Hi mums, so since my ds was about 8 weeks we have done a rough bedtime routine of between 7 and 8.30 bath, baby massage, pjs and nappy change, feed, book and bed. Ds suffers terrible reflux, so after every feed, not just at night, we have to let him sit on us for at least 20 mims to let his feed settle. Cant just put him down or it comes straight up, so cant do the whole letting him settle himself yet as he generally asleep by the time he goes on the moses. Generally, he sleeps till About 3/4 ish then wakes up For a feed. Then gors back down for a little while then up For 6 ish. However, some nights, he is getting really tierd at 6 and trying to nap, other times i am feeding him at 8 and then he wont fall asleep, and have to wait till his next feed then at 11 ish before he goes to sleep. I feel like im Doing something wrong and just crap at all this. Also his daytime naps are all over the place. Its really hit and miss if he sleeps after a feed or not. Can tell he wants too but really fights it. Plus when he does Go down his reflux often wakes him Up.
Any ideas ladies? Or am i Doing ok? What times do U put ur little ones down?
Do you get up at the same time every morning? I found that making that time consistent made daytime naps, and consequently a 7pm bedtime, a lot easier Good luck, it's all trial and error and it sounds like you're off to a great start!
