Does anyone have any advice on what I should be doing regarding the sleep routine of my 5 week old.
Currently she has a usual pattern of going to bed around 9-10pm, waking 1-2am, 4-5am, then up at 8am; she feeds well at night and goes straight back to sleep when in this pattern. She usually has 2-3 naps during the day.
However sometimes her day time sleep is disrupted, either something wakes her or we are out or whatever. Then she may miss a day time nap, and then sleeps later, sometimes up to and through her bedtime.
e.g, today we were out at a work xmas party and she didn't sleep until we got home at 4pm, she is still asleep now at 7pm. Going by past history if I leave her she could sleep till 8 or 9pm.
Question is, should I wake her to help keep to the routine, or just let her sleep as she wants?
this made more sense in my head than it does written out!
