I have my 3 month old son on a fairly good routine.
Up around 6-6.30am feed&play, sleep around 8am for 40mins (one sleep cycle)
Up at 9am-dress for day feed 9.30am&play.
Walk in pram at around 11am where he will also do 40mins sleep.
Home by 12pm sum tummy time, feed 12.30pm&play then down for a good 21/2-3hr sleep around 2pm.
Up at 5pm feed&play.
Bath 7pm, massage and quiet cuddle then last feed at 8pm.
He will be asleep by 9pm and sleeps right through till morning!
I am concerned as he does need me to rock him almost to sleep and does not resettle after one sleep cycle in the mornings which can make him overtired so i purchased tizzie halls book save our sleep. What BS!! My son self settles most times but if i were to put him in bed wide awake as she suggests he just plays. In her book she only caters for babys that cry when put into to bed! She also does not explain what to do if your baby self settled but wakes after 10-40mins anyways, she just expects that if a baby self settles it will sleep the required time!! As i said wether my son self settles or not he will wake after the 40mins in the mornings and is wide awake playing. And sumtimes after 10-40mins in his avo sleep so i havta re-settle him then, i cannot just leave him as he will cry non stop or just play if happy. I wanted to comment/ask this on tizzies website but you havta PAY to contact her! What a rip!! I already feel ripped off as i purchased the book.
Any suggestions, what are your babys routines and self settling habits? TA:)
