I've started DS2 on Save our sleep routine in the last week and am having trouble keeping him up for the awake times.
He is 7 weeks old, bf'd, full term about 5.5kg now.
We are following the 4-6 week old routine so the awake times are 1hr 15 to 1.5hrs, which don't seem that long but starts looking for a sleep before the hour mark and I'm scared to stretch him too much as he is more difficult to settle if overtired.
He self settles fine (if not overtired) but often needs a little bit of help to resettle before the next feed, but then I almost always have to wake him for the next feed!
He's not having any trouble lasting between feeds (if he wakes before feed time resettles easily and doesn't seem hungry).
Should I try moving him back a routine so the awake time is shorter, or should I continue with this routine put him down for sleep when he shows tired signs, or try to stretch him out to the time of the next sleep per the book?
