We had a good run recently of sleeping from 9 pm - 4 am. I want to say it was at least 4-5 days. I guess I got spoiled and thought we were out of the woods. Now we're back to waking 3 times a night to feed?? Man that's frustrating! Last night she fed right before bed around 8:30 pm, 12:15 am, 4 am, then 6:30 am.

Anyone else experience a sleep regression?

Yep! We had 4 days of her sleeping 10 to 5...now we're back to her waking at least twice (we still get the initial block of 4 to 5 hours, then she's up in 2 or 3 again).

Man, it was nice while it lasted!

Hmmm....I'm still waiting to see "sleep progression" here. She has never stopped waking twice a night to feed, and then staying up (or trying to) after each feed for up to 2 hrs. I think we had 2 nights in a row a week and a half ago that she actually went right back to sleep after eating....but now she's back to wanting to stay up and play in the middle of the night. VERY FRUSTRATING almost 8 weeks in.

We're 10 weeks in. Is there a growth spurt around this time?

No regression here because we haven't really made any progression. Haha. Although he has been fussier in the early morning hours and harder to get back to sleep from around 4-5am on. We've been getting up around 6am lately.

It could be sleep regression. Your baby might be slowly transitioning from long periods of deep sleep, to alternating periods of light and deep sleep. This change can cause her to wake up during a light sleep period.

However, there are various factors which can affect a baby's sleep and getting these right can really help. One of the main ones is the number of feeds per day. If you feed a baby too often in the first few weeks, she can develop a habit, which can affect her sleeping pattern for many weeks afterwards.

We still have bad nights waking every hour or two every once in a while, but for the most part Avery sleeps from about 730-10, eats then sleeps about 1030-4, eats again then sleeps from 430-730. It could be better, but I'm pretty happy with it.

I don't believe you can feed a baby too often in the first few weeks - you are supposed to feed on demand.

Misty - that was similar to my son's schedule when he was little. I can't get Lexi down before 9 pm, though. So frustrating. Part of it may be that she takes an hour nap from 6-7 pm usually. I bet if I kept her up and stimulated her, she would be tired come 7:30 pm. But, I like that she naps then so we can have family dinner during that time.

Misty - I'm envious of that schedule! I WISH Lilah was on that schedule!

Yeah she started trying to go to sleep at 6ish this past week, so I just started bathing her around 630. She stays in the bath a good 30 minutes each time playing. Then she gets lotioned all over and night clothes and nurses to sleep. We started that routine early on purpose. Now, it doesn't matter if she ate before bathing, she insists on eating and sleeping after it. I love it. As far as dinner, she usually just sits at the table with us. I'll sit her on my leg facing the table and she just watches everyone eating. It's pretty funny.

I agree that you can't feed a baby too often when they're little. I could never see delaying a newborn's feeding just so Mom could try to get more sleep at night. That's not good parenting. If they're hungry, feed them!

Grady had a regression a couple weeks ago. He was giving me 5 hours for his first stretch and went back down to three for a while. The past 3 nights he has gone 6 hours 8pm-2am. I hope he keeps it going!!! After that he's up at 4 and 7am.

Also, I believe the more they fuel up during the day the less they'll need at night.

We've had regression here, too. I got super spoiled with a few nights of 8+ hours and last night we were back to 4! But I'm not complaining, lest I be hit with a tomato.

Yup that seems to hold true for Kody too!

I thought I was winning with the sleep! He was sleeping until 12 am and then 4 am and then sleeping again a bit longer. BUT now he is back to feeding every 3 hours day and night and sometimes not even lasting that long. Its like having a newborn again... at 9 weeks old! Shouldn't this get easier soon?????

With all you've gone through with Kody already, I would let you throw one. You're entitled!
