What is your LO's sleep pattern? When are they awake/asleep? How long do they sleep?
Trystan is awake in the mornings, from about 7AM to 11 or 12PM. Then he'll periodically nap for an hour or two before he wants to eat. He's definitely more hungry in the evenings... like last night, I swear he ate every hour from 3PM when I got home from work until 11PM when he FINALLY went to sleep! It's like he couldn't get enough! Then he was up at 2:30AM, and then again at 5:30AM! I'm so tired I don't know what to do with myself... because of course I had to be here to work at 8AM! And like I said, it's not like I can nap when I get home because he won't get off the boob long enough for me to!
Andrew doesn't really have a schedule yet. But generally he eats every three hours except for the 4-5 hr stretch from 7or8 pm to 1 or2 am then it's back to every 3hrs. Of course I'm kind of a night owl so I usually dont get to bed until midnight so my nights are rough. :/ if I could just go to sleep by ten then I think I'd feel more rested. He will stay alert for about an hour during the day after eating then he naps until the next feeding. So no schedule but a pattern for sure.
Evelyn sleeps most of the day and wakes to feed about every 2-3 hours. Sometimes when we are traveling or if there is a lot of commotion she will sleep for longer stretches. When she wakes to eat she literally falls right back to sleep. Around dinner time, she usually wakes up and wants to cluster feed all evening. If I am the one holding her, she wants to be on the breast the whole time. Makes it hard to get dinner ready. Sometimes I put her in the Moby wrap so I can get things done. She usually doesn't fall asleep for a long stretch until about 12 or 1 am. I will set myself up in the TV room with her and watch a movie or something while she eats. She falls asleep in my arms, but as soon as I try to put her in the bassinet, she wakes up and she's fussy. Once I finally get her down, she will wake up around 3:30am and again around 6:30 am. Right now it's not too bad because she sleeps in the morning and I can sleep in with her, but I am really worried about how I will make it when I go back to work. I hope her sleep habits change between now and then!
Elaina typically wakes for good around 6:30-7:30am. She will usually be coaxed into a nap if I cosleep with her around 11am or noon. Then she's up all afternoon unless I take her out in the car/stroller/ergo, those put her to sleep. She will usually start going down for 2-3 hour stretches around 6-7pm but that can really vary. She will wake again for a bit at some point in the evening, then by 11pm I give her a really good feed and she will sleep 3-4 hours, wake for a feed between 2-3am, sleep for another 1.5 or 2 hours, feed again around 5am sometimes I think, and sleep again just a bit before the day starts again.
We get up between 7 and 8. Rory is awake while I get Evan up, dressed, we sit down for Evan to eat bfast Rory nurses and I pump. Then 8:30-9 he will usually take about 45 minutes in his swing (gives me time to drink some coffee Mmm). Then from there on it's kind of nursing and napping until about 4 when he wakes up. He's usually happy 4-6 and at 6 his fussy evening thing kicks in and he crabs, cries, nurses, dozes and cries some more until around 10 when I can usually get him down for the night. I'm reallllllly looking forward to him getting through the evening fussy thing. Typically he goes 10-2, then like 4:30 and then I put him in bed with me until Evan gets up. THe last 2 nights I couldn't get him down until 11:30 but he did go until 4:30 both nights, a trade off
Emily eats every 2 hours except maybe a 3 hr stretch from 10pm-1am. Sometimes she is awake between feedings and sometimes not but there really isnt much of a pattern yet.
Almost the same as us! Jonah eats like a piggy from 5-10pm. Still up 1-2 times to eat again.
