Ok, can you ladies tell me your nighttime sleep schedule (or no schedule) and how long it takes your LO to sleep and how long they do sleep and what have you ?

Thank you in advance

Nola takes 3 naps during the day and then falls asleep between 8-9 usually. She wakes up a gazillion times throughout the night to nurse and we wake up (me around 6:30) between 7-8.

From when she was a month or so old DD would fall asleep by 7pm every night. There was a time when it was even hard to keep her awake past 5pm (got resolved once I figured a soaked diaper was waking her up too early).

We switched to DP putting her to bed sometime around 10 or 11 months because she'd just wiggle on the boob with me. That worked for a while but then she started to really drag bedtime and it used to be a 2-3 hour ordeal every night. Seeing how it didnt seem to be a phase I decided to take charge.

Now we take turns putting her in bed. She gets her PJs, teeth brushed and then we go to the bedroom. When it is DP he lays with her for about half an hour when it is me she gets the boob for about that time. After the half an hour is up we put her in her crib and lay down next to her. If she cries or objects we reach through the bars and soothe her but try not to pick her up. She is really getting used to being in there, I was able to sit with my back turned to her the last time I was with her and when she complained I just sang a short lullabye. Bedtime has gone from an infuriating 2-3 hour affair to a more managable one hour. The idea is to move further away from the crib hopefully getting to being able to put her in there and leaving the room.

Jonah wakes up around 9:00 and takes a nap around 12:00, waking around 3:00. Sometimes, but not usually, he will have another nap around 4:00 if his other nap was earlier, or if it wasnt as long.

We have dinner around 5:30 or 6:00, then a bath if it's bath night, and around 7:30 we go into his room with dimmed lights and sing quiet songs, read books, do a little baby yoga, then I put him into his night diaper, sing him his goodnight song, and put him to bed. He falls asleep anywhere between 8:00 and 9:00, depending on how long he plays in his bed. Sometimes he wants a drink before bed, but not often anymore. The whole bedtime routine takes about an hour, but sometimes if he's really cranky we shorten it and just get him in bed.

Click the blinkies!

Thank You, Pattyandthemoos, for my beautiful siggy!

Well, we just don't go to bed until he shows certain behaviors...things I know are tell tale signs he is tired... And he is usually out in 10 mins or less...and this usually falls within the same 45-60 min window each night give or take...and he sleeps about 10-11 hrs...he naps once a day late in the afternoon for about 2-3 hrs. We cannot bathe close to bed, it stimulates him. He won't settle in for reading anymore...so we don't have a real routine...yet he seriously always goes down within that same 1 hr window without much fuss. He also asks to nurse quite often in that last 2 hrs..but typically doesn't ask once in bed.

I am a go with the flow type person. So is Matthew

He usually goes to sleep around 9-10pm and then gets up to eat every 2-3 hours at night. He doesn't actually wake up though. Just cries a little. We have started putting him in a crib next to our bed for the first stretch of time. We did have the crib as a sidecar but he started getting too mobile and I was afraid he would fall off the bed. We usually go to bed ourselves when he wakes up for that first night time feeding. He wakes up for the day anytime between 7am-9am.

He takes small (30min to 60min) naps throughout the daytime hours. Today he took a 30min nap at 10:00am, 30min nap at 2:00pm, 1hr nap at 5:00pm.

I wish he would sleep longer stretches during the day, but oh well. Someday he will
