Merry Christmas 2017

A very Merry Christmas from our family to yours. One of our favorite events this year was my dream vacation--visiting New York City. We absolutely loved it.

Chronicles of a Babywise Mom

I will be taking this week off of blogging. I will still be hanging out on social media, so check me out there this week. Also, as always, for this break, I want to point you in the direction of some great oldies. These come from May of 2012. Click on the image to visit the post.

2017 Goals Accountability

As 2017 comes to a close, I want to review my goals I made for last year. I can reflect on how those went and help me analyze what goals I should have for 2018.

1-Be More Grateful
Part of my action plan for this goal was to write down three things I am grateful for each day. I was definitely not 100% at this, and this is a goal I would like to continue to work on. I do feel like my overall gratitude attitude increased with this being one of my goals. I do think this is something that needs to be a lifestyle change, so not just something you can work on, increase your gratitude, and then maintain it without work. I think the effort needs to be constant to maintain constant thankfulness.

2-Be Smarter
I have some some learning and reading on topics I have interest in. I had hoped to start taking piano this past fall, but I then decided I needed to wait until Brinley was in first grade. Kindergarten is half day here, and I had a feeling that half day would fly by. I was correct and it was the right choice to not add in piano yet. I am on the list for next fall, though!

3-Create Welcome Packet for New Swim Team Members
Done. It is nice to have some goals that are measurable and can be a final check.

4-Clean Out Storage Room
I made a lot of progress, but this is not done yet. Part of the issue is that we have a laundry room as part of our addition that is not yet finished. In that laundry room will be a pantry. This is going to be finished over the break next week (yay!). Once that is done, I will be able to know what can be stored and what needs to be  given away.

5-Write in Journal Weekly
While I had good moments, this is overall a fail for me. 

6-Finish Our Home Addition
Our main room is done and it is lovely! The laundry room portion will be done in the next couple of weeks. We then have the basement portion. That is on our plans to start to finish the beginning of summer.

The Tech-Wise Family Book Review

This is a review for the book The Tech-Wise Family: Everyday Steps for Putting Technology in Its Proper Place (affiliate link). I really enjoyed this book. One of the things I really liked about it is that the author, Andy Crouch, is very reasonable and stated often that this is what worked for his family and it might not be exactly what you want to do. You may be more strict or you may be less strict. You may keep some things and cut others. It is full of great ideas for how to have technology in your life but not let it consume life in your family.

The Tech-Wise Family Book Review | technology | technology rules for families | #technologyrules

I read this book because as modern parents, we do not have wisdom that has gone before us on the technological front. Most if not all other parenting concerns have been faced for many years and we can ask older parents and grandparents what they did. What worked? We can glean wisdom. With technology, however, we are so new with it that it is a situation where we don't have the gift of hindsight yet. 

The author says (I read this on my Kindle, so no page numbers), "But the pace of technological change has surpassed anyone's capacity to develop enough wisdom to handle it." This is just how I feel about it. Technology is so fresh, we don't even really know what we are dealing with yet. 

