I know there will be varied answered to this since some of our babies are younger than others, but how is baby sleeping?

Nathan is 5 1/2 wks... Sleeps in his room in his crib. Goes to bed at 10:30 and sleeps anywhere from 5-6 hrs, nurses, then goes back down for 2-3 hours. up until a week ago he was in a sleeper next to our bed. He's now also taking regular naps in his crib.

He sleeps in a swing at night and a pack n play during the day. Sometimes, he'll sleep for 4 hours but I'm up after 2 wondering why he's not up. I'm so damn tired.

JoAnn slept awesome in the NICU. But the fist night we had her home she decided she needed to wake up every 2 hour instead of 3 and would not go back to sleep unless she was on me. Now she sleeps some in her crib and mostly in her swing. She sleeps all the time if I leave her in her swing, I have to take her out and wake her up to eat and change her. I think its normal for her to sleep so much still, since she is technically still supposed to be growing in the belly.

Oh no! Noelle can be like that at times. Oddly every monday night (at least right now) I call her snuggly night. She will not sleep unless I am holding her it seems. I just started trying her out in the crib. She did not seem to like the hard bassinet matress. So far the crib seems to be going ok. Although last night/today was the first time we tried.

Wait, baby is supposed to sleep?! Somebody forgot to inform her of that because she hardly ever sleeps and is 6 weeks old now. When she does sleep it is either in her bassinet next to my bed or she joins me in bed. Every now and then she will sleep in the swing. For the most part though I have to be holding her and walking around because the minute I stop moving she wakes up screaming.

Adelaide is an AMAZING little sleeper. She usually sleeps solid until her feedings which are usually every 4 hours during the night. As for where she sleeps, she is either in her cradle right next to me bed or in the fisher price cradle thing we got right next to my bed. We also got a Snuggle Nest to go in our bed but she seemed uncomfy in that, she would always roll to one side. I'm not sure I'm a huge fan of that item but we are holding on to it for a while. Also at her 6am feeding, I will put her in bed with us and she will stay till its time to get up. :)

I have to say Ian sounds just like Ella except her first stretch of sleep is getting longer. She seems like she tries to fill up good right between that 9-11 or 10-12 stretch then finally stays asleep for between 4-5 1/2 hours as of last night! Shes also older but started out as almost even 3 hour intetvals.
