For the past two nights my little squirrel has slept for seven hours! It was seven broken hours, but I’ll take that verses the four or so that we’ve been getting for the past month.
What we’ve decided to do:
- keep him awake as long as possible during the evening (recommended by Tabetha)
bathe him and lotion him up
dress him in fleece pajamas
wrap him in a fleece swaddler
feed him until he tires out
play his seahorse until he falls asleep (recommended by Melissa)
As he gets older and his feeding/nap schedule changes, we will make some changes as well- but for now, this seems to do the trick!
