I know this can be a pretty risky subject,
since a extremely bad patch with jacks (for 3months he wouldnt settle until 3-6am) we cracked down and found what seems like the perfect routine for us, and yes some evenings were running up and down settling him but who doesnt have bad patches.
But ive recently had a few people say he sleeps too much? its now been said to andrew now, and its causing conflict between us as hes not as stubborn as me, routine is as follows...
Upstairs to bed 7pm change story milk etc, in cot by 7.30pm asleep most nights straight away. 8pm latest. May be disturbed around 9 due to a neighbour finishing work, cuddle muslin back in cot then sometimes when we go 2 bed, dont often go into him then as we can switch music on via baby monitor which works 99% of the time.
gets up anytime between 9-10.30am
then has a 1-2hr nap 2hrs after he wakes
and often will search for his muslin and ask to go back up for another hr or so in the afternoon, but not everyday (this nap isnt allways necessary its usually on days hes up nearer 9)
then back to bed at 7pm.
Is he sleeping too much, one family member said it because hes bored not stimulated enough, which is very hurtful when we spend so much time playing with him doing crafts etc! or just giving him a box of toys and watching what he does,
i thought that aslong as he slept and ate well and was happy i was getting it right, now i feel like a bad mum!
