Re: 8 week old - eating and sleeping question
If you weren't obviously troubled by your baby's routine, I'd think you were bragging. I mean, 8 weeks old and only waking 1-2 times at night? And taking 3 hour-long naps during the day plus some short bonus naps? Where do I sign up?
Seriously, your baby's routine sounds wonderful. At that age, my girls would generally take about 3 naps, each an hour or so long, but they were up 5-8 times a night.
One way to encourage slightly longer naps is to put your LO in a swing or a sling. My girls always napped longer when moving than when lying in a crib.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
