I was awake from 330 till 6....at 330 boobs were killing and then I waited to express as soon as I got the machine out she woke
    Grrr how annoying!! I'm yet to have my boobs wake me up because they've ways been feeding machines! Now that I'm expressing though I'm sure it will happen! How noisy are they?!

    I put Orlando to bed at 8.35am to see if I could get 2 hours out of him...he woke at 9.15 so I just went in there and put his dummy in to resettle...did that every couple of mins until about 9.30...I didn't need to pick him up and he's sleeping again...hopefully he'll stay asleep as I want to keep him in bed until 10.35! More than half way there though with no massive dramas so far! At 10.15 it would have been 3 hours since his last bottle too! Winning!

    Resettling will pay off SL, keep at it cause it ay take a few weeks, a dummy will help, Myles won't take one so that is why the comforter is great for us... I'm going to say something some of you won't like so sorry in advance... Babies do all their development when they are sleeping and really should only be awake 5-7 hours in a 24 hour period... Cat napping is generally a self settling problem in the early days, we all sleep in cycles (adults & babies ect) adults can string sleep cycles together & stay asleep, babies need to be taught how to do this... I'm only speaking from what has worked for us, I know every bub & mum is different, but Myles is much happier now that we have sorted out his cat napping :-) hope I didn't offend!

    Not offended Amy...I don't disagree with you but some babies are tougher than others to resettle. I worked on the first nap of the day and she now gets 1.5 hours most days for that nap. To settle her I had to leave her to cry as if I go in she gets too excited.

    I have slept with her comforter, even slept with her sheets, put in block out blinds and been consistent on the nap routine but I still get a catnapper. Obviously id love not to have one

    Yes Amy I've heard babies do all their development during their sleep! I managed to stretch him out to 10.30 this morning so he was down for 2 hours. Second sleep in pram...he fell asleep on our walk at about ten past 12 and I've resettled him 3 times and we're back at home and he's still in the pram. Hopefully he'll go til 2.10 at least..half an hour to go!

    Hmm Orlando has had more sleep today and seems really tired!! I guess that's the same as us when we have more sleep?? He had one sleep cycle just now, was wide awake but had him up for 15 mins having a cuddle and he started winging and now is asleep again!!! Always worry isn't there???!!!!!

    Poor baby his gums are flaring up and just wouldn't settle properly after his bottle at 6.45...ended up giving him panadol and bonjela and another bottle at 9.30...hope he stays asleep now and feels better the poor thing his cheeks are sooooo red! I wonder how long teething lasts for....hate seeing him in pain : ( I want his first tooth to break through so that at least he has something to show for it!!!!
