Very badly! Up 3-4 times a night feeding for up to an hour at a time. I'm a pale shadow of myself. At least she does now do a solid two hour nap in the middle of the day- small mercies! Dd is 11mo.Her older sibs were also crap sleepers!

He did 7:30-10:30 then until 4:45 the other night. First time since newborn weeks!

He roughly does 7-11 then every two hours. shock

Similar here - will do 7.30 or 8.30-11.30pm then 2am/4am/5am/6.30 (last night!)

I'm wondering what is changing with her, it's probably the nap schedule where she'll take a good 2 hr morning nap and will still want an hour in the afternoon. Which is great as it gives me time to do dinner and help the other 2 with homework. But not so great if it's affecting her nighttime sleep. SO I think I'll have to alter the afternoons somehow.

However she will sleep more soundly if she's beside me in my bed. Mmm. Teething is also a player too. So I'm tempted to just let her sleep with me for a few more months so we all get some proper zzzzzz whilst her teeth come through. Then I'll have to restart some sleep routine when she's a little bit more settled & older too.

Would love some tips though! It's HARD

Not great. Rubbish catnaps in the day. Usually a good chunk of slep until 5am ish then often up to start the day. The same cycle continues and we have a cranky baby who constantly looks tired

My dd sleeps from 7 until about 11 or 11.30 then up for a feed then sleeps usually until about 5 or 6 am then up for morning feed then goes back to sleep until 9 am.
That's at the moment but over the last few weeks she's been doing different things and waking at random times. She has been a fairly good sleeper though generally.

We're going to try and night wean next week though as I want to stop breastfeeding...

She usually has a nap around lunchtime but not usually longer than an hour. Then a short nap late afternoon sometimes these are one long nap instead.
