A welcoming change
Posted by: Sharmila Rajah, 8-Nov-2007
Yes, it's finally taking place. Ayanna in the fourth week of her second month is gradually easing into a new sleep pattern. This past week, Ayanna has gotten herself accustomed to waking up for a feed just twice, once at 3 and another at 5. It's a very welcoming change for mummy. I no longer walk around the house feeling like a zombie.
Breastfed newborns eat more frequently than bottle-fed babies, every 2 hours as in Ayanna's case. So somewhere between three and six months, breastfed babies could begin to display more established sleeping patterns.
It seems like the start of something good.