Technology Rule Ideas
Here are some of the rules and ideas about rules I loved from the book.
    The Tech-Wise Family Book Review | technology | technology rules for families | #technologyrules
  • Our Family is Different: "But if there's one thing our children need to hear from us, over and over again, it's this: "Our family is different." I fully agree with this. I agree with this on every level of parenting, and that includes technology. We have to be willing as parents to set rules that we feel are best and stick with them, even if "all the other parents" have different rules. Your children are individuals and need an individual plan.
  • Keep Technology In It's Place: "Technology is in its proper place when it helps us bond with the real people we have been given to love." I love this measuring stick for technology. Is technology helping you bond with the people in your life whom you love? Or is it distracting you from bonding with the people in your life? There may be times it does both. When technology is distracting you from the people in your life, take a step back and put some limits on technology. "Sure, there are other people at the end of those interactions, but they all too often substitute my family."
  • Don't Be a Passive Consumer: "When we let technology replace the development of skill with passive consumption, something has gone wrong." Be a creator in life, not just a passive consumer. We can easily let technology become all that we do.  "Children, in particular, are driven to create--if we just nudge them in that direction."
  • Set Limits: "If there's one thing I've discovered about technology, it's that it doesn't stay in its proper place on its own; finds its way underfoot all over the house and all over our lives. If we aren't intentional and careful, we'll end up with a quite extraordinary mess." Technology won't meter itself and it is easy to get sucked away and lose track of time. Set limits so you can control it. I know technology can seem to make life easier, but as the author states, "...the more you entertain children, the more bored they will get."
  • Live the Life You Want: "We are continually being nudged by our devices toward a set of choices, The question is whether those choices are leading us to the life we actually want." Spend your life the way you want to spend it. I think we often cruise through technology and later regret the way you spent that time. Just be sure you are spending your days the way you want to spend them. "We simply have to turn off the easy fixes and make media something we use no purpose and rarely rather than aimlessly and frequently." 
  • No Technological Secrets: Have the computer in a public place and make sure the parents have the password to every device in the house, including each other's. "Until children reach adulthood, parents should have total access to their children's devices."
  • Have Breaks: Have no-technology times. The author had a no tech rule for one hour a day every day, one day of the week every week, and one week of the year every year. At our house, we like to do a technology fast for one week every month. Choose what might work for you and set those rules and limits. 
  • Do Not Allow Devices in Bedrooms: This is pretty self-explanatory. We have a "charging station" in our house where the devices go at night. This is something we started years ago. By the time the kids are teenagers, it will have been a part of life for as long as they can remember. It won't be a big deal.
  • Car Time is Conversation Time: Keep technology out of the car as much as possible so you will use that time for conversations instead. The car is one of the best places for having great talks. I promise you will love that you established this rule as your children age. 
    The Tech-Wise Family Book Review | technology | technology rules for families | #technologyrules
  • Other Rules: He had some other rules that are of interest but not what we do at our house. One is to not allow screens in the lives of children at all until age 10. He admits that is extreme, but they did that in their family and loved it. He also talked about pre-recorded music as a bad version of technology.
Setting rules isn't always easy. Our children might fight back. We might even get other parents telling us we are doing it all wrong. Mommy wars are a real thing, and technology rules is not a battle people skip over. You will probably get people who disagree with the rules you set. While it is helpful to know what other people have as rules so you can help consider if your rules are all appropriate, do not give into "peer-pressure" any more than you want your children to. You have to set the rules you think are best for your family, no matter what everyone else is and isn't doing. 

This book was a fast read and gave some great ideas and considerations for technology rules to set in your families. It was very accepting of the fact that other people will have different rules and it didn't make you feel like a bad parent for not agreeing with him or for having other rules in mind. I highly recommend it to get your mind thinking about these rules and to get some good ideas for tech rules in your home.

Brinley Child Summary {5 Years 4 Months Old}

This is a summary for Brinley from 5 years 3 months and 5 years 4 months old.

Brinley Child Summary {5 Years 4 Months Old}

Sleep is great! I have to make sure that she gets in bed by 7:30, 8:00 at the latest. Otherwise she is super tired when it is time to get up in the morning. Getting to bed by 7:30 means she will usually wake up by 7 AM, where if she goes to bed after 8, she is usually still asleep when I get her up at 7:30, so the amount of sleep at night isn't usually very different, but she is better rested in the morning by getting to bed earlier in the evening than later. 

Eating is great! She is enjoying prepping some of  her food. She likes to prep her own sandwiches or toast. She is trying to be as independent as possible at lunch. Lunch is just Brinley and me, so we have simple lunches that she can help prep it. 

School is going great! She is doing very well and enjoying school. Last time I shared about how she had a hard time after I left the first time I helped in class. Since then, she has been great whenever I have helped. 

This is what Brinley is doing outside of school:
  • Swimming lessons: she is progressing, but she is funny. She will have days of no fear and then days when she is suddenly scared again. She has progressed to jumping off the diving board alone, so it is great!
  • Gymnastics: she is still improving here and still terrified of the beam. She works to face that fear. I think her coach worries about it at times and probably worries that we as parents will be upset about her lack of progression and ability on the beam. Our perspective, however, is that we do not have any hopes or expectations for her to be a gymnast in life. This is just for fun and for me, her standing on the beam alone and trying to do some tricks is huge progress in facing her fears, so I call it a big win.

