View Full Version : 2 up - 2 down
Hi - DS is 7 months old and I am currently working oon the routine of about 2-2.5 hours up and 2 down ( although it is usually only 40 mins - except morning sleep 1.5-2)
so basically wakes at 6ish - back to bed at 8:30ish ( or by tired signs - doesn't usually last lonog in momrning )sleeps for 1-1.5hrs
eats play etc in between then around 12:30sih - 40min nap
eat play etc
4ish - 40min nap then up till bedtime at 6:30 - 7ish
I have tried letting him skip the 4pm nap - but he is beside himself by 6:30ish.
At 7 months should I be keeping him up for longer?? Is 3 naps a day too many at this age or too little???
My DS is almost 7 months old and is doing much the same as your bub! Generally 3 sleeps a day, usually the morning is 1.5hrs and then a nap at lunch about 30mins and another 30mins in the afternoon. He's down for the night at around 6ish and then sleeps until 6ish, waking up for 1 feed around 3ish which we are trying to cut out.
I have found that Andrew is ropable in the early evening if he hasn't had his afternoon sleep, so we persist with trying to get him down for that sleep. Even if he doesn't sleep, I try to get him happy enough in his cot to at least have some quiet time in there.
thanks nicole! Are you giving your little one 3 meals of solids? and if so - whats the rough timing of them if you dont mind me asking? :)
Yep, he is having 3 solids most days. Generally it is about half an hour to an hour after a BF. So roughly 10.30, 2.30 and then before his bath at around 5.30.
How about you?
Similar scenario! Hour or so after a feed.
6 - milkfeed - 7:30ish solids ( not to interested in this one at the moment - but I try!)
11ish milk - 12ish lunch
2:30ish milk - 3:30ish avo tea
6-6:30 milk - then have just started offering him some din dins - but think I will move avo tea forward and make that dinner instead - as a little concerned about sending him to bed staright after a big feed
Its all such trial and error!! ;) and changes all the time ! :)
Hmm tell me about it! Our routine changes every couple of days I'm sure...
The only thing i really try to stick to every day is the 6,10,2,6 BF. Sleep and solids are a bit more erratic - some days he wants solids after a BF, sometimes he wants to sleep! I try not to get too hung up on it or I go crazy!
He's been driving me nuts this week with his feeding. Yesterday I was seriously ready to give up BF, but wouldn't you know it...today he has been an angel!!! I guess he really doesn't want formula! LOL
