    Thanks everybody! It's reassuring to hear other babies don't always adhere to the sleep guidelines either.

    Starfish30 I think you're right. I'm going to try to spend less time worrying about what she "should" do.

    My DD is in the minority. She didn't sleep anywhere near normal as a newborn, cut down to 1 nap at 7 months old, cut out naps altogether at 20 months old and at 3 years old she only needs 10-12 hours sleep.
    I used to beat myself up thinking I was doing something wrong, but that's just her.
    She's even one of those kids who doesn't always fall asleep in the car despite travelling a fair way.

    Do what works for you both. Happy bub = happy mum. You're doing a great job.

    DS1 and DS2 - no freaking way. DS3? Up until 3-4ish weeks ago he still did and he is almost 15 months old. He would sleep frpm 6pmish to 8amish without wake ups and also has 2-4 hours of nap through the day. He did this from a very young age although until he was 4 months old he was held for every single sleep including through the night.

    I think if you change that to the average baby under 5 months needs around 16-18hours sleep each day, but remember every baby is different, you will feel much better. Remember anything you read in a book us an average or even an ideal, but there are no shoulds when it comes to babies.
