Hi all, my little boy has just turned 10 months. We have a great daily routine and bed time routine but he hasn't quite cracked the 'through the night' sleep thing. We've had a couple of one-offs where he has gone from 7pm til 6am but generally he is still waking anywhere between 10pm and 1am for a feed.
He eats really well during the day and gets plenty of milk (formula) and I have already introduced whole milk into his diet.
His routine is generally this:
Wake around 6.30 has 4-5 ounces of milk. An hour later breakfast 4/5 ounces milk mixed with weetabix and banana.
Between 9 am and 11am he usually naps (not always 2 hours as I am trying to cut this down to encourage more sleep at night).
Wakes around 11am might have a little snack (fruit or biscuits) and some water to drink.
12.30 lunch. A 'meal' plus dessert! Includes pasta, meat, veg etc whatever we have cooked recently.
Somewhere between 1.30 and 3pm he naps again for about a hour. He used to sleep 2 hours up until 4pm but he has recently needed to go to sleep earlier and so I make sure he is up and about again by 3.30 at the very latest. He will then have a little drink of water.
4.15-4.30 tea. Smaller portion meal, sometimes scrambled egg and toast or a bit of cheese. Also a little bit of yogurt. Drinks water with his tea.
We then play or he opens and closes the washing machine while I prepare dinner for me and hubby!
Bath time at 6.30 and bottle at 7 (about 6/7 ounces) the he's usable in bed by 7.30 at the latest.
We were 'dream feeding' at about 10.30pm for a while but we stopped waking him for this a couple of weeks ago. Like I said he has gone through a couple of nights but it is still unpredictable.
What are your routines? How did you crack the full night sleep?
Any stories or suggestions shared would be appreciated!
