looking for help from Save our sleepers!! I have a catnapping baby - she was so distraught with tiredness tonight I put her to bed at 5.45pm!! Bugger the 7pm sleeptime!!
My DD is 10 weeks old and according to the routines in Tizzies book, after she wakes at 7am for a feed, I'm not supposed to put her to bed until 9am till 11am for next feed(and so on throughout the day)!!! I've been trying the routines for about 2 weeks, but can't seem to bring myself to make her stay awake when she wants to sleep earlier like 1.5 hours after feed at the latest!! What do you do when they're really tired and want to go to bed, do you string them out for the extra time to the 2 hours? I suppose I should try it as I've tried everything else and she still catnaps!! She aslo wakes from her 45 min catnap and just lies there so I leave her until her next feed but she doesn't cry so I don't get her up, but then she doesn't sleep - she just festers!!! the trouble is she gets more and more tired throughout the day and by the end of the day she's a mess from lack of sleep and the routine is out the window!!
