Our gorgeous little chunk is 8 weeks old.
He is a chilled out little baby as his big brother was at his age, he very rarely cries. In fact he will only cry if he is overdue a feed or overtired. So, if he cries and has been fed recently and has a clean nappy then I put him down for a little nap and that usually sorts him out.
He is starting to get himself into a routine:
He generally feeds every 3 hours during the day and night. Occasionally he will go slightly longer and sometimes it will be less time. One night this week he wanted to feed every 2-2.5 hours and it was a killer!
His sleeping patterns are fairly consistent. We haven’t fully sorted his bedtime routine after his evening bath as we have both him and Spencer to put down. However after the disruptions of Christmas is over, we will have a more solid bedtime routine for him. At the moment, we put Spencer to bed and then take Coen downstairs with us. He either feeds then falls asleep or sits quietly with us while we watch tv. We go upstairs at about 9:30 to get ready to bed and so we are settled for 10pm when Coen is due his feed. After his feed, we put him down for bed and he settles instantly then will wake every 3 hours for a feed, his last feed being 7am, this means we can pretty much get sleep until about 9:30am!
I read that at his age he should be able to sleep for 4-5 hours at a time at night. This is just not happening, I wonder if he wakes every 3 hours from habit?!
All is good with me. I’m kind of looking forward to Christmas being over so I can get myself into a routine with exercising again.
