I'm not overly anxious about DD 6 weeks not having a routine but I am wondering what general pattern of sleep other babies similar in she to mine are doing regarding sleep. Our day goes something roughly like this;
6am feed and fall asleep
9 feed on and off and doze in mums arms until about 11.30am where she'll have one last big feed and fall asleep by 12pm
2.30- 3pm (on a good day) awake and feed
Then from 3pm everything goes down hill. She feeds on and off and dozes only.
It's now 8.50pm and I've only just settled her enough to feed properly.
It seems to me she feeds only a little and not enough to sustain her for the sleep she needs but in the mornings she takes in a lot and can sleep. There's plenty of milk there for her.
Over night she wakes 2-3 hourly.
What should I focus on to get her sleeping so she isn't cranky.
So many nights she's so tired she is trying to feed but whimpers and fusses from what I think is over tiredness.
Advice, help, what does your day look like?
