We hold our 4 month old in our arms for almost all her naps. Now we are trying to get her to take one nap in her crib and it hasn’t been going great! She cries a lot and takes her about an hour to fall asleep even though I know she’s tired. Any suggestions for making nap time go better?
How long can you get away with a late bedtime (9 or 10 pm) and late wake up time (9 or 10 am) with a baby? That’s the schedule my 6 week old is currently on and she’s sleeping great (7 hours between feedings at night) but I know they say that 7 pm is a better bedtime when they are older.
How often should she be sleeping? How do you manage with breastfeeding?
I want to take a class for three hours a week during my maternity leave. The class will start two weeks after my due date, but is flexible where I could miss a few. I think it’d be nice to have a bit of “me time” scheduled each week, but I’m not sure if I’m over simplifying how hard it would be to get away and have my husband take care of the baby. Thoughts?
