I have a very active, very happy, very alert 4mo and I just wanted to see whether anyone has been in similar situations and things have improved naturally (or if you've had to implement 'training' something I'm not so keen on).
My DS sleeps pretty well at night, waking 1-2times between 7pm-7am (although has been a bit restless the last week but that's a question for another time! I suspect it may be a growth spurt or dreaded sleep regression that everyone talks about) but during the day he only sleeps 45ish minutes. I'm sure part of the reason is because he is unable to self settle/resettle (he is rocked or fed to sleep). Generally he had 4 x 45min naps per day and is up roughly between 1.5-2hours. I find stretching out his wake times makes him a little bit more sleepy and easier to settle as he is so alert.
Following on from that, because he is fed to sleep, generally out routine is Play, Feed, Sleep. I know this isn't ideal, but at the moment it works. He can be such a restless feeder that unless he's a little bit tired he just isn't interested, would rather look around! He also has reflux which is pretty much under control but I suspect this may also add to his restlessness which feeding.
When I do feed him to sleep I try to catch him right before he falls asleep, or burp him which can slightly wake him before putting him down.
Any experiences, positive or negative would be much appreciated
