Can anyone shed some light on my 10 month old's routine? Our day often looks something like this:
4-5am wake up, fail at all resettling efforts, give him a bottle (240ml) and he goes back to sleep.
7:30am up for the day
9:30am Morning tea (little bit of fruit)
11:30am wake and lunch
2pm Bottle (240ml)
4pm wake and light afternoon tea
6:45 start bed time routine including 240ml bottle
7:30 in bed
When he wakes in the early morning, seriously the only way I can get him back to sleep is with a bottle. Efforts at resettling usually end up in tears from both of us. Should I then be giving him more milk in the morning at some point? I feel like 5am-2pm is a really long time between milk feeds.
The last 3 days he's taken about half an hour to fall asleep for his morning nap, I'm thinking maybe I need to push out his awake times? What's the awake time recommendation for a 10 month old?
- we've done sleep school
- he falls asleep without crying but sometimes just talks to himself for ages
- he's my second baby. My first was one of those kids that just slept through the night so I was completely unprepared for this baby.
