Sleep

It seems to me that Lily is getting better at sleeping and at having consistent sleeping patterns.

Now don’t get me wrong, she is NOT much of a napper! But, at least we have a good little routine going.

We finally have night time down. Pajama time anywhere between 7-8pm, we read Goodnight Moon, then she has her last feeding. If she is asleep by 8pm, she will usually sleep until 3am. She will then wake for a feeding, sleep again until 5am when she has another feeding and then will awaken at 7am.

7am is her wake up time. She is ready to go! She is playful and super curious about what the day has for her.I change her diaper, she has a little snack (just a little bit of boob) and we play.

At around 9am she has her big morning feeding and her morning nap. She will usually (is it’s quiet) sleep 30-45 minutes. This gives me just enough time to take a shower and get dressed.

When she wakes, I change her diaper and get her dressed for the day. She has another feeding and out we go on our 1-2 hour walk. She LOVES being outside! When I ask her if she is ready to go out, her arms and legs start moving and swinging like crazy and she gets a big smile on her face.

She will again take another little nap at around 1pm and then another anywhere from 4-6pm until it’s pajama time all over again.

Coming to this routine was NOT easy. The first couple of months were all over the place and I’m sure as Lily grows, her patterns will change but, for right now, I’m enjoying what we have going on. 🙂

I’m including below a picture of Lily in her deepest sleep. She is soooo dreamy!
