On an average day, we are up at 5:45/6:00 to eat, and go back to bed for another hour or so (for both of us, most days).... a quick power nap around 9:30 or 10:00, and then another one around 12:30 or 1:00.
Finally, a nice afternoon 'Oprah' nap from 3:30 - 5 here or there.
Our bedtime routine consists of reading until Daddy gets home, then taking "Stelladog" to the dog park, taking a bath, listening to a CD while eating and then falling asleep.
We had been using the Sleep Sheep, but I bought a projector/sound machine today (at the suggestion of a friend, thanks Mary!) that doesn't automatically shut off after 23 or 43 minutes.
Side note: I had noticed that Oliver wakes up immediately when it shuts off during daytime naps in the crib.... hmmm. Fingers crossed this works well to help him stay asleep, and get himself back to sleep. It's very hard when you're still getting up every 2 1/2 - 3 hours. He doesn't need to be changed, or fed, just wants to be rocked back to sleep. And it's even harder because I love cuddling.... ::sigh::
Here's my 5 month old.... crazy how quickly it goes by!
(How did I get a kid with blue eyes and blonder hair each day?)
