Tallulah always woke up during the night for about 2 feeds but last week she was waking every 1.5 hours. I wasn't taking that very well...I turned into a mama zombie. So I decided to get serious with this sleep thing as last week I bought some gripe water as Lula was waking herself up with wind and instead of feeding her every time she woke I rocked her back to sleep and if she woke up within 30 minutes I would then feed her. She was a pretty small bub and I was worried she wasn't putting on enough weight so I think I just fed her whenever she cried and she was using it as a soother during the night.
So far this week it has worked quite well she is going down most nights around 7:30pm and waking at 11pm (when I usually go to bed I feed her then!) then 3am then 5am for a feed! I'd love to cut out the 3am one that would be bliss! So I am working on it this week. I also bought a Love Me Baby Swaddle suit today which I am excited to test out tonight. One of the ladies in my Mums & Bubs group swear by it. We will see!
Yay for sleep. Its probably the one thing I miss the most from my pre-baby days. I really loved bed and sleeping in but lately I just hate going to bed as I know its going to be broken sleep. I know it will get better!
Week 21 was been pretty cruisey, we've had some lunch dates, done a spot of shopping and had a delightful picnic in Hyde Park. This morning we had a delish breakfast with Ross- yay for long weekends!
