James is generally waking for a feed at 1am, but takes 1-3hrs to go back to sleep. Jen was worse than this. HOW LONG Do your lo's take to settle after a night feed?

It varies,anything from 30mins to an hour.He's now 13 weeks but in the first few weeks he took at least 1-1/2 hrs.

Emmet goes straight back to sleep, Isaac used to too but Jonah took much longer and looking back, I actually think he was still hungry.

I assume you do the usual things like low light, not chatting :giggle: etc. If he's not in a sleeping bag it could be a temperature difference of going back into his bed?

Very early days Isobella was a night baby she would get up to play in the middle of the night it wasn't for a while til she settled down but we always just keept to the same rule of staying up stairs which I think helped x

Generally 15-30 mins after a feed, sometimes straight away, very occasionally an hour or so. It's normally wind and/or hunger that stops him.

Straight away. William wakes for a feed, on feeds for maybe 10 mins at most and is asleep before he goes back to his bed x

They don't really develop a body clock until 6 - 8 weeks so at the moment he doesn't know that it's night. He's just in a routine of waking up, feeding, and being alert for a while. Hopefully if you can stick with it for the next couple of weeks he will start to realise that night time is for sleeping. They usually have one long stretch of sleep (6-8 hours?) so I suppose it depends what is happening before and after he wakes up.

Longest he has slept is around 4 hrs. Jen always took ages to resettle at nmight, so im fearful he will be the same! Hes in the dark in a sleeping bag and obvs v quiet, so hopefully he will eventually get the message its not play time!
