Routines question

Hi ladies!

Question: Anyone else having trouble maintaining a good sleep/eat routine? DH is back to work today (YAY) so I think we should be able to get a routine going now. I'm hoping a nap between 10-12 and 2-4 and then sleep for the night at 7. DD was so much easier to have on a routine. By 4 weeks old she was a 7-6 sleeper. I'm so tired!! Smile

Anyone have any tips, experience or just stories to share on this topic??

I've had a hard time getting C on a good schedule also. He doesn't seem to be on a very good 24 hr schedule. He wakes up in the morning around 8 (give or take an hour) and is awake for an hour and then back to sleep for 2-3 hours. Then he is usually up for another 1-1.5 hrs and then back to sleep for another couple hours. Late afternoon and early evening is where things get tricky. He does best if he goes to bed around 7-8. Well he ends up being super tired around 5:30. No way he can stay up till 7 but if I put him down for a nap then he would sleep all night... So we haven't quite gotten the hang of that time yet. He is still a huge sleeper though. He hasn't really gotten onto a morning nap/afternoon nap type schedule yet... even though he is 4.5 months old.

Interested to see what everyone else's schedules are! Smile

Going to daycare has helped a lot here. She usually naps from 9-11 and then from 1-3:30 and then a little catnap sometimes in the late afternoon and then bed around 8. We are having trouble lately getting her to sleep through the night again though. Sad

Well, I'm probably jinxing this by replying but she wakes up between 7:30-8:30, naps around 10, 1, and 5 - her naps are about an hour to hour and a half and then she's down for the night around 8-830. The problem we're having right now is that last night she was up every three hours on the dot. I'm thinking growth spurt because she eats everytime and not just I need a little nosh to get back to sleep - she is full on nursing every time. Hopefully that comes to a stop soon and she gives 6-8 hour stretches again!