    Right now, she can do gymnastics and dance because they are during the school day and she is in Kindergarten, which is a half day. When she moves on to full day school next year, we may drop gymnastics just because I don't see it being a long-term thing and it gets to be difficult to fit multiple activities in outside of school hours. 
  • Dance: dance is great! She loves her dance teachers.
  • Piano: Piano is going very well. She is learning to read notes quite well and is recognizing which note is where is on the staff. She is doing the Alfred series for young players, so they start just playing notes not on the staff. She has moved on to staff is and is quickly getting where each note is on the staff. 
7:00-7:30 AM--wake up, get read, eat, practice piano if time
9:00 AM--school
12:30 PM--home and eat lunch. Homework. Practice piano if we didn't have time. Then she can watch two shows and has independent playtime if desired. Two days a week she has her extra curricular activities. I scheduled her stuff during the other kids' school day so we didn't have our family time so interrupted. 
4:00 PM--Siblings home. Sibling play and family time. 
5:00 PM--Dinner in this hour
7:00 PM--Bedtime process begins.
7:30 PM--In bed

The Babywise Four Hour Schedule

When your baby is young, you will typically feed your baby every 2.5-3 hours throughout the day. As your baby gets older, he will be able to extend that time interval and eventually land at the 4 hour schedule. This post outlines when and how to implement a Babywise Four Hour Schedule.

The Babywise Four Schedule | feeding baby | four hour feeding schedule | 4 hour schedule | #babywise #babyschedule

Your baby might be ready for a four hour schedule when the following are true:
  • Baby is at least 12 weeks old. Baby needs to be old enough to go 4 hours between feedings both for the length between feedings and also because going 4 hours between feedings means dropping the number feedings in a day. 
  • Baby is sleeping through the night with no feedings. You may or may not have a dreamfeed when your baby moves to a four hour schedule. Your baby should be going 8-12 hours at night without a feeding before you consider a four hour feeding schedule.
  • Baby is ready to eat 4-5 times a day. Your baby is probably eating 5-6 times a day if you are considering a four hour schedule. Once you are on a four hour schedule, your baby will eat four times during the day. You might have a fifth if you still have a dreamfeed. 
  • Baby is asleep every time you get him for the next feeding. If your baby is still asleep at every feeding on your current 3-3.5 hour feeding, there is a good chance it is time for a four hour schedule. 
  • Baby can have a longer waketime or longer naps. To have a four hour feeding schedule, your baby needs to be able to stay awake for 2 hours and then sleep for 2 hours, OR baby needs to be able to stay awake for 1.5 hours and then nap for 2.5 hours. Some babies might be up for 2.5 hours and then nap for 1.5 hours. 
  • Baby isn't hungry when eating every 3-3.5 hours. If baby isn't hungry yet at 3-3.5 hours, he might be ready for a longer feeding schedule.
  • You feel like it is time. Never discount your parental intuition. If you just really feel like it is time, give it a try and see how it goes. You can always go back to the 3-3.5 hour schedule if the 4 hour schedule was not right. 
If your baby is not ready, do not stress and push moving to the four hour schedule. Your baby will get there when he is ready. Also, remember a combo schedule is perfectly acceptable. You might find your baby can go four hours in between the first two feedings, but needs the remainder of the feedings to be every 3 hours. That is totally fine.
The Babywise Four Schedule | feeding baby | four hour feeding schedule | 4 hour schedule | #babywise #babyschedule

If you feel confident it is time to move to a four hour schedule, you might be wondering how to make it happen.

You will first need to either keep baby awake longer for playtime or let baby sleep longer for naps. This will ensure baby can get to a four hour feeding interval. If you try to keep baby awake longer and naps stop going well, go back to the 3-3.5 hour schedule and try the four hour schedule at a later date. 

You can initially let baby sleep longer and slowly add five minutes of waketime to each waketime until you find out how long baby can be awake and still take a good nap (or until you get to a 2 hour waketime with a 2 hour nap time. If you get there, stop and be satisfied). 

Again, if you feel like some intervals need to be 4 hours but others need to be 3 or 3.5, that is perfectly fine.

Once you have moved to the four hour schedule, if your baby starts to be discontent, act hungry, or start waking early from naps or in the night, go back to your old schedule and try for the four hour schedule a later time. 

Moving to a four hour feeding schedule is a glorious milestone. Watch for the readiness signs and give it a try when baby is ready. Do not push the schedule before your baby is ready for it. This is a developmental milestone just as walking is. You cannot successfully force it before baby is ready to do it.

