too hotI shouldn't be complaining and reading posts sent to me by my husband today have helped me come to reality - I don't have it bad. Our little boy (I don't understand all these abbreviations) is 11 weeks and sleeps for an 8 hour stretch at night, just naturally. We're lucky. On the other hand between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. he only sleeps in 35-55 minute stretches. After reading this post it could be that we keep our house colder at night and he likes it cold? His hands are always chilly at night, which I figured was bad, and I've been trying to figure out how to keep them warmer, but perhaps he just doesn't like the warmer day-time temp. I'm not sure I want to be in the house all day at 60, but if he sleeps longer I'll take it with an extra sweater for me (just more to take off before nursing .
Anyone have thoughts of other reasons why a baby would sleep well at night but not during the day? He will sleep longer when I wear him or his dad holds him which maybe throws out the liking cold temperatures idea, since next to us he's really warm...
We're already putting him down to take naps in his co-sleeper, the same place where he sleeps all night. Perhaps us not being in the room makes the difference? Since I'm getting so much sleep at night I don't need naps, but I could read in bed when he's sleeping and see if that helps. Any other ideas would be great.
