My name is Stacey Lambert,
Baby: Kaley June was born October 14th, 2009. W 8lb15oz, L 54cm. Berwick Hospital, Fantastic stay, Midwives were priceless!

Current weight: 14.5lb and 64.5cm. She is a ball of fun, developing alot, working on the rolling, tummy time.

Sleeping: Sleeping through the night since 3 months. The last few nights she's waking around 3am, grunting and groaning and talking heaps.
I keep getting up and popping in the dummy, should I, or just ignore her?

Feeding: Fully breast fed, approx 5 feeds in a 24 hour period, which is expected at this age. The last feed around 9.30 - 10pm....is this enough?

Does anyone have the same issues...please share your veiws :-)

Hi there,

My daughter was born on 24th of October.

She sleeps through to 7:00am after for 10:30 Dreamfeed. I wake her every morning at 7:00am and we start the day.

As for the dummy - you really want to know? I'd say no. She needs to learn to self settle - a very handy skills she will need to do anyway so it may be a tricky time but worth it. I was fine with giving Lexie the dummy before 6 weeks but then got her to go cold turkey in a day and now she self settles - LOVE IT.

On the feeding thing - We do a Breastfeed @ 7:00am / 11:00am / 3:00pm / 6:30pm and then a Dreamfeed bottle at 10:30pm. You'll only know it's enough if you get lots of nappy's and putting on weight and it sounds like she is just perfect!

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Thanks Van, your routine helps confirm our routines. I tried the bed at 7pm, dream feed at 10ish...(dark room, no stimulation ect..) but Kals would fully wake up, wen I put her back down at 11.30ishh she'd take an hour to settle..she would chitty chatter ect...so it became after 12...and i had little sleep. so now she has her last nap at 6.30ishh, we wake her at 8.30, bath, book, bed by 9.30pm...she sleep till 7am :-) and Mum and Dad get a full nights sleep.
