    Hi everyone, my wee honeypie is a great sleeper. Shes been sleeping through the night for over a month and I'm not complaining, but over the last few weeks her daytime naps seem to have got longer and more often. She has her last bottle about 11pm, sleeps till 8am, has a bottle, then straight back to sleep till 12 or even 1pm! After that bottle she might nap again, and then sleeps on and off till the 6pm bottle, and then sleeps till the 11pm one. She was on her mat for about half an hour today then was moaning because she wanted to sleep! Even if we go out she sleeps! Is this normal?

    Hey Hun

    If your not 100% speak with the health visitor !

    My baby is a sleeper too and I must say getting the naps in the day is key to helping her sleep at night!

    How old is she?

    You could even bring her bed time earlier. My lo was doing 11- 9 bottle and back to sleep until the afternoon.

    I brought it back to 10, then 9 and now she's in bed at 7:30 each night. Gives hubby and I our evenings back and she's up at 7/8 xxx

    Hi, thanks for your reply! She is just over 14 weeks. I mentioned it to the health visitor a few weeks ago and she wasn't worried at all, basically said I shouldn't be complaining! I am lucky! She has her second set of jabs tomorrow so I might mention it again. She seems to be eating fine and gaining weight so hopefully she is just a good sleeper. I tried her with the Mickey Mouse programme earlier on but she is asleep across my lap now!

    She used to have her last bottle about 12 or 1am but I've brought it forward to around 10.30pm. She starts to stir around 5.30am though! I pop the dummy in and she settles herself but I guess I should try and bring the times forward. When she goes to bed that means bed time for me too though.

    My lo one is 17 wks ! I say go for it see how she gets on she might surprise you...

    I was so scared of braking the pattern lol . Getting used
    To the sleep ad having it snatched
    Away is a shock to the system.. Lol

    It seems as though my lo was having a growth spurt the past few weeks and started waking up in the wee hours . She's back to normal now thank god.

    Good luck with it all xxx

    Same here! Had Chloe in for her second injections on Tuesday and asked about the sleeping but they're not worried. Poor wee soul was crying at bed time, took us 2 hours and some Calpol to calm her down and get her to sleep. She still slept all night and then all morning! I hate immunsation time :cry:

    Thanks! She was a bit unsettled last night but went to sleep and slept right through again so can't complain. Shes just been a wee bit unsettled, but I reckon she might be teething soon as she is dribbling lots and chewing on her hands! She is currentl snoozing away on the sofa and has been for the last 2 and a half hours!
