    My son cried all day up until 3 months old. The only saviour was he slept really well at night because he was in bed with us. But to remember how much my 3 were sleeping at 6 weeks old...no idea.

    My dd never slept well during the day until I went to the sleep clinic. In Canberra we have one called early days which is for 0-3 months and sleep group which goes from 3 months to 2 or 3 years. Not sure where you are from but they may have something similar in your state.

    Sorry I also wanted to say that from going to those clinics, from about 5 months onwards I've been able to put my daughter in her cot and she self settles.

    I did nothing other than cluster feed 2-4hrs straight every afternoon/evening. No feeds/changes between 7/8pm-4/5am. It was the baby.

    And my awesome boobs. Haha.

    Then night time comes.... We have a night ritual and we have a walk, bath, story, breast feed and then I put her down about 7pm. She is grizzly and unsettled for about an hour. She wakes every 2-3 hours throughout the night.

    I don't have huge expectations as I know she is still teeny tiny and I'm 'okay' with all of this if its normal but I'm just worried I'm missing something. Should she be sleeping more?
    About normal. I accepted that my 6w old wouldn't sleep in her bassi during the day- fair enough she is in it all night.
    She sleeps on me or in our bed (on top of covers with pillows around her).

    Some days she sleeps for 2 hours in between each feed. Some days she sleeps for 10 minutes at a time. Often it's a mix.

    Today she woke at 6am for a feed, was up and down until 7.30am and then slept on me until 9.30, then slept in her bassi for an hour- so she slept 7.30-10.30.
    Then had another feed and is wide awake now so we are chatting and singing songs.

    My little one sleeps that much and has been from about the 6 week mark. I only feed her if she wakes up but she is happy to sleep through mostly. She feeds a lot during the day it seems to make up for it.

    My first never did... Ever, not until 12 months. I haven't done anything differently and believe there is an element of luck to it.

    I remember 6 weeks because everything got to its worst with DD at 7 weeks, then magically turned a corner at 8w. Plus writing everything down to try to find her pattern/problem. I always remember things better when I write them down!

    DS is easy because he did the exact same thing from 2w - 16w.

    ahhh cool, that's great! yeah after talking with the mums at mothers group yesterday everyone seemed to have a day time routine. admittedly their bubs are all a bit older than mine but I figure it can't hurt to log his day and see if there's a pattern.

    I feel like we have a fairly established night time pattern but days are a bit all over the place!
