Momma's: How are your little ones sleeping? How long do they sleep?
Christian is by far my best baby yet. He sleeps around 2 hours at a time during the day and at night I usually get atleast one 3 hour stretch of sleep. Both my other 2 boys were terrible sleepers and the first few weeks were terrible but Christian has been a good sleeper so far. Hoping it stays that way.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
Bella is fantastic. I have to WAKE her for every feeding! Every 2-3 hours I change her to get her woken up, then she eats, poops, and is right back to sleep! She barely fusses, and if I didn't set alarms to get us both up, I think she would sleep through the night! I on the other hand haven't been sleeping much. It is hard for me to nap during the day when she is, even though I am exhausted.

My girls were sleeping great when I had Melody in a mamaroo, and Ashley in a sleep n play. But now I've switched them to a pack n play instead because it's safer, and it's been a rough transition. I know they would most likely be fine in what they were sleeping in, but Melody is still so little and her head never looks like it's positioned right.
Also what really scared us was that when I was in the shower, my mom was in kitchen and heard Melody (in the mamaroo) cry. My mom went to check on her, and she was choking on spit up. If she's been flat on her back she would've been able to turn her head and not choke.
DH is out of town for another week, so my mom has been staying with me to help. She sleeps on the couch with Ashley in the pack n play, and I'm upstairs with Melody in the other pack n play (which a neighbor gave to us ) Last night, Melody would be fine, then fuss, then cry. Then I'd soothe her and lay her back down, and 5-10 mins later it would start all over again. Thank goodness she fell asleep after her 4am feeding for a bit so I got some sleep. And my mom slept well because Ashley did well so I got a good nap in.
At least it will be an easier transition when they eventually go to their cribs lol.
DD is an excellent sleeper like her big brother. She eats about every 2-3 hours during the day but every 4 hours during the night. I feed her on demand instead of putting her on a schedule. I did DS the same way. She's an easy, relaxed baby and I can definitely tell she's already a daddy's girl!! Makes my heart swell.
DH, DS and I are getting plenty of sleep as well. It's only me that gets up with DD during the night, which is fine.

Romen is a lovely sleeper . He eats every 2-3 hours during the day, and most nights sleeps for a good 5-6 hour stretch. Every couple of nights, he will wake every 2 hours, and when those nights come its rough because I get used to those longer stretches. But, we get through them and it's fine. I can't really complain because he's such a great sleeper otherwise.
