Sleeping a long stretch, but not when I want it to happen!

    AgnesForbes, I still haven't figured out how to shift her sleeping, so I can't help.
    I've read about slowly moving her bedtime back, from 6pm (in your case) to 615pm, then 630pm, etc. Try that maybe?

    My little one really resists naps and I just realized she really cannot fall asleep on her own so my focus now is to get her on a napping routine and teaching her how to fall asleep on her own. I have shifted the dreamfeed to 11pm though.

    At first, I tried moving bedtime to 9pm, but because she's such a poor napper, she's exhausted by the time 530/6pm rolls around.

    I think teaching her to fall asleep on her own will help her drop the night wakings (when she's ready). These 2 nights, she's been waking up at 230am, 330am ... then around 530 (there may have been a waking at 4-ish, but I don't remember) and I've been finding her struggling to get back to sleep, with her limbs going crazy. I try not to feed her but the one time that I do, I find she doesn't seem very hungry.

    I don't swaddle her because she just wakes herself up when trying to get out of the swaddle.