How to be Kind and be Firm with your Kids

by Carrie Wiley

Today, I'm sharing with you something that has been a struggle in my own heart and life lately and one I am very much still learning as I go: how to be kind and still firm with my kids.

I think it is so natural to get frustrated when our kids disobey, or give us attitude or make bad choices. You know, when it's time to actually parent them. I think it is really easy to give short, clipped instructions and corrections. And I for sure think it's easy to lose your cool. I know I struggle with this. It is something my husband and I talk about frequently and hold each other accountable to.

There is a line though, right? Certain behavior is completely unacceptable and needs to be corrected. But, isn't the same true of us as parents? It IS possible to be kind and firm in our instructions and corrections, even though it is difficult at times.

I have one tip for how to accomplish this and it's actually a tip that works across the board with talking with any human being (including your spouse, wink wink).....

consider the other person.

Being considerate of your child when you are correcting them doesn't mean you let them have their way and it doesn't mean you let them get away with poor choices or bad behavior. It means you consider the best way to communicate it to them. We all know there is a kind way to communicate with your child and the other way(s) that comes out of impatience and frustration. So yes, consideration takes a minute longer and often requires a bit of humility on your part too. But I think the response and results are worth it.

To this day, I remember times my parents corrected me and 90% of the time it was with kindness and with the intent of helping me grow into a responsible adult. I really want my kids to be able to say the same thing about me one day.

Why is this so important? Why does it matter? In our family, we believe discipline is a means of discipleship. Of helping shape their hearts and minds to love God and love His people. It is really difficult to do that if we aren't modeling that behavior for them. So we model kindness when we talk about hard things or things we disagree on. We model repentance when we get it wrong. And we model forgiveness and grace when they get it wrong. 

Consideration shouldn't be such a foreign concept, but in the world we are living in now - this high charged, high-opinionated culture where everyone has a voice on social media and so many hot political topics vying for our attention - we have to be very very intentional to teach, train, and model consideration and kindness for our kids.

The Best Christmas Treats to Make with Kids

I love Christmas treats. There are several I feel are must-makes every year. This year, I decided to have each child choose a treat to make each Monday evening to go with our family night. This has been fantastic because it has spread the treats out over the month rather than us having them all in one week. We are slowly enjoying them rather than binging on them.

The Best Christmas Treats to Make with Kids | Christmas | #christmastreats

These five treats are easy enough to make with your children. 

Fudge can be hard, but there are easy fudge recipes out there. I love to add different extracts to the fudge to change the flavor. Chocolate, mint, is all yum. Here is a link to my favorite fudge recipe:

 Simple Fudge

Sugar Cookies
To be perfectly honest, I hate making sugar cookies. HATE! Loathe even.

So naturally Kaitlyn chose sugar cookies for her treat. Ugh! 

I turned to my favorite recipe resource, Our Best Bites. They did not fail me. They had a delicious recipe and amazing tips for making the process easier. Things turned out the best they ever have and I feel like I can face that again with a better attitude in my heart. I think my sugar cookie heart grew a few sizes. Find the Sugar Cookie recipe here. 

Kiss Cookies
My grandmother always made kiss cookies every Christmas, so they are Christmas treat to me. Here is my recipe:
 Kiss Cookies

Gingerbread House
I go super easy on the gingerbread house each year. I simply purchase a Wilton Kit (affiliate link). I get it from the grocery store, Walmart, Amazon...wherever. I am sure to snatch up the first one I come across in life. I try to get ones that have multiple houses or parts (they have a train set). That way the kids can each do their own house or work with one partner instead of trying to have four do it. 

Oh Divinity! It is divine! Here is a simple recipe, but I skip the nuts. If you haven't tried this, you MUST!

Sample Babywise Schedules: The Fourth Month

Your baby's fourth month is her month as she turns three months old. The first month, 0 months old, was the first few weeks of life. The forth month is her month as a three month old. This is your first month stepping out of the newborn months!

Now that you have a three month old, read through my sleep hierarchy for 3-6 month olds. The goals and ideals change a bit with this older age range. Here are some sample Babywise schedules for you to use this month. This post contains affiliate links.

