5 month old sleep worsening
« on: June 17, 2019, 13:32:14 pm »
Hi!

I was hoping for some support around my now 5 months old recent sleep. She was born a month early so I guess adjusted age 4 months. She still BF every 3-3.5 hours and only wakes up once around the early mornings for a feed and back down. I would say she is an Angel baby. She’s also low birth weight (born at 3lbs) at around the 3% range.

She’s been on easy since around 5 weeks. I also haven’t sleep trained yet. Getting ready to start but not sure when bc her sleep has gone haywire.

She was on a 7-7 EASY for awhile before all of this.

EASY from last couple of days

Saturday:
WU 9:12 (she had a late night because of DS preschool graduation so she was definitely overtired going to bed at 8 after an almost 3 hour A time)
E 9:15
A
S 10:57-2:08 pm (A 1:45)
E 2:10
A
S4:08-4:40 pm (2hrs; wouldn’t resettle)
E 5:15
A
E top up
A bedtime routine
BT 7:02 pm (we aimed for 6:45 but she was resisting sleep; she woke up a half hour afterwards indicating OT)

NW 1:17 (nursed)
NW 5:45- 7:20 am

WU 8:19 am
E 8:20
A
S 10:10-10:46 am (A 1:51; didn’t resettle)
A
E 11 am
S 11:10- 1:35 pm (fell asleep after nursing which isn’t usual for her)
A
E 2:45 pm
A
S 3:38-5:18 pm (A 2:03; woke at 35 mark but took 10 minutes to fall asleep)
E 6 pm
A Bath and routine
E top up
BT 7:14 pm (woke up after only 20 minutes and then again at an hour)

NW 4:30 (BF)

(Got her asleep at 6 then slept until 7 am)

I do realize the weekend was off for her but her bedtime resistance and NW in the first couple of hours after bedtime have been happening for a week now. I had her on A times of 2 hours on a good nap and shaved it to 1.45 when she short napped. She gets fussy around the 1.5-1.75 mark so I was following cues for naps.

Now with all of this I’m clueless if she’s OT or if she needs a bump in A time.

Bumping because she just did a 20 minute nap and she’s getting harder to put down without crying

Edit: she is not going down for her last nap then wakes up overtired

Please I’m losing my mind
