Well it is 8:30 here and he is still sleeping (or again). He slept 7 hours last night (first time that long - longest has only been 5) though (so I slept like 6. - watching a lifetime movie and you can't just turn those off lol) but he nursed at 5:45 went back to sleep until 8 and nursed again. Now he is sleeping again.
Can't remember when she went to sleep last night but I went to sleep about 1ish and then she woke up at about 6ish I brought her to bed to nurse and then we both went back to sleep until my alarm went off for me to get up at 7:30.
She got up for the day at 6 am. How do you get your babies to sleep in later than that? I got about six hours of broken sleep last night.
Babies are just all different. L won't go down for the night until 11pm at least. He sleeps from 9-10 but won't nurse back to sleep at 10 he wants to be wide awake and play for 1-2 hours. Some of the other babies I see going to bed at 9 for the night. You just have to play around with bedtimes. L also sleeps much better after a lavender bath.. We use real essential oils not J&J. He also sleeps much better on top of me. If I put him in his PNP then he's very noisy and squirms all around and barely sleeps.
I hear ya! I tried doing it with Grace, and I could NEVER make myself get up to pump. But this time around, it seems like my boobs won't let me sleep more than 4 hours or so. But it a way, it's a good thing. It's been a lot better for keeping my supply up. And now that we're nearly to 4 months, she's back to not STTN, so I'm up anyway.
Are you pumping for your little one? Planning to pump?
