    Default Sleep, feed, play, sleep routine

    I sometimes fed DD two hourly as I knew she wouldn't sleep again without milk. She wasn't hungry particularly but it often meant the next sleep was a longer one

    My boy (now 3 months) used to feed to sleep during the day - routine was eat/sleep/poo and repeat... - but has only in the last few weeks slowly switched to a feed/play/sleep routine by himself ("read your baby not a book") and the pattern is repeated roughly every TWO hours, and I guess that's because we have hot 30+ degrees celsius days now. I wouldn't want to go three hours in this heat without a drink. So as others have said, do what works for you and your baby. We are all wonderfully different!

    Default Re: Sleep, feed, play, sleep routine

    We do feed, play, feed, sleep too. The reason for feed play sleep was to not create a sleep association with feeding to sleep, so that the 4 month sleep regression doesn't hit as hard. But it took us months and months of catnapping before we realised she was perpetually overttired (and cranky) as we were forcing her to sleep when she was hungry and therefore woke up after 40 minutes due to hunger.

    Just make sure that if you do feed, play, feed sleep that bub is awake when putting him down to sleep and either leave him to fall asleep on his own, if he candor this or sit with him and sit next to him and pat his tummy and sssssshush him to sleep.
