DH & I have a routine for Wednesdays & weekends, he works from home Wednesdays - I get up with Ethan overnight to breastfeed, but DH takes over at 5:30am, so I can sleep in. Saturday morning, I was able to go back to sleep until almost 10am!!
Ethan seems to only take little cat naps now - up to 45 minutes. I try to ignore him & let him fall back to sleep, doesn't always work. So by the evening he is cranky. Yesterday he continued cat napping through 8pm. He started screaming, so tired. We gave him a bath & settled down to rock/nurse. He fell deep asleep around 10:30 after more cat naps. He woke up at 4:30am!! 6 hours of sleep!! It was divine. I want to start getting him on a real schedule. I started reading Ba.by Wi.se, but who has time to read a whole book? I need a brochure. Can anyone summarize Ba.by Wi.se for me?
Update: Thursday night he slept great too - asleep by 10:30, up at 4 to nurse, back to sleep by 4:30, up at 8:15. :) Now he's probably sleeping too much at night. : ( After he nursed in the 4:00 hour, I had to pump. Walking around getting my stuff together, I noticed that the cat throw up his food. He occasionally binges & purges. Luckily I didn't step in it AND it was on the tile.
