The baby sleep problem
I have a 5 week old son, I am wanting to try and lengthen out his sleeps at night and also help his sleep patterns during the day.
Daytime - He has days where he will go down easily each time and sleep for 2-2.5 hrs. Other days he doesn't want to sleep & will cry once put in cot and when he does sleep may only be for 1 hour at time. He want to feed each time in between also.
Nights - We are doing bath/feed/bed and he has been sleeping for up to 4 hrs just after this, then his sleeps can be anywhere from 1.5-3 hr stretches, more often than not 1.5hrs after that long stretch. He wants to feed each time also and doesn't accept dummy. He is swaddled.
Obviously he is still very small and I don't expect to have him in a routine now, but just wondering if there are any suggestions I can try and be putting in place now to help lengthen out these sleeps and get good habits in place. He does go down well after each feed at night.
