My 10 week old is great with sleep, he usually falls asleep on his own in his cot for naps and at night. He has very recently started to go to bed between 7:30 and 8pm and will sleep through till 6 am (with a dream feed at about 10pm).
Today though he did not sleep as well at nap times. He was fighting sleep and cried a bit, (I suspect tummy ache as he stopped as soon as he filled his nappy). This evening he fell asleep quite suddenly while i was holding him at 6:30! I put him in his cot thinking he would have 20 mins or so but this seems to be it for the night.
Now I don't know what to do as he is still fully dressed etc and I am concerned that he will wake up far too early tomorrow and we will have more sleep-time problems. People say never wake a sleeping baby though!
My dd at about 4 months used to fall asleep at 530 (!) and I would wake her with milk at about 9, change her, have a quiet cuddle and play for 45 mins, and she would happily go off to sleep afterwards. I did that for weeks!
Thank you! I think I needed a little reassurance. I have left him and I will change him and feed him at the time I would be giving him his dream feed I think. Will see how it goes and hope there isn't too much disruption caused!
Thanks for the reassurance. I've calmed down my worrying a bit now and I know I've done the right thing by letting him sleep.
ellesabe, I have been doing that since birth. This routine has not been enforced in any way by me. We are baby led and this is the natural pattern he has fallen into. I just worry (like any new mum I guess).
I suppose because I haven't had to think about his sleep or routine before I am over-thinking it now...
