    Default Newborns - sleep promotes more sleep - do you agree?

    My CHN told me good day sleeps = good night sleeps and for us that is certainly true. I also never wake a sleeping baby unless necessary.

    It's so much easier to get a tired baby to sleep than an overtired one. For us, overtired in either the 3yo or 5mo results in tears and a rough time. If they are just tired, they go to sleep quite quickly and easily.

    Babies and toddlers need lots of sleep. My toddler still has a couple of hours in the afternoon and is a right grump if he misses it for some reason.

    I prefer to go with the flow and find that DD does sleep better when she is well rested. =)

    Default Newborns - sleep promotes more sleep - do you agree?

    I fed my little one in the day in a bright area and quietly at night in a dimly lit room.

    I also had a routine from day 1 coming home from hospital, during the evening she got a bath while she was up for a feed.

    This seemed to help as it was only a few weeks til she was sleeping 5-6 hours for her first evening sleep then 4 hrs for her second sleep, waking at about 7am.

    She seemed to work out the difference from day and night quickly and was never awake at bizarre hours of the night. She was breast fed.

    I also agree with PPers. The more they sleep, the better they sleep.
    Putting an overtired baby to sleep is a form of torture in my house.

    My dd slept more the more she slept. I wasn't ever inclined to try and keep her awake but if something woke her too soon she wouldn't go back to sleep for 3 hours and being overtired and grumpy did not help her sleep better.

    As a baby yes, sleep begets sleep.

    As a toddler, no, I limit DS' naps and find he sleeps best at night when he's only had a short day sleep.

    My DS is the same, bedtime went from 11pm to 7pm at 27 months when I stopped him having day sleeps.

    I found at about 7 months there was a change: before if bub didn't get enough sleep in the day he'd be tired and cranky and had trouble going to bed at 7. Now if he gets any more than 2 hours sleep in the day he will fight bed at 7.

    Yes I do, I believe sleep breeds sleep. It has worked for my 3.
