  • some babies change there sleeping pattern often, so times its day by day. then there are the babies who sleep all night long since birth. my son is one who changes his sleep pattern all the time and he goes to bed the same time every night. its like some days he will sleep all night then others he will wake up at 3am other nights at 5am.

  • As the previous poster stated, babies this age will change their sleep patterns. It's completely normal, and they didn't spoil her or anything by holding her while she slept. Around 4 months you can expect to see a sleeping schedule.

  • When my LO gets off schedule, to get her back on I wake her up at the times that she should be getting up. They might be a little more tired than normal or more cranky, but it fades as the schedule returns to normal. Lots of babies change their schedules regularly, yours may be doing that

  • Oh, honey, NOTHING about babies is easy! The only schedule they will stay on is one they choose, so just follow her cues and watch for signs of when she's tired. That's the only way to find a successful bedtime schedule. It probably doesn't have anything to do with her being with grandparents, little ones just like to switch things up. It seems to be in their natures.
