    Default Would u wake THIS sleeping baby?

    Not sure where to put this, but here goes...

    Ds2 is 8 weeks on Monday, for the past 2-3 weeks he has refused to sleep in the afternons, from round 2:30pm till after 7pm....

    Today has been the first time in ages where he's fallen asleep and stayed asleep in the afternoon. He fell asleep at 4pm and now it's 6pm, should I wake him?

    I want him to go to sleep around 7pm for the night. That's his normal
    Bedtime (well that's what I generally aim for)

    WWYD? Wake him now for an hour to be out down again at 7?
    Or leave him to sleep and see what happens?

    At 8 weeks old I would not wake him, but I wouldn't be opposed to him being up late tonight

    I wouldn't wake him. He obviously needs his sleep and will wake when he's ready. The 7 pm bedtime routine may be thrown tonight, but hell find his niche eventually.

    If DH wasn't out then I wouldn't be too fussed about missing 7pm bedtime but I'm nervous about how tonight will go already

    I wouldn't wake the Bub, I find mine go down easier for the night if they are well rested. My DD woke at 6 the other night and went back to bed at 7:30 with no issues, she slept through the night

    I wouldn't wake him, he may just go to bed a tad later.

    He's only 8 weeks old, I don't think you can expect much of a sleeping routine at this early point......

    I also think saying that he refused to go to sleep is a bit unfair..... A 3 year old can refuse to sleep, a baby that's not even 2 months old can't.

    My DS is 9 weeks when he does what you've described I leave him sleep when he wakes I feed him back off to sleep again but he generally doesn't wake if he does this. I put him down at 5 yesterday normal bed time is 7.30 he slept right through had a dream feed at 10.30 then slept until 3am! I'd see how he goes I've found most babies fall into their own routines

    Thanks but I never said I was expecting him to be in a routine, I'm a 2nd time mum and although I don't know everything, I do know that there is no routine till much later...

    Also I don't think what I said was 'unfair' about refusing to sleep... Fact is I do EVERYTHING possible to try and help him to sleep during this time frame and he doesn't sleep. Fine, it's not a conscious refusal from him but I couldn't think of other words to describe what I go through every day.

    Sorry but I'm feeling pretty crappy as it is and your post didn't seem helpful to me, actually a bit blunt in my emotional overtired state...
