• misskyreelovesβ€’ Just an update on Alaska's sleeping πŸ™ˆ We've been putting her down to sleep every 1.5 hours for the past three days (even if we are out we still do the same) & she's nailing it like a BOSS! She has already fallen into the "Feed, Play, Sleep" pattern & falling asleep so easily just by gently patting her back in her cot. The sound machine is up loudly, she's swaddled in tightly & she's sucking away at her dummy dreaming soundly. Her naps are still only lasting 45ish or so minutes but we are slowly getting there. I managed to pee on my own AND clean the bathroom while she did her last nap (first time in like four months 😳) SUPER MAMA πŸ™‹πŸΌπŸ™‹πŸΌπŸ™‹πŸΌ#TapForDetails #SleepingLikeABoss #ImaDirtyBitch #TotesProbsJustJinxedMyself β€’
  • mssharrrOne more thing, what helped us was to take the pacifier away so he would rely on whatever he had in his crib that he would not be able to toss. Now he sucks his thumb sometimes or scratches his hair.
  • one_wild_tribe#yay to peeing solo. It's seriously still a highlight of my day. And Parker is 1 and a half haha.
  • willowandriley@aleshahaynes thank you! Will give it a shot. Fingers crossed for longer naps.
  • madebymeeandcoWhen you say you put her down every 1.5 hours, do you mean 1.5 hours after start of feed, end of feed, or just 1.5 hours since last sleep (so you're feeding every 1.5 hours also...)? My little one also doesn't sleep great during the day. He sleeps so good at night though so I've never been too worried if he doesn't sleep much during the day, but I think I should start trying to get him into more of a routine in the day so the poor little thing isn't getting overtired. He's 6 weeks old at the moment and just recently started staying awake after feeds. I've started trying to pick up on his early sleep cues, wrap him up and pop him in bed and more often than not he's been falling asleep on his own (winning!) but he also only sleeps for like 45 mins and then when he wakes I try and just let him cry a little to see if he'll self soothe, or I'll try and soothe him back to sleep without picking him up (he doesn't take a dummy yet...working on it) but generally he doesn't just grizzle he cries hysterically until I give him a cuddle. So hard to get anything done during the day. πŸ™„ But I feel like his naps are all over the place and I really need to get a handle on them, so that's why I'm wondering about what you mean by 1.5 hours. He currently feeds about every 3 hours in the day. Sorry for the essay. πŸ™ˆ I feel like we're in the same boat though so I'm enjoying these sleep tips/updates.
  • emma_activeHaha! Peeing on your own... #mumgoals πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
  • misskyreeloves@madebymeeandco Hello my love. So apparently my sleep lady told me that they shouldn't be "awake" longer than 1.5 hours or 2 hours at a time. So in that time I will have fed her, played, changed nappy & back to bed. We swaddle her & rock her with her dummy just so her eyes start drifting off, THEN put her in her cot & pat her to a deeper sleep. It's working at the moment but her nights are still out of whack! She was doing 8-12 hour stints at night but now every two hours πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„ ahahah I wish there was a "sleep well switch" we could use πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  • misskyreeloves@littlespacesco of course please share away
  • minioke_my little ones started waking up frequently at night too. she sleep through the night since she's about 6/8 weeks old. now everything's changing. she's 3mo now. she gets 2 long naps during the day. 2hrs straight each nap which had never happened before. anyways, didn't you tell that Alaska sleeps on her belly? and she still wants to be swaddled? mine was a terror everytime I tried to swaddle her πŸ˜” @misskyreeloves
  • madebymeeandcoAhh yes okay. Makes sense. Thank-you! I'll try that. :)
  • sadie___babySuch an amazing space
  • thestyledspotYay x it's not easy but definitely gets easier. Hang in there u are doing a great job
  • the_shine_project@edebeady I haven't been told off yet πŸ˜‚πŸ™„
  • jessica.curry_A better routine is play feed sleep as milk puts bub to sleep so makes the transition to sleep easier but what ever works for you πŸ€·β€β™€οΈβ€οΈ
  • sarebear95This post inspired me to really start trying to get my little girl down every 1.5hours as she's always struggled with the day naps. Looking out extra carefully for those sleep cues and making sure I put her down before she's actually asleep with her dummy. She's nailed it today and we are only getting 45ish minutes every nap but more consistent amount of naps rather than killing myself trying to get her down for one or two naps that never last long. So thankyou @misskyreeloves I just love your feed 😍
  • _dd_apparelGo mumma!!!
  • mushroom83@kimlowee my daughter was doing he same when she was little and my friend suggested if she wakes after only 30mins crying she hadn't had enough sleep so to either pick her up and rock her back to sleep or pat her on the bottom till she drifted back off within a few days she was doing x2 one hour naps for me in the day.. #winning she's always been a better day sleeper than at night. It may be worth a try. 😊
