Preemie EASY???
« on: April 05, 2017, 18:48:56 pm »
Hey, my 7 week old was born 6 weeks early. He is having a hard time staying awake for Activity times during the day. He wakes around every 3 hours to Eat but often times he barely wakes up enough to stay awake for his Activity time. I have tried bouncing him, laying him on his stomach, putting a wet cloth on his face, changing his diaper, but once I complete whatever task it is he falls right back to sleep. Then at night he doesn't sleep at all he is very awake during the night. HELP PLEASE!!!

so his adjusted age is one week yes?  A time is very short at that age.  at night make sure to keep things dark if at all possible so that he will learn the difference.
