What does night time look like for you?
Hi ladies. I'm curious about how the other March moms and babies are doing at night. What is the bedtime routine, is LO still in your room, is LO selfsettling, etc.
My LO is 12 weeks. We swaddle, give her a bottle of formula, and hold her until she's in a deep sleep. It's usually around 8 or 8:30 when we lay her down in her crib. She sleeps until about 2. We feed again and I lay her back down at 3, asleep. The rest of the night she sleeps quite restlessly, however and is usually up for the day by 5. Honestly, she often ends up in her bouncer next to our bed after 3 a.m.
We've been trying the awake but drowsy thing during the day, with mixed results. Thinking we need to be trying at night too but I desperately need that 5 to 6 hour stretch she gives us and I'm afraid of messing it up! Also,we keep her upright for at least 30 min after a bottle due to reflux, so she is usually asleep by that time anyway.
