More Reader Newborn Questions

I am recently trying to become a babywise mom with my 2month old. I am having trouble with his routine. Sometimes he sleeps through his 3 hour feed and goes 4 hours. Should I wake him, or should I try doing a 4 hour feed schedule? He sometimes sleeps at night at 9pm or 9:45 then wakes at 7 or 8 am. How do I get him to sleep wake and or should I wake him or let him sleep. He currently takes his naps in his swing during the day, should I try to get him to sleep in his swing? How long is too long to let him cry since he is only 2 months old? Thank s for your help…

Amanda, definitely wake him to stay on your feeding schedule. He is too young for a 4 hour schedule at this point.

I am unclear with your second question. What do you mean by “sleep wake”?

For naps, I would definitely work on getting him out of his crib and into a bed. That is likely a reason he is sleeping so long.
