i thought dream feeding was a myth...

until LO started doing it 2 nights ago. we started a bedtime routine that goes like this( sort of)
8pm  bath/changing into jammies
daddy reads a book or sings a song
swaddle (which he hated until now, he need his arms by his head...lol)
paci if he needs it
in crib

when he woke up after been in crib (usually 30min - 1 hour) we move him into our bed for the night

at some point between 1-2:30 am he would wake up to feed, but for the last 2 nights he just nuzzles me and he starts feeding while asleep!
then he has slept for no more than 5 hours max (till about 4-5am) and does it again. then he is up around 7-8 am eats, babbles with us in bed for awhile then sleep till 9-10 and he is up for the day.
is this an ok schedule?

Re: i thought dream feeding was a myth...

  • I can't believe your LO has such an awesome sleeping pattern already.  Yes, it could change at any moment, but at that age, Delilah was still in the 'Hey, it's 3am...let's party!' mode.  LOL.  She STILL has more wakeups than that per night.

    I say you're doing very well ;)


  • That's actually about how Ari slept until he was about 3 months old. He'd wake up once around 2-3 & then not again until 7ish. 

    Ahh, those were the days...
