she acts all confused and cute and has baby bedhead when we get up in the morning. doesn't seem to impact her mood, usually she's down again in about an hour.
grateful mama to DD1, born before the robins came, 2010. excited to welcome a little man into the world in early February 2012!
bedsharing, knitting, toddler-nursing, nerdy, babywearing mama!
I follow the "never wake a sleeping baby" mantra myself. However, Cecilia's the first baby; I imagine the next one might get woken up when he or she is not ready yet by a toddler! But Cecilia has a fairly decent sense of self-scheduling. She goes to bed and wakes up at approximately the same time every day naturally. I just follow her cues for naps and bedtime!
Lovin my sweet babygirl 3-17-10 and expecting another in March!
It really sounds worse on paper....(computer?)
So, now that it's summer, I sleep in as long as possible.
I think as your baby gets older, it will be much easier to get a more schedule-thing going on for naps.
Julia didn't give up her third nap of the day until about as she was turning 7 months. She just takes her morning nap about 2-2.5 hours after she wakes up and generally between 1:30-3:00 for an afternoon lay down.
during the day he naps once or twice for about an hour/hour 1/2 each time. he is 8 months now.
i don't wake him. i tried it ONCE and boy did i regret it.
We have a fussy period at night and I nurse her to sleep but she wakes up as soon as she comes off. At that point (~10:30pm) she is normally happy but very awake while I am not at all in the mood to be awake. I don't really care about getting a schedule during the day since I'm at home and it is just her. Any suggestions?
