I work night shift in a nursing home (6pm-6am).
My son is 5 months old. I don't have him on a schedule (feeding or sleeping). I still let him eat and sleep when he wants to. I guess part of it is I'm not sure how to go about getting him on a feeding and sleep schedule. When he is awake he is just so full of energy. He eats about 40 oz a day. He will go to sleep anywhere from 9-11 at night and wake up anywhere from 430am-7am and be asleep again around 5-8am depending on what time he wakes up in the morning. I just don't know if I should start him on a schedule or leave things the way they are. Any suggestions would be great!!
