) Well it's been warm here so he's either in a gown or a onesie then arms swaddled with a muslin blanket. I try to cover his feet with a blanket, they get cold, but no mater what he ALWAYS kicks it off

How much sleep is mommy getting? Same as baby! It's nice that he's only getting up once or twice now.

How are the nights going? Not great. He still wakes up around 3am and then is fussy on and off for the rest of the night. I don't know how I'm not a total zombie. He has been doing a teeny bit better the past few nights, at least it's not as bad as the nights where he'd only doze 5-10 minutes and then cry, then repeat from 3-8.
How long is baby sleeping? He sometimes will sleep a 4 hour stretch, usually it's a couple of hours at a time.

How often is baby feeding at night? 3 or 4 times probably

Where does baby sleep at night? Next to me

What does baby wear to bed? (Clothes, blankets..?) Usually something long sleeved (it's been unnaturally cold here) and lots of warm snuggly blankets.

How much sleep is mommy getting? Hah! Maybe 5 hours of broken sleep? Not sure.
