DD (9 weeks) typically has a really fussy period for a few hours at around 5-9, but then she sleeps pretty much through the night. So it's a trade-off that I'm TOTALLY fine with. Well... she's been kind of over-stimulated the past couple of days and hasn't had naps during the day, really, so she's gone to bed earlier and earlier... which results in her waking up at 3 AM and wanting to par-tay. Tonight she went to bed at 6, which means she's probably going to be awake at 1:00 wide-eyed and bushy-tailed. Would you wake her up at around ten to feed her and then put her back to sleep? I've heard that you're not supposed to wake a sleeping baby, but I have to work tomorrow, and I could really use the extra Z's!

I would cause if I know dd is gonna wake up I can't sleep. Idk why. I hate bro g woken up and stimulated cause I have issues going back to sleep. So it's like better to Stay awake then fall asleep.

I'm the same way! There was a few weeks where I got into the habit of not going to bed until like, 3 am because I wanted to spend time with DH, and by the time we were ready for bed it was like, "What's the point? She's going to wake up soon..." lol. Luckily, she ended up waking up at 10 on her own. Then she clustered all night. Lol. Glad I've finally got nursing while laying down figured out! Though, she seems to enjoy that A LOT! Sometimes I think she's playing me. Haha. The other night, I fed her, put her back in her bassinet, and she started wiggling and chewing on her hands like she was still hungry, so I picked her up and layed down with her and she just passed right out. Lol. Not really hungry I guess, just wanted snuggles!

when i first came home i was told to feed every 3 hours so i was setting alarm and waking baby to feed and change. i think it also helped getting him into a routine having set times to eat. he's 10 months now and since 5-6 month i wont let him nap past 5pm other wise he's up really late
