She sleeps!

Postby mabo » Tue Apr 20, 2010 9:37 am

Since Caitlin was about 5 weeks old she's been having 45 minute naps every day apart from when she is in the sling. She also still wakes regularly 2 (sometimes 3) times a night but has recently been waking up in the middle of the night and is just awake :shock: she's not hungry, just awake and loves to show off her new vocal skills :waiting:
One night I decided to put her on her tummy so she'd get rid of her energy quicker and she promptly fell asleep! I stayed awake for the next 15 minutes, shining my phone light in her face every other minute to make sure she wasnt face down :giggle:

Anyway, gradually since that night she has let me know that she prefers to sleep on her stomach by kicking her legs whenever I put her on her back so she is now a tummy sleeper. And the last couple of days though she's suddenly been having 2 hour morning naps!!! :wine: I couldn't believe it the first time - I kept going upstairs to check up on her but she looks soooooo comfy with her 2 miffy's squashed next to her face :widesmile:

yay
Kieran and Anna were both tummy sleepers from the go, they would just never have settled on their backs.

Hope she continues to sleep well for you x

Bless her! Poppys a tummy sleeper to, she won't settle on her back. Everytime I put her on her back she'd shout in protest and just flip over anyway. :giggle:

I did try putting her on her tummy earlier - as Joshua was on his tummy from about 7 weeks :wink: - but she would just scream, and she always used to settle for her naps fine on her back - its just the waking up after 45 mins that was a pain (as lets face it, after checking here and FB, there are not many minutes left to do much :giggle: )

That said, she doesnt sleep any better at night and still wakes at 2 and 5 :roll:
