Just wondering how much your Beach Bum (and you) are sleeping at night?? Jack is doing better than when he came home from the hospital (where he'd only sleep maybe an hour or two stretch at a time and is now sleeping froma bout 9-12:30 and then 1-4, then 5-7. However, I'd really like to try and get him to not have it so broken up. One of the biggest problems with him is that when he wakes up at 4, he takes FOREVER to eat and still ends up falling asleep before he finishes a bottle, which is probably why he wakes up so soon afterward. How are other babies sleeping?

I have to say that Molly is doing very well here.

Oh shut up!!! Just kidding of course, but I am sooo jealous. Even though I don't actually feel as tired as I thought I would, it's still taking a toll. I find myself having very little patience at work and at home because of it. Although, I just keep telling myself that he will start sleeping better soon...I just wish soon was NOW : )

So it sounds as if Rowan is almost on a similar sleep schedule as Jack. I think the biggest problem I have is that when he wakes up for that 4:30 feeding, he doesn't finish until 5 (or even 5:30 some nights) and that's too late for me to go back to sleep as I'm back at school now. Maybe within the next few weeks he'll be able to push that off a little (or give up the midnight feeding).

Carter is starting to only wake up once in the night. i am back to work and I work the night shift so its all on his Dad to deal with now. :) I am not able to sneak away and pump like i thought i would...just during my lunch break so im glad he's slowing down because i wouldn't be able to keep up ;)

At 10 days old Eve was sleeping 8 plus hours a night, which at that point was great because I was sick and that helped me get over it.

HI, I have not posted in a long time. But would like to start joining in the discussions more often.

My daughter (Charlotte Jane) sleeps pretty well. I feed and put her down about 7-7:30 pm and then she gets up around 2:30/3:00 for a bottle and then back to bed and gets up around 7/7:30 am. She was 2 months old 2 days ago. I guess I can't complain to much.

She has started the last 2 days having some issues with her naps. So I guess it is always something with these little ones...:).

Jenna is a big night owl.. She stays up all evening/night and goes down for the night (after hours of nursing) at 1045pm-1am! and sleeps until 4am- 7 or 8 am. and then will sleep until 11 sometimes. She will not sleep in crib!! She only likes her infant car seat. sigh

Jack seems to like to sleep all morning as well..which would be really nice if I was still home from work. Really starting to regret not taking any maternity leave at the beginning of the school year!! LOL

However, he did sleep the other night from 8-2 which was probably the longest stretch he's every done....and then went back to sleep until 6. Last night we went to the fair, so I think his schedule was a little messed up and he wound up waking up every two hours...so we're still not really in an every night kind of routine.

But what's the difference between this item and the car seat? Both she will outgrow at 20 something pounds. She's 12.4 lbs now. I might as well as not buy any other gadgets if it means not in the crib anyway. I may just wait it out or try in a few weeks.
