Here I am in the sleep section.....again!
I can't get into sleep school til August. So I'm kinda trying to work things out on my own til then.
My 3mo (almost 4mo) DD2 is sleeping from 8:30pm-9:30am with two feeds in between. The first feed is 3am and it lasts 10min with no nappy change, then next feed is 6:30am and lasts 15min with a nappy change.
So she's getting about 12 and a half hours sleep over night.
Daytime. Two 40 min naps are a good day.
Yesterday she only slept about 30 mins in my arms and then a few little naps during her feeds.
She goes to bed at night after a couple of settles (we start bed time routine at about 7 so it takes 90 min to feed her/get her to sleep).
She goes straight to sleep after her night feeds without any need for settling.
I put her to bed for her morning nap yesterday. She lay in her cot for an hour, wide awake and happily talking to herself and then she starts crying so I tried to settle her but she went bananas so I got her up.
Am I struggling for her to have day naps because she sleeps so long overnight?
Should I be getting her up at 6:30am when she wakes for her 2nd feed?
I am finding that she won't have a feed when she wakes up for the day at 9:30. She won't have a feed til about 11ish which should be almost morning nap time.
Everything seems so out of whack!
Any advice would be appreciated.
Sorry about the rambling
