What does your baby's sleep schedule look like?

We're not really on a set schedule yet, but Ali Claire seems to sleep a lot.

These last two days Noelle has really been napping a lot but of course it is because my DH is home to help lol.
Usually we get one 4-5 hour stretch at night (9/10pm to about 2/3am) then usually two more 2-3 hour stretches. Her up time is usually from about 9am/10am ish to about 12 or 1 pm. This is of course a generalization because she loves to prove me wrong every time I answer peoples question about this.
Such as today where she ate and was back asleep by 9am. Very unlike her usually she is up now lol.

Sleep? What's that? At least during the day, anyway. Connor hardly ever takes a decent nap before 4:30pm. Up until that point it is usually no more than 15 minutes at a time unless someone holds him the entire time. I did get a 2 hour nap out of him one day last week....but I was holding him and wound up taking a nap myself, lol. We're actually going to try to start getting him to take a nap in the crib in his room instead of down here in the living room. We think that maybe there is too much going on down here for him to want to go to sleep. It worked for one nap yesterday - he slept about an hour and a half in his room.
At night he does pretty well, though. He usually goes to sleep for the night around 8pm and will sleep 3-4 hours at that time. He wakes up to eat, then sleeps about 2-3 hours, wakes up to eat, then sleeps another 2 hours-ish and eats again. Most of the time he'll go back to sleep for at least another hour or two, but sometimes not. And as long as his stomach isn't bothering him he sleeps pretty soundly at night, which is nice since he sleeps in my arms, lol. When he is restless at night he keeps me awake. But all in all, he's not bad with his sleep (especially at night)...he's much better than my first one was, that's for sure!

At 10 weeks old, Dillon seems to sleep quite a bit too. He regularly takes two-2 hour naps during the day as well as some cat naps, in particular anytime he gets in the carseat! He's still sleeping well at night. He usually goes 5-6 hours straight at night in his crib but last night he went 8.5 hours, hurray!!

This all sounds VERY similar to Dillon. He's also sleeping about 5-6 hours straight at night for the last 6 weeks. This weekend he did sleep 8.5 hours straight through, but then the following night was back to 6 hours, so I'm hoping he's going to start sleeping in longer blocks.

Days are still hit & miss. He's only gotten up once the past few days at night so I hope we're on to something!

ETA: He's taking his bottles a little faster so I still hold him up for the same amount of time so we're down to 45-60 min per feeding.

Ok thank goodness your baby eats so close together. Isaac eats every 2 1/2- 3 hours and I was worrying that was too often!
