Sleep…a thing of the past. I LOVE my sleep! One of the most frustrating things about being pregnant was using the bathroom ten million times a night! Now that the baby is here, my bathroom trips have lessoned, but I am up even more! I am SUPER thankful for Maisie and we still love each other. Don’t worry! I just miss uninterrupted sleep.
Justin and I would like some advice though. Here is Maisie’s sleep schedule at night:
-She eats between 9 and 10pm
-Sleeps till 11pm or 12am
-Awake till around 1 or 2am! WIDE AWAKE! And she is a bit fussy during these times. Will NOT sleep.
-Finally falls asleep around 1 or 2am and doesn’t wake up till around 6am for a feeding and goes right back to bed till 9am.
So the question. Justin and I are night owls and we don’t mind that she is up late (because she sleeps in late). But we would LOVE to have her awake fussy hour NOT in between her deep sleeping schedule. How do we get her to sleep earlier? Is this even possible with a not yet four week old? Should we just patiently wait for this to happen? Should we try to keep her up after her 9pm or 10pm feeding in hopes that she sleeps after the 11pm or 12am feeding? Is this all too confusing? I am confused myself so if this confuses you, I’m sorry, but that is my life story right now.
So basically, the short version of my question… How do we get Maisie to go to sleep for the night at 12am? We would LOVE for her to have her fussy time earlier and sleep at her normal fussy time at 12am. Hope that makes sense!
Please give me advice all you people who read my blog and never post! I know you are out there with good advice! So give it!!! Oh and I may or may not take your advice, but I at least want to hear what your ideas and thoughts are! I am desperate! Thanks!
And for taking the time to read my blog here are some pics of Maisie in her precious state of sleep!
Cute little thing, huh? We think so! I know that it is normal for newborns to be up a lot and we are even lucky she sleeps as much as she does. I’m just curious if there is a way to rearrange her sleep schedule a bit, or if that just happens naturally. Thanks for any input!
