.... to an almost 8 month old
how long did it take you to go from go with the flow to more sleep for bubs?
until now we've been a go with the flow with naps and routine. she sorted out her own sleep and nap times.
She used to sleep so well at night and in her own cot which is in our room.
Since she started teething she starts off in her cot but once dh and I turn off our bedside lamps it doesn't take long for her to end up on our bed where she'll stay until she wakes up.
her daytime naps normally consist of a 40-50 minute nap about an hour and a half after she wakes up
when she wakes up we play. when she shows her sleepy signs we feed to sleep
then another 40 or so minute nap around 4/5 depending on her wake up time.
She used to have a 1.5 - 2 hour nap then awake and play until just recently but I suspect her top teeth are making a move.
she isn't getting good quality sleep at night and has bags under her eyes
Is it worth trying to get her into a more full on routine whilst she is going through the teething/ separation anxiety phase?
dh and I won't be using CIO or cc
