Mine is 3 months old and he tries to sleep more now than he did when he was just born. His schedule is,7pm-7am sleeping with a few ups and downs at 7am bottle back down at 10:30am until about noon. Then up until 2pm. Sleeps until 5-6pm. then back down at 7p.m. Is that right? It started when I put him on his tummy to sleep. If I try to lay him on his back to sleep he cry until you flip him over. I would have thought that he would be awake more.

You are very lucky! My 2 1/2 month old sleeps from about 7 p.m. to midnight and then up and down all night until about 5 a.m. My baby doesn't do great on his back either, but I am too nervous to turn him over.

I did lots of tummy time. My lo has a flat head so I wanted him to lift his head before I turned him. He'll be 4 months on the 19th of March. I feel that I have been very lucky with him. He is a good baby I am scared to have another.....The next might not be as good as my first. Anyhow does the sleeping schedule sound right to anyone?

My ds will be 4 months March 21st, our kids are only 2 days apart. How cool is that? Your schedule is awesome! I have been wanting to put mine on one lately. He goes to bed at around 11 pm now after a bottle and sleeps until around 4am has another bottle and back down until maybe 8:30am and he is up for the day. Between 8:30 and 12 he might take a 30 minute nap and has another bottle, then in the afternoon he might sleep 1 or 2 hours. Has another bottle around suppertime and after his bath he sleeps a few hours in the evening and then it's 11pm again and he goes to bed after his bottle.

Mandee25 that was the same schedule I had up until 2 weeks ago. Thats why I think something is wrong? Anyone else have this problem?

HI, my son will be 3 months next week, and he just started sleeping a full 8 hours in the night. It's great and dh and I are ecstatic about only getting up once. He was getting up several times every night. Anyway Wellis-- your schedule sounds pretty good. Ours is similar, ds sleeps from 8:30-9pm till usually 4-5 and then has a bottle and then is back to sleep till 7-8. Then he usually is ready for a nap around 10am and sleeps for an hour or so. Then usually is ready for another nap around 2-3 sleeps for a little while, and then is up around 5 and starts pa__sing out again around 7-8. Lately when he starts falling asleep for his naps I put him down in his crib and he only sleeps for about a half hour and then cries, I wish he'd sleep longer for his naps. He always does so much better when he naps well during the day.

Hi Wellis10! That sounds right although all babies are different. Mine was quite similar to yours. He's 9 months now and sleeps more than ever! His schedule is 7pm to 6:30am, then nap at 9:30-11:30, then again from 1:30-3:30... He started sleeping this pattern at around 4 months. I have to say I miss him because he sleeps so much! But I know he needs it so I just come on here all the time!!!
