My baby is ________ months old. S/he sleeps in __________. S/he goes to be around _____ and wakes up around ______. S/he wakes up about _____ times during the night. When s/he wakes up, I ____________ to calm him/her down and get him/ her back to sleep. My partner helps with this ___________.

I'll go first:
My baby is 10 months old. She sleeps in her crib for part of the night and then our bed. She goes to bed around 8 and wakes up around 5. She wakes up about 4 times a night (on a good night;). I breastfeed her to get her back down, and my partner never helps with this!

Happy first time mama - Rosa born 2/4/11!

This may not be helpful to you since my babe is just under 3 weeks old but I'll give you feedback.

I mostly take care of the night time parenting because I haven't started pumping and he is exclusivly on the breast.  My partner did mention that he can't wait for me to pump so he can soothe him better if he needs to help when he wakes up to eat in the middle of the night.  Even when that happens I will probably do most of the work at night because he is a heavy sleeper or relutant to wake up.


 

Oh I just realized I said that my baby only sleeps from 11-4 and wakes up during the night.  I meant he wakes at 4 for his first wake up then we nurse on and off the rest of the night but I usually am half alseep during it and he gets up when I feel like it or when we have to drive my partner to work at 8 and sometimes after that we go back to bed for a nap.

Here's mine (note, with all the teething going on, the only consistent thing about sleep of late has been inconsistency).

 

My baby is 8 months old. She sleeps in our bed with the two of us and our dog. She goes to be around 7:00 pm and wakes up around 7:00 am. She wakes up 2-5 times during the night. When she wakes up (she doesn't actually fully wake up, she fusses), I nurse her because she is hungry and then she goes back to sleep. My partner cannot help with this.


DW and I are moms to two teens (DD 17 and DS 15) adopted through CAS in 2007 and a toddler (DD 2) born at home in March 2011.

My baby is ~8months old. He sleeps in our bed with me (DP sleeps on the couch). He goes to be around 6:30p and wakes up around 5:30-7a. He wakes up about 2-6 times during the night. When he wakes up, I nurse him to calm him down and get him back to sleep because that's what works. My partner helps does not with this because her boobs don't make milk.

My baby is 7 months old. He sleeps in bed with DH and I. He goes to bed around 7:30 and wakes up around 7:00. He wakes up about 4 times during the night. When he wakes up, I nurse him back to sleep or pick him up and rock him (this only happens a couple times a week when he won't nurse back down). My partner helps with this very rarely. Most of the time DH doesn't even wake up when DS does.

My baby is 10 months old. He sleeps in bed with me. He goes to be around 9 and wakes up around 9. He wakes up about 3-4 times during the night. When he wakes up, I nurse him to calm him down and get him back to sleep. My partner helps with this when he goes down for the night (which is sometimes tricky) but not in the middle of the night - DS always goes back to sleep right away.

My baby is 7 months old. he sleeps in our bed (or in arms/sling/mei tai) He goes to bed around 8ish and wakes up around 7ish. He wakes up about 3ish (this a guess more accurate would be to say less than my DD did) times during the night. When he wakes up, I nurse and sometime cuddle him on my chest while jiggling him to calm him down and get him back to sleep. My partner helps with this ___________.... Hmmm...Generally my DH does not help with nighttime parenting, and when he does it's in the context of helping our older dd. He puts her to bed every night and then resettles her in the night sometimes. He's a heavy sleeper and to be frank waking him up to deal with night time issues is more of a pain in the a$$ than dealing with them myself. An exception is when the kids are sick. Then I need him to step it up and he does.

Awesome! Thanks, all you mamas. I originally posted this bc I was fooling myself into thinking that my girl should be sleeping through the night. I needed some real time stats from those of us in the sleep-trenches. It's super reassuring to hear that night waking is still very normal! Hope one day WE can all sleep through the night again!

Happy first time mama - Rosa born 2/4/11!

It's also... well, not reassuring I guess lol.gif but... a realistic reminder to those of us still looking towards that, that nighttime parenting is probably gonna be 90% my job.

 

I've kind of always assumed that's the way it would go, at least while BFing, but some have tried to convince me that it can be tag-teamed. I remain unconvinced, and will simply acclimate myself to the idea of being a single mom during sleeping hours. ;)

My baby is 8.5 months old. She sleeps in her crib for part of the night and then my bed (DH is a very light sleeper and has been sleeping downstairs on the pullout). She goes to bed around 9 and wakes up around 7-8. She wakes up about 2-3 times a night. I rock and give her a pacifier to get her back down, and when that doesn't work I feed her (she is FF and takes 1 bottle/night usually).  My partner does not help with this.

