DD is 8 weeks old and sleeps 6-8 hours a night and will lay back down for 2-3 after being fed. That being said, she does not go to bed until 11:45 at the earliest and 12:30 at the latest. It's great because her wake up time coincides with me needing to get up for work in the morning, but I'm worried that she's getting to sleep too late. DH gets home from work by 11 so it gives him time with her before bed and he gives her the bedtime feeding. DH is ok if I put her down before he gets home, but the problem is she is not sleepy until he gets home. I have tried to put her in her swing after her 7 or 8 o'clock feeding so that she could get sleepy, but she is wide awake and is happy and content until 10 or 10:30 (that's when we start our bedtime routine).
Did anyone else's baby do this and have you been able to start getting them to sleep earlier? Or should I just let it go since it does not seem to be bothering DD and if she needs/wants to sleep earlier she'll do it on her own?
