E.A.S.Y. Forum / Re: Don't know where to start with the 3rd baby
« Last post by 1stimer on August 01, 2020, 23:25:13 pm »
Kate! Good to see you here again..I believe weve chatted on the forums multiple times!! Thank you for the advice! The info IS overwhelming and I feel more pressure with this guy being my third...like I should be able to do everything one handed and know what he's thinking before he thinks it.  I think him being mostly on bottles (that I'm pumping) makes me hyper aware of how much and how often he's eating. With my last he was EBF and I just put him to breast whenever he wanted...with pumping I see my stockpile decrease, and he just wants to snack and not finish bottles...it's a little stressful. Luckily my supply is great so I don't have to worry but....I worry nonetheless.

Congratulations on your baby
Now remember your baby is at week -1!  So what it is doing is totally right.
There is a plethora of information and it can make us feel we *should* be doing X or y, but the reality is the information is an average for term babies, not ones with a different journey. I had a bigish term baby 17years ago... He was still feeding every 2-3 hours at 6weeks.
If you look at your baby's fist and that is about the size of his tummy, so 2oz may not seem much but it's an ok amount and sadly you might hope for longer sleep, but at week -1 2 hours is pretty good going and falling asleep feeding is normal.
Really the only thing you could do better is worry less and remember the first 3 months (or in your case 4 months) are pretty much when the single most important thing is not the routine, but the bonding.

I did EASY with our first two. Our third just turned 3 weeks and I feel lost. Our oldest two are 6 and 9 so it's been a while. This little guy is a premie and was delivered via C-section at 36 weeks because I developed cholestatis and he had Hydrops while I was pregnant that we miraculously cured!! So his feeding schedule is nurse for 20 minutes if possible, give a bottle, and then I pump for 10 minutes. This is what our pediatrician told us to try because his latch is still wonky and she doesn't want him burning a ton of calories. We are doing 3 oz every 2 hours feeding and hoping that will stretch his night sleeps, but so far we are still on every 2 hours at night. We are having problems with him finishing a bottle in one sitting. He will usually fall asleep so I'll change him and then he's ready to finish the bottle. At night he usually takes 2-2.5 oz and falls asleep and I'll leave him be. sometimes when I burp him, it wakes him up and then we are kind of at a loss for what to do since I feel like he should really be sleeping more than he does. He sometimes bhas several stretches a day where hebusbup for 2 hours . Occasionally he won't finish or fall asleep and he's really unsettled until he either feeds more or just passes out. I'm not sure where to start with his easy at this point since we've got a lot going on. Help!!!! I've been out of the newborn game for too long and I feel more list than I did with my first!!

E.A.S.Y. Forum / Catnapping all day
« Last post by Littlelyly on July 24, 2020, 06:28:46 am »
My LO is 13w old and has been Easy since birth. He slept and eat really good for the first 2mo and suddenly now he catnapping all day and wake up more at night. I tried Easy 4 on him since 1,5mo like Sleep for 2.5hr and wake for 1.5hr. At night he only need to be fed around 2am and sleep straight until 5:30am

Early from July until now, he only can sleep 30mins to 45mins and i tried to increase A time when he sleep for 45mins and even decrease A time if he sleep for 30mins but its still the same. Now i have to let him breastfeed to let him sleep back because he wont take the pacifier. I really dont know where i did it wrong

Hereby is his schedule yesterday for example:
Wake 7:16am
Sleep 8:35am
(Then he woke up at 9:21 but i gave him my breast so he sleep back until 11am)

Wake 11:00
Sleep 12:15
(Then he woke up at 12:47 again..)

Wake 2:47pm
Sleep 4:03

Wake 4:38
Sleep 5:45pm
 
Wake 6:00
Night sleep 7:06pm

There was a day before that at night he only sleep for 10h44p and i put him to the first nap early and his wake time is 1h6m and he sleep straight for nearly 3hr not wake up.

