@bbhope - oh poor bubby. Sleeping is def a learnt skill. Someone told me that and it made me feel better once I heard it cos now I understand. I realised that Bub is always different. Everyone told me routine and schedule and that actually stressed me out more. They all said 1-1.5 hr awake time
Etc. seriously now I realise Bub is not a robot. And trying to keep up a schedule actually made me anxious cos Bub doesn't fit into a schedule. So sometimes he is awake for over 3 hrs and is fine didn't grump at all. In fact he went crazy when I tried out him to sleep after 1.5 hrs. Then my mum said he's not tired unswaddle him and let him play so I did that and he stopped crying. Then he fell asleep in the car seat for 1.5 hrs after being up for 3.5 hrs so who knows! The mhn is correct, just be led by bubs. I guess when they're older you need to set boundaries for them like they need their nap time and can't just play forever but right now, it's just go with the flow. So I'm gonna do that and see how I go. No more schedules for me and just try to read Bub.
Sometimes nothing works @bbhope. Just have to let them scream it out even in your arms. I hate those times. Really gets my heart racing!
Bub has only fed 4 times today. Maybe 550-600ml 😳 Will wake him before midnight for another feed before his nighttime sleep.
