8:45 p.m. Bedtime
Eating: 5 feeding periods (4 bottles, 2 solids) in 24 hours.
Number of Naps: 3
Duration of Naps: Anywhere from 1.5-2 hours.
Length of Waketime: An hour and 45 minutes is the norm. Occasionally if I see sleepy cues a bit earlier than that, I'll put her down. Also, if it's getting towards the end of the day and I'm needing to stretch her schedule, sometimes it'll be closer to 2 hours.
Hours of Sleep at Night: 11-11.5 hours of sleep.
-We moved to more of a "four hour schedule" even though it's not technically all the way to four hours yet. We found that 5 bottles a day was causing her to snack and refuse the bottle. She does much better with just 4 bottle feedings.
-After a couple weeks of rice cereal once a day, we moved to doing it twice a day (when we changed to the four hour schedule).
-Started offering a sippy cup of water after some meals.
