anything that is not sleeping is A time. So if your LO does not go back to sleep then you count the A from when he woke from the nap.

Thank you for your patience kindness and help. Here it is :

Wake up at 7am
Eat
A till 824. ( so 1.5 hours)
S 830-1015 ( nap 1 is her best nap timewise)
E at 1020
A till 1200
S 12-12:34 shush pat for 30 min then give up and feed
E 1:05pm
A till 230
S 230-305, shush pat for 30 min then give up and feed
E at 335
A 335-5
S 505-530 this is her "catnap"
Cluster 1 at 534
Cluster 2 at 7pm
Bed at 8. Asleep by 815
Dream feed at 1030
Sleeps THROUGH the night till 7, when I wake her up!

So my dh says not to worry bc she is sleeping through the night and this is the most important but I am concerned. Bc how will we transition to 4/4 when the time comes?! Also if she does wake up in middle of the night shush pat works within 10 minutes, so it's that shush pat isn't working during the day! I know Tracy says to drop the cluster feed but again it's working for us and my LO seems to bf beautifully those times... my husband thinks we should just stop shush patting and go to eaeasy but I think that will actually throw her off bc she needs to eat approx every 3 hours. Also if we count shush patting unsuccessfully as A her real A is actually 2 hours ?!?!

Thank you so much!!!!!

Hi again
so as tracy says " once you get it, it changes again"  for the past 3 days this has been where my LO is heading

wake up at 7am
Eat
A till 835. ( so 1.5 hours)
S 830-10/10:15 ( nap 1 is her best nap timewise)
E right after wake up
A till 1130
S 12:15 the shush pat for 30 min then give up and feed
E 12:45pm
A till 230
S 230-315, shush pat for 30 min then give up and feed
E 345 or after nap and shush pat is over
A 335-5
(S 5pm attempt catnap, but she refuses to catnap, so we are dropping this . . . )
dropping the cluster
E at 6
bedtime is 630-  this is WAY earlier, but i think she is exhausted from no catnap
Dream feed at 1030
Sleeps THROUGH the night till 7, when I wake her up!


again nervous as we are heading towards the 4 month regression and how we will transition to tracys 4/4 . . .  .  Also, my LO is trying to roll and we are trying to take one arm out of swaddle so a lot of changes, still loves her paci

Hi there - I'm just stopping by to let you  know that I am unable to respond to your question right now as I have a very bad back. I have flagged up your thread to other mods/admin and hopefully you will get some support soon. If not please start a new thread with your current situation.

I will try to help Honey:). Her first A is 1,5h and you have a good nap. Probably next A is too short, is it 1:15 till 11:30?

Hi!
Sorry about your back!
And we are at consistently 1.5 As. It's actually her first A that is sometimes 1.15 but she still takes a 1.5 hour nap after that short A. It's naps 2 and 3 that are short.
She is now 14 weeks old- could she rest for a 3.5easy?

It looks like she has a tad short night (10.5 instead of 11-12) which is totally fine but on the other hand may encourage her to take a nice longer nap after even a short A. I would think in the criteria of 3/3.5-4h easy but just push her A times to 1:45 and see what happens. She will naturally find a different feeding pattern when her naps will be longer. And yes I would allow her to eat 3.5 especially in the mornings if she is fine with that and I would not wake at 3h mark if she sleeps well and I would keep 3h if she sleeps poorly.