I really dont know how long he can stay awake anymore. I tried for the whole month but nothing works. Is there anyone can help me to get through this nightmare :( thank you a bunchhhh

Our little one is 9,5 weeks now. I try to keep up a 3,5 hour routine during the day but itís starting to get a bit messy. He easily falls asleep after an awake time of about 1h 30 min in the wrap and i can put him into the stroller relatively quickly. But if I put him down on his back he wakes up after 45 minutes and usually canít resettle. If I put him on his tummy he sleeps 2-3 hours (if I donít wake him up earlier). I donít have the baby whisperer book at hand atm but I think I remember that a baby shouldnít sleep longer stretches than 2 hours during the day because it affects night sleep???
He does indeed not sleep well at night and now I have our toddler in the room too because we are staying at my parents for the summer. I donít want the baby to wake up the whole house and especially the toddler!! Therefore i feed the baby when he starts making noises in his crib but Iím not sure if that is smart. He ends up feeding every 1,5-3 hours that way.  If I wait it out he usually starts making lots of noise but doesnít necessarily cry. He grunts and moans. I think he also has a lot of gas in his belly which is uncomfortable.
Could it be that napping on his tummy during the day is so much nicer which is the reason he doesnít sleep well on his back at night? Any wise words are appreciated.
My toddler is also getting more difficult to get to bed at the moment because of the new situation...

Sleeping For Toddlers / 20 month old crazy night time- any help appreciated!
« Last post by rosiebh on July 10, 2020, 05:32:53 am »
Hi,
I wondered if anyone had any ideas on how to help?
My 20 month old day routine is pretty set in stone but what happens at night is anyoneís guess!

The last 24 hrs...
Breakfast And milk - 7 am
Snack - 10.30 am (usually fruit and breadsticks)
Lunch - 12
Nap 12.30-2
Snack - 3 ish
Tea - 5
Bedtime routine starts 6.15 (bath, stories)
Bed and asleep 6.45-7

Itís his night wakings that are driving me mad! Iím so exhausted as I also have a 4 year old (who is an amazing sleeper - 6.45-6.30 ish but doesnít get up until 7) My 20 month old is a different story!
Last night he was awake 1-2.30 am and then again at 5 and was awake until 6.30 am!
He wonít be left alone in these periods and so I sit with him with a hand on his back. Sometimes heís awake 2-4 am, then up at 6am, sometimes he sleeps until 4.30 for the day if weíre really Lucky!
He has a pretty active day as heís outside in the park most mornings with his brother and in the garden or playing in our local park in the afternoon.
I just donít know what to do. Heís never really slept through and weíve followed baby whisperer EASY plan since he was about 4 months and his bedtime routine since about 6 weeks old.
Heís always napped well in the day but his night time is crazy!
Any ideas??
Thank you!

E.A.S.Y. Forum / 16 week old up between 8-10p
« Last post by MamaCoffee on July 06, 2020, 13:42:16 pm »
Hi there,

My 16 week old baby girl has been touchy with narrow windows to do anything right! We currently have a routine but she gets up after ďbedtimeĒ. Wondering if Iím pushing a 4 hour routine too quickly on her or her bedtime is too late? Any help would be appreciated! Unfortunately she cannot put herself to sleep anymore. We do our nap/bedtime ritual and she cries for 5-7 minutes while being held but falls asleep. Routine below:

Up 7a
E: 715
A
S: 840-11 (has been waking up 35-40 mins into nap but then puts herself to sleep again after 20 mins or so)

E:11
A
S: 1250/1-3p

E:3
A
S: 450-540

A: bath time at 630 with dad
E: 7-730
S: 740/750p

She then wakes up 40 minutes later or at 930pm. If at 930pm dad feeds her and we donít do a dream feed and she sleeps thru the night. If wakes up at 40 minutes she gets upset if we try to go in and help her transition and sometimes cries so much we end up feeding her to calm her down or put her in swing. If we feed her before 9pm we then do a dream feed at 11pm and she sleeps through the night.

Hi All,

My 23 month old has just started daycare. Until now, my toddler was watched by my mother while my husband and I worked. We decided that it is time for my child to start daycare since I am expecting and I wanted my toddler to be around other kids.

My kid was very routine - napped around 1230 for 1.5 to 2 hours, and went to bed every night around 7:30. Would wake up the next morning around 8, 8:30. I never had problems putting her to sleep until now - whenever its time for bedtime she starts crying for me and my husband and literally wakes every 10 minutes to check if we are around. We would put her to bed around 7 and she would call for us every 10 minutes until 12 in the morning. My husband had to sleep in the floor in her room!

We feel that she is going through a really tough time starting daycare and she feels that her mommy and daddy abandoned her. Does anyone have any suggestions for what we could do?

TIA!
