    @Tanej78: omg. BH didn't post yours and I didn't see it either until now. What a bummer about the tube!!! Can u sue the dr?

    I just jinxed myself. DS woke up at 11pm. My mind was a blur thinking he had an interrupted sleep cycle. Resettled him. Few mins later, he woke up again. Turned out he was hungry. Fed him. Since he was wife awake by the time I responded all these, it took me an hr to resettle him. Oh....no self settled this time. I had to pick him up and rocked.

    Sigh....just when I thought he is back to the 2am cycle. Strange. I added the thickener the first time on tonight feed. Another coincidence that his body is adjusting and thus the short sleep cycle??? Remember, I mentioned about this midnight wake thing happened after we switched the formula. Anyway, head to bed now. I hope he stays asleep.

    @Minib - yeh I think he might be relying on dummy too much to calm himself down. Also on me sitting there and patting him. He didn't sleep through tonight tho. Whoever said they sleep longer when they fall asleep themselves is a liar! Lol. How are you going with no dummy for dd?

    @bbhope - that's the problem with cared. Ruins your routine and they will always do what is easiest cos they have others to care for. Rather than what is right for your son. I guess you won't be going back to this place? Ds barely ate much at each feeding yesterday: only once ate 150ml. All others 80-110ml. It would be so much better if he ate more and napped longer. I wonder if there's something wrong with him which makes him not be able to sleep longer than 40 min. Maybe I need to burp him longer? But if he doesn't spit up during tummy time does that mean I've burped him enough?

    I think cc will have a set schedule as well. I would assume the cc would be more formal than a family day care. I thought a small family setting would have less distraction so DS can get more attention and slightly customised care. I guess I am wrong about the family day care. I wasn't very picky because I just need rest and this arrangement is temporary. The carer did ask me if I am interested for permanent care once I return to work. Also, I get the feeling that DS just sat in his bouncer the entire time he was at the family day care. (Judging from all the photos she sent me!)

    Anyway, I am glad that we will have a babysitter instead in 2w time.

    @Gelati she sleeps so much better at night without dummy. It's over 2 weeks and she doesn't miss it. If you are thinking of ditching it you need to be sure as you need to stick to your decision. Otherwise it confuses them. Dummy works for some babies though. Lots of babies.
    @bbhope did DS stay asleep? From what I heard cc has a schedule one size fits all. This is for older kids though as in set eat and sleep time. Not for baby I'm sure

    DS had a restless sleep but didn't require me to resettled him after that long session of resettling. He just woke up at 6am as usual. I held him an now he is still sleeping. I will let him sleep if he wants to go pass 7am. Since he has an unrestful night with all the kicking with his stomach.

    Ya, will have to ask the CC about the routine. To be honest, I am happy that I find a place this week so I can rest. The other annoyance is just minor because it is only a week and we will try to reset. I will make it clear to the babysitter what we expect in 2w time. Well, I personally won't put DS to family daycare as a permanent basis. It is home based. It is ok for young babies like DS who doesn't care much about education for now. As he grows older, I like a CC that focuses on education and activities. Our work CC is very good and a lot of people try to get in. We will be lucky if we get in! I will call them and ask about the details, though.
    @Gelati: I read a lot about catnapping. 30--40mins is due to the fact that Bub cannot transit into the next sleep cycle. I don't know why some babies don't have the trouble. You can try to help them like i do but that is exhausting for the whole day and might not work. With DS at daycare, I only need to help him for 1 nap. That's manageable.

    Good work on dumping the dummy. I don't think we will ditch it anytime soon (unfortunately). It helps reflux and colic babies a lot. Gastro specialist appt next week.

    I found dd doesn't transition to the next sleep cycle as well during the day. At night time no issue. I don't mind as long as night sleep is good. Day time I will be ok.
    @bbhope I agree re cc. I like it too because there is structure for education and development. Better than family day care in my view. Or even nanny. This is my opinion though

    @bbhope how come sometimes he can transition and other times he can't? He just napped for 1.5 hr then. So I know he can do it. The only way to transition is if I pick up and rock. It's just too much effort. I get too tired by the end of the day.
    Yeh agree formal cc is better. I just got offered another place in cc but still not my ideal one.

    @Minib I wouldn't mind catnap during the day but he is just too grumpy after a catnap. How do you get her to sleep now? I want to ditch dummy but I needed it to get him to sleep in the pram and car seat so can't completely ditch it. Sigh he fell asleep in pram but on with me patting him and dummy. Not from walking. Oh well try again tmr.

    @bbhope new routine again for ds. Slept 10-3:30 then 4-9. No idea what's going on. Sigh.

    Maybe for you it was the change in formula? But honestly who knows. Our son is diff everyday and we haven't changed anything!

    @Gelati my DD also has trouble transitioning during the day but seems ok during the night. I don't know why. I asked the MHN and she said its ok as sometimes babies want to cluster feed during the day. Then a big feed and a big sleep. It just means it's hard to get things done. Like today she's only done 30 mins catnap every sleep so I have managed to scoff my lunch and wash the dishes. I had to skull my coffee too lol. Oh well.

    If you need dummy for the pram then don't ditch dummy. It has to be consistent so he knows not to expect dummy.

    During the day I feed, nappy change, play, tummy time. Then I took her to the nursery. I sat on the nursing chair while cuddling her. I sang a few songs to her. And tell her gently to go to sleep, I love her and will be back to check on her soon. Then I put her down. Some days it works some days she cries. I leave the room when she's not crying then give her 4 minutes of protest cry before checking on her. If it's emotional cry I pick her up straight away even its only been 20 seconds. I try to pat but almost never work so I pick her, cuddle and talk to her gently again. Then leave the room again. I repeat until she falls asleep. Generally speaking she can fall asleep pretty ok. So if she continues to cry she's probably hungry so I check hunger, wet nappy and burp. Once these three things are ticked I repeat the process again.

    At night feed quiet time sing talk and sleep. I cuddle for quite a few minutes but don't let her fall asleep on us. Some days though she doesn't want to play and just want to sleep after a feed so I let her.

    I'm also not strict on the time. I feed around 2-4 hours. I find eventually she will have a bigger nap.

    With the pram she has managed to sleep while I'm walking. How do you pat him while walking. Sometimes if the pram isn't moving I tend to move the pram on the same spot until she is drowsy then stop.

    @Gelati: I don't know why. It is certainly confusing when DS is doing 7pm--2am for a few days and then 7pm--12am again. Great! Just when my body and mind aer ready for 2am schedule again!

    Well, i phoned work CC. I didn't know that they only take 8 children (0-1 yr) at once. No way we are getting in then. I am surprised given that they have to cater the entire workplace! My colleague is so lucky because they put the name down just when his son was born. We put our name down when i was 5 months pregnant! I think it depends on the time of the year. They move 0--1 yr children up to 1--2 yr so open up vacancy. Look like i have to put my name down for a daycare in CBD then.

    They will implement what's done at home because it is easier for the transition. I am so glad to hear!!! I wasn't keen to send DS to SAHM babysitter but didnt' realize that this family day carer has a 8 months old baby. From what i could see in the last few days, her baby is VERY demanding! More so than other 2 babies for the same age.
