Sleeping through the night or not?
What time is the last feeding?
How does your LO fall asleep for the night?
well okay she is sleeping 7 hours at night but not within the hours i want. she always falls asleep at 7 and sleep til 2. has a feeding then she'll sleep til 6.
I want her to go down at 10 and sleep til 6.
the passed few nights ive put her down in that swing at 7 when she fell asleep and i lay on the couch with the idea that id get her up at 10 and let her eat so she'll go back to sleep til 6am... but i cant seem to stay awake... lol
im trying to switch her schedule around to get it the way i want it but she has her own ideas of how this works.
How are your babies sleeping these days... He's doing amazing!
Sleeping through the night or not? He has been since he was a month and a half old. I'm so lucky.
What time is the last feeding? 7:00
How does your LO fall asleep for the night? We start getting his bath ready at 6:30 every night, and after his bath, he gets lotion, and his hair dryed (he loooves the hair dryer!), and gets his pajamas on. Then I usually read a short dr seuss book to him and feed him. Then he lays in the crib and I turn on the mobile and usually he is asleep by the time the music ends, and he wakes up at around 9 or so the next morning.
Sleeping through the night or not? Yes ma'am!
What time is the last feeding? Between 7:30 and 9
How does your LO fall asleep for the night? Just chilling in his sleep sack, usually cooing...5 mins later, buy bye Pax! I just kiss him goodnight and leave and watch him/listen to him coo on the monitor LOL!
Sleeping through the night or not? Psh I wish!! She like is not a normal baby lol. When she was a newborn she slept so great! Went down at 10PM, woke up 3AM, woke up 6Am and finally at 8Am she was up for the day.. BUT since she was 3 months old she is up ALL THE TIME! Goes down now about 8-830PM. Is up either at 1030PM or 11PM. Then back up at 1Am or 2AM. Then again back up around 4Am or 5AM. And up for the day between 7 and 8Am. Its insanely tiring. I thought the older they got the better they slept! My baby didnt get the memo.
What time is the last feeding? 7PM or 8PM depending on her schedule during day. She still only eats 3oz sometimes I can get 4oz down her. Every 2-3 hours. Ugh.
How does your LO fall asleep for the night? Swaddle. Currently weaning from swaddle so one arm out. Rocking her. When shes almost asleep I lay her in her crib. And then her first wake up around 10:30 or 11PM I put her in bed with me since its just easier to get to her that way since shes up all the time at night.
NOt STTN. SHe went from 10:30 to 4:30 last night but most nights she's been up every hour to 2 hours lately. It's killing me. I try to not nurse her to sleep and lay her down in her crib while she's sleepy. My husband likes to rock her to sleep since he doesn't get to see her much. I love him spending time with her, but I don't want her to become reliant on rocking either.
Thank you peimum for my siggie

Sleeping through the night or not? Well, I guess, 8 hours is considered STTN right? That is not every night, but many nights lately...last night though, she woke up at 11:30 after going to bed at 8:30, she needed more food (growth spurt?)
What time is the last feeding? Usually around 7:30/8
How does your LO fall asleep for the night? I have to rock her, unless she falls asleep having her last bottle...I need to start trying to put her down before she is completely asleep, but I still think she is a little young for that, perhaps in a couple of weeks we can start that!
Sleeping through the night or not? once - one blissful evening last week I went to bed at 10 and was not awoken until 6 and then she went back until 7:30, it was Glorious. lol anyway, we finally have a monkey that is up once to eat and another time just needing to be soothed, I'm happy, she's happy DH can suck it up (he want's STTN)
What time is the last feeding? 8pm, then again somewhere between 2am and 4am, she often wakes around 12 but just needs a shhh and a soother and will settle herself back down
How does your LO fall asleep for the night? Full blown bed-time routine, book, prayer, song, swaddle, pop her down awake and she's out in 5 minutes, usually no tears, sometimes she'll fuss a bit but never long
Adler gets sleepy around 7:30 every night. I nurse him, lay him down sleepy or sleeping in the crib where he sleeps till 2 am then he comes to bed with me till everyone gets up about 7 am. He nurses once or twice during that morning part, I like those morning snuggles.
Mine does. I give her her last feeding around 9pm and then rock her to sleep. I still swaddle her as well. I want to try letting her sleep without being swaddled, but I'm too afraid to face a potentially sleepless night if she keeps waking herself up. In the morning I usually get up around 7-8am.

I was scared to stop swaddling too for the same reason, but it turned out just fine. Some people kind of transistion them out of it, starting with one arm out for awhile, then both, then no swaddling. Maybe try that?
