Dd slept 9:00pm-2:30pm last night. Back down from 3:30-6:30am.
Today she has slept from
8:00am-9:50am
10:20am-11:20am
1:00pm-2:20pm
4:15pm-4:50pm
And she is Still yawning, cranky, rubbing her eyes right now after 30minutes awake!
She refuses to go to bed any earlier though. Her day time naps are decent so I don't really understand.

For what it's worth I placed her in cot at 8pm yesterday and she whinged on/off but then fell asleep on her own. No crying though. I go straight to her if she cries but I do let her whinge for five minutes before going to her.

is she growing eating smiling playing grabbing things?
sits propped up with cushions? holds head up? is putting on weight?
if she is alert and happy when awake and getting stronger then don't worry. if she is not advancing then ask health visitor to review and refer if needs be.
if you concerned ask health visitor to review.

She was born at 35 weeks so a little behind.
She is alert and smiles as soon as she sees me
She has started to roll onto her side
She doesn't grab toys on her own but will grab a Muslim or little blanket if I give it to her
Following the 9th centile for her actual age.
She is happy right now rolling around on her play mat and cooing at out curtains (which she loves for some reason)
Just don't understand why she's always so tired

if she is alert and wide awake when she is awake; then dont worry. she is just getting tired rolling around etc. if she is miserable and floppy and limp and not enjoying life at all then go see health visitor.
but it sounds like she is fine when she is awake.
if she has more hours awake in the evening then that is just the schedule she is on.

4:15-5:30

That sounds fine for a 4/5 months old. At 6 months both mine slept 10pm-8am through, then still napped around 5-6hrs a day in between. So 14/15+ hours a day asleep

i wish i had the energy to record when our baby slept but mostly I just give a silent prayer and hope for the best
