Our daughter Lexi is not the best day sleeper (afraid she'll miss out on something) she'll have occasional days where she sleeps all day then other days like today that she fights sleeping and at around this time 5-6pm likes to cry the house down as she is over tired.
But on the up side the last week she has stated sleeping through the night, usually only woke once for a 3am feed anyway which i didnt mind.
I put her to sleep in her rocker after her 7.30pm feed, then i top her up with a small amount at about 10pm before i put us to bed, then she'll stir at about 4-5am as she has pulled her arm out of swaddling and needs to be reswaddled (stays asleep through it all) then she wakes at 6.30am as thats when my husband leaves for work, i get her up at 7am for a play under her playgym while i shower and she feeds at 7.30am. Shes a great alarm clock for the school week but it sucks on weekends as i can never get a sleep in, cant have it all!!!!
I feel so lucky, as i have a friend whos baby is 2 days older and i was just speaking to her on the phone today and she was so excited to tell me her daughter finally went over night sleeping for 4hrs straight, i didnt tell her Lexi has been sleeping through the night as i didnt want to make her feel bad gasp(
Our 1st born was a great sleeper from day 1 UNTIL teething started at 6mths boy was that hard as he was a bad teether, fingers crossed for little Lexi hope history doesnt repeat itself!!!!!!
