    Good news Ruby! We also had a win last night- Austin slept for 5 hours meaning I got 4 hours straight. Woohoo!

    Default IVF Babies Due August/Sept/Oct'16#3

    Has anyone tried 'save our sleep'? Curious as to know whether it is worth attempting? Or do I just succumb to the fact that newborns do what they want, when they want

    I'm a firm believer in no firm routine before 3 months, no sleep training for at least 6 months and no CIO ever.
    My days suck pretty bad but I understand he's doing his best, as am I.

    Haha there's no wins for us tonight either. Austin is wide awake and refusing to sleep. Hubby just went to bed in the spare room...

    Any of you mummas breastfeeding??
    Breastfed babes are so hard to get into routine because they are constantly snacking as opposed to formula fed which sits heavier in their tummy keeps them full all night. I never had routine it was more go with the flow you no sooner adjust to routine and it gets flipped on its head and your trying to find a new routine x it doesnt last forever

    I was pumping and feeding Austin expressed milk exclusively up until about 2 weeks ago. Now we're learning to breastfeed so we are alternating breastfeeds and expressed milk bottles. We had a really strict feeding routine from the special care nursery where he was fed every 3 hours but we've relaxed a little on that. Now it's every 3 to 4 hours depending on him and one 5 hour stretch at night. I'm hoping he keeps the 5 hour stretch because I love it!

    I think you can develop much more routine when formula fed. My son was breastfed and never had routine he would cluster feed at times and other times go a few hours

    @Peedypie We had the exact same here. Arthur did 5.5 hours then was totally restless the night after. He is now back to his old 3-4 hour stretches. To be honest my main issue is my insomnia rather than his, I can't get back to sleep after the 1 am. It's so annoying

    i express during the day and after his bath at 8pm he gets the bottle with a Calma teat to make sure he starts the night full. He nurses for a little bit at about 1 and 5 and then cluster feeds from about 7-9 am.

    wonder weeks are a great concept in theory but in practice Arthur did not get the memo. He will leap whenever he wants to.

    we also had an Episode of breast refusal when auntie flow visited very unexpectedly at 7w 1d

    Breast fed here and the word routine is laughed at. He naps when and if he wants and he eats all day. It's a Sh!t storm. Mumma is burning out.
