I work in an office where I sit pretty much all day. My active time of day is between 5-8 pm, then I'm back down to relaxing.
I've read a lot of places that the reason newborns have "backward" sleeping patterns is because while we're pregnant, we 'rock' baby to sleep during our active days, and then baby is awake and moving around while we're going to sleep (because we're not moving, and therefore not 'rocking' baby).
When I had DD 3 years ago, I worked at the same job and had the same time pattern, and she started sleeping 10 p-6 a when she was only 6 weeks old. Yes, she would occasionally wake up for a feeding, but only about once a week. She was content sleeping at night.
I'm just wondering if anyone else had something similar to this happen? I am wondering if her sleeping patterns after birth are related to my lack of activity during the day time while I was pregnant.