Month Overview
During this fourth month, aim for the following:
  • 12 weeks: 5-8 feedings per each 24 hour period.
  • 12 weeks: Feedings will be 2.5-3.5 hours apart.
  • 12 weeks: Some babies might be ready for feedings to be spaced 4 hours apart. Watch for that this month. 
  • 12 weeks: Your  baby should take 4-8 naps a day.
  • 12 weeks; Naps should be 1.5-2.5 hours long. The exception is your final nap of the day. This might be 30-60 minutes long.
  • 13 Weeks: Might be ready for 5-7 feedings in day.
  • Your baby will likely be sleeping anywhere from 7-10 hours at night. If you drop the dreamfeed, baby might sleep 12 hours at night. 
  • Watch for signs your baby is ready to drop the dreamfeed. Not all babies are, but some will be ready during this month. If you are breastfeeding, consider pumping at a dreamfeed if your baby stops eating at the dreamfeed. This will help keep milk supply up. 
  • Watch for signs your baby is ready to stop being swaddled. Some swaddle beyond this age, but some are ready to stop as a three month old.
  •  Babies in this age range will start to talk to themselves around 5 AM. If left alone, they will typically go back to sleep. This is just something they do developmentally. 
  • There is a significant Wonder Week around 12 weeks old. 
Our Sample Schedules
Here are our schedules we used in this age range.

Week 12:
7:30 AM--eat
8:30 AM--nap
10 or 10:30 AM--eat (I always get her by 10:30)
10:50 or 11:20 AM--nap
1 or 1:30 PM--eat (I always get her by 1:30)
1:50 or 2:20 PM--nap
4:00 PM--eat
4:50 PM--nap6:00 PM--eat
6:45 PM--put in swing (due to witching hour)--sometimes she sleeps, sometimes not
8:00 PM--eat (essentially a dreamfeed--no waketime)
8:30 PM--in bed
10:00 PM--Dreamfeed
On Becoming Babywise
8:00--feed, then bedtime

Week 13:
Our schedule has some differences. Our morning waketime got a little later because of the early morning feedings and we also dropped the cluster feeding:

8:00 AM--eat
8:50 AM--nap
10:30 AM--eat
11:30 AM--nap
1:30 PM--eat
2:30 PM--nap
4:30 PM--eat
5:30 PM--nap
6:30-7:00 PM--eat
7:30-8:00 PM--sleep in swing due to witching hour
10:00 PM--Dreamfeed
5:30-6:00 AM--early morning feeding (she wakes for this, I don't wake her)

8:00--feed, then bedtime

Week 14: 
10:00--nurse then bed (dreamfeed)
At this age, her night feeding was in those early morning hours, usually around 6 AM. I believe she dropped that feeding around 4 months.

6:30 or 7:00--eat then down to bed
Every other night, she ate between 5:30 AM and 6:00 AM. Those days, we started at 8 AM. The other days, she at between 7:00 AM and 7:30 AM. She still slept until about 11:00 AM.

8:00--feed, then bedtime

Week 15:
8:00 AM--eat
8:50 AM--nap
11:00 AM--eat
12:00 PM--nap
2:00 PM--eat (sometimes this was at 1:30 PM)
3:00 PM--nap
4:30 PM--eat
5:40-5:50 PM--nap
6:30 PM--sometimes woke. She is starting to usually take a shorter nap at this time of day. If she woke at 6:30, I got her and held her until starting to feed her at 7:00 PM. If she didn't wake at 6:30, I got her up at 7:00 to eat.
7:00 PM--eat then right back to bed.
7:30 PM--in bed
10:00-10:30 PM--dreamfeed
5:30ish AM--eat from one side

2:00 or 2:30--feed
3:00--nap (one hour after waking)
5:00 or 5:30--feed
6:30--nap (one hour after waking--sometimes she does one hour ten minutes here)
7:30--feed, then bedtime

Week 16:
It is a bit different this week since she is extending nights. I will just say she is waking at seven even though it ranged from 6:45-7:15. 7:00 is a happy medium.
7:00 AM--eat
7:50 AM--nap
10:30 AM--eat
11:30-11:35 AM--nap
1:30 PM--eat
2:35 PM--nap
4:00 or 4:30 PM--eat
5:15-5:45 PM--nap
6:30-6:45 PM--wake up
7:00 PM--eat then straight to bed
10:00 PM--dreamfeed

2:00 or 2:30--feed
3:00--nap (one hour after waking)
5:00 or 5:30--feed
6:30--nap (one hour after waking--sometimes she does one hour ten minutes here)
7:30--feed, then bedtime

Your Sample Schedules:
Here are your schedules you have shared over the years: 

