Trying something new...

Today I tried something new.

4am: eat (go right back to bed... which took me until 5am to do)

7am: eat
(she went right back to sleep and slept until 10am)

10am: eat
11:30am: nap

1pm: eat
3pm: nap

4pm: eat
6pm: nap

7pm: eat, then bath
8pm: bed

I am going to wake her up at 10pm for a last feeding because she screamed bloody murder at her 7pm feeding. Then, she should wake up at around 3-4am again for another feeding, and do it all over again tomorrow.

I NEED a schedule. I hate going solely on when she "wants" to eat because I don't know if she wants to eat, or if she just wants a soother, or if she wants to cuddle or what. With a BIT of a schedule, I can at least figure it out. Not only that, but otherwise she ends up eating at 6pm and messes up the whole dynamic for the evening and it is too frustrating to organize. But this worked for us tonight. Other than her 7pm feeding but she's tired so that could be it. Hopefully she sleeps until 10pm. Fingers crossed!!!!!!

SUCCESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (for now haha)


  1. If you're planning on waking her for a 10pm feed, try a dream feed. Just pick her up and nurse her - she will most likely stay asleep and nurse, then you can lay her back down. I did this with my last 2 and it worked great!

  2. Aww. Good luck with the schedule! We ended up doing a loose schedule with D but Kai wanted nothing to do with time frames. He would eat when he wanted it and no other time. lol


I love comments!
