A Day at Our House
11am - Some time between ten and eleven, she becomes unpleasant and needs a nap. Sometimes we really have to work at it to get her to sleep.
Noon - Wakes from nap to eat some lunch. Goes back to sleep very easily.
3pm - Wakes to eat and is happy for several more hours.
5pm - Becomes unpleasant if not interacting with her.
6pm - Dinner Time
7pm - nap
9pm - After the feeding closest to 9pm we start our bedtime routine. We eat, take and play in the bath, put PJ's on, chatter for about 20 minutes. As soon as we become unpleasant, we swaddle and place her in her bed. She normally falls asleep within 10 minues without fussing.
If she stirs in the night enough to wake me up, I gently rest my hand on her or jiggle her until she stops moving about. If I dont catch her in time and she comes unswaddled, I reswaddle her.
I let her fuss, but I dont let her cry. I see no point in leaving her to cry all alone in her bed. It is not her fault we dont undersand what she is trying to tell us... so I hold her and try to comfort her. I change positions I'm holding her until something works. Sometimes I can just talk her out of crying by smileing really big and talking super happy to her.
Kamrynn is a great baby!
