I've not been on in a while, so forgive me if there has been a similar thread. And I know its been mentioned here and there, but I wanted to kind of focus on it.
I'm curious how much your LO sleeps and where/how. Like what is the typical day time nap and what is overnight like? Also, where does your LO sleep best at? I mean crib, swing, being held, etc.
Harley is almost 6 weeks now - she has no real schedule yet, but she usually will sleep a long nap during the day - up to 3 hours. Other than that - she naps the rest of the day between 15 minutes and an hour between feedings and her awake/alert periods. Overnight she usually does a 5 hour stretch like about 1030-330, then about every 2 hours after.
In her overnight strtch she will sleep in the bed w/ me or in the crib/bassinet fine, but during the say she wakes up immediately if I put her in a bed. She sleeps better/longer if she is held, in the swing, in the sling, or in the car seat.
I'm just wondering how this compares to others. I don't remember the details from my 2 other DDs. Have I spoiled her already by holding her to put her to sleep? Is that why she doesn't sleep as well in the crib/bassinet? Or will this just come in time?
