....aaaaand now she's wide awake at 1:40 am. This is potentially problematic.

Has she doubled her birth weight yet? I know they say if you keep a baby up during the day they will sleep better at night, but I've found that it makes it worse bc then the baby gets over tired and cranky and fussy and then fights sleep....what I found to be helpful is letting them sleep during the day as much as they want/need but not real late into the evening ....also, doing baths and massages right before bed time helped with all 4 of mine....she will find her groove before ya know it....also keep in mind that sleeping over 4hrs is actually considered sleeping through the night for small infants ...

She has her own little schedule already and it's a good one!

She wakes up around 6:45 or 7, eats and plays and then naps again on and off from 9 to about 4 pm. Eating and diapers in between naps of course. Then at 4, we usually go hang out in the nursery with the lights low and no sounds going (the house gets really active around that time, so she can get over stimulated pretty easily, then she won't settle at night.) Then, she naps from about 6 to 7:45 pm. Then bath time at 8, a massage, swaddled, nursed, and bed time at 9...then she sleeps anywhere from two hours to five hours. on and off through the night. :) She's pretty predictable!
