Kara is in bed beween 9 and 9:30 - after the older kids are in bed, she gets her bath and a good nursing session then I swaddle her in her Swaddle Me and put her in her crib with her fishies on (Peaceful Planet Aquarium). She watches them for about 5 minutes and then drifts off and sleeps until somewhere between 7 and 9. If it is 9 and she isn't up, I wake her. If she gets up at 7, she wants to nurse and then go back to sleep for a few hours. She then takes 2-3 naps a day for 1 1/2 - 3 hours each. She is such a good sleeper, just like our first two were which is nice because our two year old has been the worlds worst sleeper, but is finally getting better!!

Madeline has a bath at 6:30 every night, then a bottle and bed.

Leela just started sleeping 8-5 straight this week, then she's usually up for the day at about 730. She still takes 4 naps a day usually for 1-2 hours each, but will take as few as 2 long naps (like today, poor thing!) if we're out and about all day.

Jett sounds perfectly normal to me, a good sleeper even! It's normal at this age to still need a nightly feeding. James didn't at first, but does now... I consider that he sleeps from 8 or 9 pm til 3 or 4 (and then nurses/sleeps in my arms til 5 or 6, when we get up) a miracle, considering my first two were always hungry and nursed all night til well past this age. Mileage varies so much, but in my world, having a baby this young, sleep most of the night, is incredibly lucky.
Hang in there, Jennifer!

Oh Jett is definitely a good night time sleeper (those daytime catnaps would kill me though haha)! It's a miracle my snow pea sleeps this well at this age... my first was up every 2-4 hours foreverrrrrrrr and never slept as long as this one until I sleep trained her. Even now she still wakes up during the night a lot, she's just a better stay-in-bed-quietly-er now :P
