5.5 mo, Nightwakings after nap lenghtening
« on: April 30, 2018, 06:59:52 am »
Hi , my ds is almost 5.5 months. I exclusively bf when he wakes up from naps and top up one hour later. He had some short nap problems but they are almost over now,  thanks to becj86's wonderful advices to extend A times constantly. He needs longer A times than the average. He has 3hour A times now and naps two times, usually one 2 hours and one 1.5 he transtioned to two naps most days now. He never sttn However nightwakings really increased after naps lenghtening. He wakes almost every two hours at night now. Average easy is:
E 6.15 plus top up one hour later
A three hours
S 9.15 -11.15
E 11.15 plus top up one hour later
A three hours
S 14.15 -15.45
E 15.45 plus top up one hour later
A three hour
E before bt
Bt 18.45
Df 22.00
He sleeps independently but not when he nightwakes, if he doesnt stop crying at night I bf, like three times until morning.other than bf we try to shht pat of use white noise tı soothe him back to sleep at night.
Does he sleep too much in the naps now? Is he ut with long naps now.He always had low sleep needs.I'm very sleep deprived now and looking forward to your advice.
Thank in advance.

The day is looking great :)

Can you write out when he's waking at night?

I wonder if you've tried not doing the DF?
