I have a lovely 4 months old baby, Lily. I am breastfeeding her only. since about 1 months she has always wanted to go to bed at 20:00. (she would fall asleep then and have a very long "nap" so we decided this was her time to go to bed. So I bath her at 19:30 and start feeding her at about 20:00 and she would fall asleep on my breast while finishing eating. Then I put her to bed. But they recommended me to feed her one more time before I go to bed, at around 23:30-00:00 so she doesn't do the "longest stretch" of sleep from 20:00 until whatever but after 00:00.
Doing like this, she is doing really well, I feed her at about 00:00 and then she wakes for feeding at about 04:30-05:00 and then she goes back to sleep until 8. which I think is really good.
But my question is if is this the most natural way of doing this? when I´m going to bed she is asleep, so I take her really carefully and she feeds pretty much asleep and then I put her down and she carries on sleeping (we sleep "together" she has her little cot as an extention of our bed)
Should I leave her to sleep and let her do her "long stretch" of sleep from 8 until she wants or is it good to carry on doing it like I am doing?
Quick help is much appreciated!!!
Thanks a lot!!!
