Sleep Pattern

My baby goes down every night around 7-8pmish every night, he also wakes up between 3:30am-4:30am to eat, and has been going back to sleep and then waking up for the day at 6:00- 7:00am. However the weird thing is, for the past couple of weeks he'll be awake for an hour after his 3:30-4isham feeding..maybe it's that i change his diaper before feeding him i dunno, but i find this this normal?

  • Sounds pretty normal to me, my dd has pretty much the exact same schedule. You can try skipping the diaper change (as long as he hasn't had a bowel movement). I know that changing dd's diaper wakes her up like nothing else.

  • No I don't think so I think that he is becoming more aware of being awake. I would not worry and try to use this time to bond with him my one month old has been staying up for a couple hours now already little surprising cause he is so young.... he has bee alert lately... I think that that is all your little one is doing.

  • How old is you baby? He may just be getting used to you getting up with him at that time so he is starting to think it is okay to stay awake a little bit longer. Depending how old he is you could start feeding him some cereal before he goes to bed. I started my kids at about 2 months old.

  • my youngest is 3 mos old and she started to go to bed at 9pm when she was 2 mos old and just started sleeping til 5am and then it started getting later and later now she will sleep til 8am eat and go back to sleep to 10am. which is great cuz her and my oldest daughter both get up at 10am every morning which gives me my quiet time after hubby leaves for work at 830am

  • babies change their sleep schedule a lot, so this could be normal.. but you could always call your doctor if you are concerned. They have nurses on staff for questions like this.
