he does 40min sleep cycles sometimes less which i know is normal for a baby this age. Even when i baby wear him he wakes after 40mins, i walk around a bit rocking him and he goes back to sleep for another 40mins.
I keep him up long enough (1-1.5hr max including feed time) and i comfort feed him to sleep and always start his sleeps in his bassenette. When he wakes i find it easier to baby wear him for another sleep cycle as i was spending 2hrs re-settling him bak to sleep with no success.
When dd has her nap after lunch, ds is also due for a sleep and will start off in bassenette but only long enough for me to grab a bite to eat then i bring him to bed with me so i get a rest. He feeds and dozes on and off for 3 hrs. it's actually my favourite part of the day and i look forward to it.
Problem is, dh thinks im starting bad habbits with him. (can that even happen at 9weeks old??) ive got the rest of his life to drill routines in?!?!
I think he's a typical breastfed baby and im just trying to meet his needs. To be honest, he's out last baby and i actually enjoy wearing him and having him close to me, bringing him into our bed when he wakes too early in the mornings for milky snuggles.
But i guess the little cat naps during the day are an issue that i need to address. i have a 2yr old who needs me also and spending half my time re-settling is just not an option.
So what should i be doing to get my little man sleeping a decent hour or two during the day for his sleeps? He was great sleeper, but seems to have gone off the rails a bit since. (my fault?!)
He feeds 2hrly, i follow a routine for him as best i can with a 2yr old! He's ok at night once he's asleep after 2-3hrs of re-settling/comfort feeding and wakes just once, last night he slept 9pm-6am.
