    I have tried keeping Will awake between 5-7pm but he just can't last. He is awake now and will last till about 5.30-6. Does anyone have any ideas how to extend their awake time while keeping then happy. And do you think it will make any difference with night sleep?

    I'm at a bit of a loss last night and today...bubs has really not slept much at all...last significant sleep was 2 hrs 40 which he woke up from at 3.30am this morning and he's mostly been sleeping in 1 hour blocks since then. At the moment I'm desperately trying to keep him on the boob - and awake - for as long as possible! Hoping he'll go down so I have enough time to eat dinner and do a few bits and bobs and still give me time to rest before he wakes!

    How's everyone's partners handling their new additions?

    How often are you bathing bubs? I think we should do it at night at least every other day but DH doesnt want to do it at night in case he gets sick from the cold!!

    I put Orlando down at ten past 6 and he was up again at 20 past!!! Argh!!

    We have been bathing every second day...I was going to bath her tonight cause she has been the most settled in ages....so I didn't want to ruin it. Not sure if it will transfer into the night but I'm hoping.ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1363606024.545363.jpgImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1363606033.986444.jpg

    I have attached a couple of pics...one of Ivy sleeping soundly on top of our Bec and one just after I gave birth.

    Dragon that's a tough one, does he look distressed when awake? If do keeping him up will likely not work according to all the advice I have been given as they say don't over stimulate, if bubs is happy to be awake and is content then it's ok, but if they are not then its not a good idea as it won't make them sleep better later, if anything I think it might make them sleep worse.

    Honestly why don't these bubba's come with a manual!!!

    I bath every 2nd night and I make sure all doors and windows are closed to ensure its warm so bub isn't cold on the nights I don't bath I still use warm washers and I wash her down from top to tail it just helps sooth her then I feed and wind her the bed.
    Tonight we did the bath then feed at 6pm and she's still asleep should wake at 10pm so that's 4hrs.
    One happy mummy

    I don't know If I have thrush, I Feel a little thrush like downstairs but not convinced as it just generally feels a bit yuk down there with the ongoing period etc...ill see how I feel tomorrow. Don't have nipple pain and can't see signs of it in Ivy's mouth but I'm aware that I should look out for it.

    Ivy has been sleeping well since approx 3pm although sometimes she will wake herself in a massive scream, I then just pat her and stroke her head and she goes back to sleep...it's like she has a horrible dream or something!

    I hope we all get at least 2 hour sleeps tonight!