Wait hold on a minute there :) it CAN be tag teamed and it's ok to ask your parenting partner to help out. I generally follow the nighttime rule of  "do what gets me the most sleep" which is why (as I stated above) I deal with the nighttime parenting of my babe--a) all he needs is a quick nurse in bed and b) waking DH is a pita--so generally there is no need to wake my DH. But you'd better believe if DS needed to be rocked multiple times in the night or required more vigorous nighttime parenting than simply rolling over and sticking my boob in his mouth, I'd be waking my heavy sleeping DH up for help! When my DH complains about our DD climbing into bed with us at night, I tell him if he wants to wake up and move her to her own bed...great, he has my support. BUT I'm not doing it! And I'm not waking him up to do it, cause I'm too busy attending to DS and my own sleep needs. I hope this makes sense. Basically I'm trying to say that a mama's got to do what a mama's got to do to get as much sleep as possible but that doesn't mean that daddys (aka parenting partners) are off the hook at night. You have a right to ask them for help and they should give it when asked!!

My baby is 4.5 months old. He sleeps in his crib until his first nighttime wakeup, then in bed with me. He goes to bed around 8pm and wakes up around 9-10am. He wakes up about 3-5 times during the night, all between 3am and when he gets up in the morning. When he wakes up, I nurse to calm him down and get him back to sleep. He usually doesn't actually wake up, just fusses in his sleep.

My partner helps with this by brining baby into bed after his first wake up, then going to sleep downstairs for the rest of the night smile.gif That is at MY request - he would help more at night but he snores and that keeps me awake, so I would rather him sleep downstairs once babe starts waking up more frequently. That helps me get more sleep!

     i work full time (60 hours a week) and had to quit pumping at a year b/c i couldn't take it anymore and unfortunately my supply dried up really quickly.  I usually nursed DD to sleep and whenever she woke at night.  DH never woke up, but I was fine w/ it b/c i LOVED the night wakes with her and I miss nursing her SO MUCH.  Anyway, now that there's no more nursing to sleep, DH and I equally share the nighttime comforting needs.  I still wake up every time she cries though and I can never fall back to sleep the way DH can!

My baby is 2 months old.  She sleeps in a pack and play next to my bed.  She goes to bed around 10 pm and wakes up around 8am.  She sometimes wakes up about one time during the night, most nights she sleeps through.  When she wakes  up, I change her and nurse her to calm her down and get her back to sleep.  My partner does not help with nursing, but will change her on weekends or sit up with me if I ask him to.

 

I got lucky on the sleep front, though I don't fool myself into thinking it will last.  She's been sleeping through since about five weeks.  I'm dreading teething.

I'll go first:
My baby is 10 months old. She sleeps in her crib for part of the night and then our bed. She goes to bed around 8 and wakes up around 5. She wakes up about 4 times a night (on a good night;). I breastfeed her to get her back down, and my partner never helps with this!


Our babes are only about a week apart in age (DD's birthday is 1/28) so maybe it's a good comparison...

 

My baby is 10 months old. She sleeps in her room in a toddler bed with a side rail for the first part of her sleep, and then in bed with us for the rest of the night. She goes to bed at 7 pm. She wakes up around 530am. She wakes 3-4 times at night, usually (8:30), 11, 1:30, & 4. I hold her and calm her back to sleep with a pacifier at her first waking, generally, and then bring her into bed and nurse her back to sleep for the subsequent wakings.  My DH often is the one to calm her with her pacifier and music at her first waking, and he is always the one to go get her from her room and bring her into our bed when she's ready to nurse and sleep with us. 

 

DH handles any night diaper changes, he is usually the one to put her to bed (she typically eats dinner at 530, nurses around 630, and he lays her down at 7. He became her "bed person" somewhere around 8 months). He brings her to me when she wakes at night. I have always felt with both of my kids our night parenting was tagteamed even though I'm BFing, and it certainly helps me not resent DH. Because 530 comes early for both of us, and he's off to work and I'm alone with the kids for 12 hours. We both are accountable to wake, but we also both do whatever we can to help the other one get back to sleep, and as much sleep as possible, as often as possible. We also take turns taking naps on the weekends while the other takes the kids to play or something.

My baby is 8 weeks old. S/he sleeps in  our bed S/he goes to be around 11:30/12 and wakes up around 7 or 8 S/he wakes up about 2-3 times during the night. When s/he wakes up, I nurse her to go back to sleep. My partner helps with this not at all! (well, he hasn't got the boobs)

 

FWIW: my toddler (he just turned 2) didn't STTN consistently until he nightweaned at 15 months.  He didn't start staying the whole night in his own bed until his sister was born. and that was purely his choice. (she was born when he was 22 months old)
