    He finds it really hard to fall asleep, it's just tricky.

    Being BF as well we are feeding on demand so I don't know if he will be awake at 8 or ready for bed at 8.

    I know it will sort itself out but it just seemed so unfair this morning, he went down at 720 and only fell asleep at 8.. 835 I had to pick him up to go and unwrap him to get him in the car.
    Then sure enough 9 am we're about to leave school and he needs a feed. Poor bubba. He's probably thinking this Isn't at all what he expected when he came into the world

    Hugs.

    I also demand feed mine and had the same issue eg no help etc.
    I tried to be ready earlier and feed bub when he/she was hungry even if it was at school. Hell I still feed at school and he is 22mths.
    I find bub tends to fall asleep in the car. All but one of my liked the car. So I was pretty blessed.

    I wouldn't be worried about routine just yet. Bub should go with your flow at this age. I walked everywhere when ds2 was born. Is walking an option?

    Nope not an option.

    It's not about routine, rather just allowing him to sleep when he's already asleep.

    I think he likes the car, just not the 'being disturbed to be put in the car' thing.

    I might even try just being ready earlier and going early to school if he won't fall asleep in the capsule.

    If the capsule doesn't work, could you carry him (sling/wrap/carrier) until you're ready to go then transfer him into the capsule still asleep?

    Can you get to school or a park near school earlier for your oldest to play while bub feeds then sleeps in the pram?
