For all of you who are doing or who have done Babywise, I have a question. Anniston is pretty much on a schedule during the day that starts at 8am (8-11-2-5)...even if I try to alter her schedule, she somehow always seems to get back on this one. When I put her down at 8pm whether she has awake time or not, she gets into the deepest sleep EVER, and I cannot usually wake her at 10 or 11 for a late evening feed. Also, when she goes to bed at 8, she sleeps 7 or 8 hours, but when I wake her up for her late evening feed, she only sleeps about 4 hours or so (aka: last night).
SO, I know the logical thing to do would be to just let her go to sleep at 8, but I have a hard time going to bed at that time. The result is me still feeling like I'm waking up in the middle of the night...because I am (3-4am). I know this isn't that big of a deal and that I really should just be grateful that she's sleeping well, but I was just wondering if any of you had children who did this. And, if you did...what did you do??
I also forgot to add that after I feed her at 3 or 4, she barely sleeps when I put her back down, so I feel like I'm messing up her first feed of the day since that first morning feed is more likely to be inconsistent as she starts sleeping longer. I eventually would love for her to sleep from 8-8 (a dream for now, ha) but not sure if I should keep trying for the late evening feed and move it back as she sleeps longer? Am I thinking too much?? I think I am. I'm kind of embarrassed that I even just wrote all of this, but I'm just tired of waking up at 4 and not sleeping well thereafter! Maybe I should just suck it up and go to sleep at 8...I just love spending those last couple of hours hanging out with Stan. hmmm
And yes, I was bored the other night and started playing around with the look of the blog. One thing led to another, and somehow I wound up with a dorky signature. Humor me, ha...It is all subject to change...
Hmmm, maybe this all would be resolved if I would just go to bed instead of playing on the computer?
