Eating:  7-8 feedings in 24 hours; every 2.5-3 hours
Number of Naps:  I guess there were technically 4 naps and then after the 8ish feeding was bedtime.
Duration of Naps:  Anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours.
Length of Waketime:  I was still trying to figure out her optimal waketime.  Sometimes it seemed close 50 minutes, but other times it seemed closer to an hour and 10 minutes.
Hours of Sleep at Night:  This was a frustrating month because I knew she was capable of going longer than she was.  There were scattered moments of hope, but most of our nights were broken into 4-4.5 hour chunks.  Things started to lengthen out during week 9 though.  One night she went 9 hours between feedings, so we felt like we would turn a corner soon.


  1. Hey Claire!
    I love your blog....I read it with my daughter, and I now have a son! I wanted your opinion. He is 5 weeks today, and for various reasons, is now formula fed. Our current "schedule" is 7:30, 10:00, 1:00, 4:00, 6:30, 10:00 and then he is still waking about 1:45 and then 5:30ish. I feed him about 4 ounces every time. I'm wondering if he will merge the two feedings on his own and if so, should we then make bigger bottles in the day to make up for the milk he isn't drinking in the night? Thoughts on our "schedule"? Thanks!!

    1. Hey! Your schedule looks great! And yes, in my experience, I think he will merge those two feeds on his own. And hopefully that will happen soon for you! The one thing I might suggest is scooting that 10pm feeding up. Right now, it looks like your "bedtime feed" is at 6:30, so maybe do a feed at 8:30-9 and consider that your "bedtime feed." That might change how his nights happen - it might interrupt his sleep less? Just a thought! Let me know if you try it or if you find a solution that works!