Week 12: 
12 week old girl (but same schedule since 9 weeks or so)
I also work very early, so I have to leave the house by 6:30 am and get home at 5. So I always want to make sure she starts the day with a breastfeeding before getting breastmilk from a bottle all day.
5:30 wake
6-6:15 independent playtime while I get ready for work
6:15 nap
Sample Babywise Schedules | three month old schedules | sample baby schedules | #babywise #babyschedule

8:30 feed
9:00-9:30 play time with daddy and tummy time
9:30 nap
11:00 feed
12:15 nap
2:00 feed
3:15 nap (she has a very hard time with this nap)
4:45 or 5:00 feed
6:00 nap (she has a hard time with this nap sometimes)
8:00 feed
8:30-9:00 bed, depending on cues 
My husband pointed out that I should mention we don't dreamfeed. I tried it, and she actually wouldn't sleep through the night on nights that I did one. It started because I was so tired I skipped the dreamfeed for a couple of nights and she slept through. Then I picked it back up and she woke at 3:30. Perhaps because of gas? Either way, she currently doesn't eat between 8 and 5:30 

Week 13:
Almost 3 months

6am-waking time-feeding
11:30am-feeding-and usually we go out and doesn't fall asleep until his last feeding,stays awake all that time.Very happy and calm,sometimes fussy.(i know he is tired)
8pm-feeding,and goes to bed at 8:30pm,50% of the feedings i wake him up,specially on this one.
2am-feeding,he wakes up for this one. I'm still working on getting him to STTN, the longest interval so far is 6.5 hours but that is about it. and i usually pump before going to sleep(10-11pm) to keep my milk supply.

Almost 3 months 
I wake him up at 9:00 am-breast feed
Go down for nap 10:00 
Breast Feed 12:00 
Go down for Nap 1:00-1:10
Breast Feed 3:30 
Go down for Nap 4:30
Breast feed 6:00 
Go down for Nap 7-730 
Formula bottle 8:00
Goes to sleep 9:00 
Dreamfeed 930-10:00
He sometimes awakes by the 45 minute intruder during 2nd and 3rd nap but if I go in right away and give paci he goes right back to sleep and finishes out nap... he started sttn at 7 weeks!

Week 14: 
3 Months Girl 

7:00am – eat
8:00am – nap
10:00am – eat
11:00am – nap
1:00pm – eat
2:00pm – nap
4:00pm – eat
5:00pm – nap
7:00pm – eat
8:00pm – bed time
10:00pm – dreamfeed
(5/6:00am) – shortened feeding

14 Week Old Boy

We just moved to this schedule about 4 days ago after weeks of battling the 45-minute intruder and thinking he needed less awake time. I finally went with my gut that he was undertired and so allowed more awake time (almost 2 hours sometimes!), dropped the dreamfeed, and moved to a 3.5 hour schedule during the day. It has worked like a charm so far--he sleeps 1.5-1.75 hours each nap, 10-11 hours at night, and is happy and alert during awake times! He also still averages 15-15.5 hours of sleep a day, so it seems like enough. And he is not overly sensitive about the exact amount of wake time. We just watch for yawns, stillness, or sometimes fussiness before putting him down.
7am Wake, nurse both sides. (Sometimes he wakes between 6 and 7 but goes back to sleep or lays quietly.)
Wake time--independent play in gym, some play with mom and dad.
8:45-9am Nap

Start time and bedtime are very consistent from day to day, feedings are "on time" about 90% of the time. Waketime and naps are more variable from day to day. Some days she hibernates, other days she seems able to be awake and alert more, so we rely on cues quite a bit for naps. Occasionally chaos ensues and every nap is off! But we are close to the schedule most of the time- I include that info to encourage anyone reading who sees these schedules and wonders what they are doing wrong on off days- I've been there! Bad naps and bad days happen, but they have gotten much less frequent. STTN the full 11 hours most nights, she would occasionally starting around 9 weeks but now she is eating more at each feeding and she has started making it through most of the time. Dreamfeed didn't work for us (we gave it a good effort, but she woke earlier with the dreamfeed than without) and cluster stopped working around 8 weeks.

Have not done dreamfeeds as we are usually in bed early and up early so found dreamfeeds would actually make me lose some of my sleep.
3-4am - Feed (when baby wakes up) straight back to bed. Still trying to drop this feed.
