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'm doing a log today of all feeds, play time and sleeps. trying to see if there's any kind of pattern and how much sleep ds is getting in the day!
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 first never did... Ever, not until 12 months. I haven't done anything differently and believe there is an element of luck to it.
DS is easy because he did the exact same thing from 2w - 16w.
I feel like we have a fairly established night time pattern but days are a bit all over the place!
