Lesson Learned

Both my midwife and pediatrician wanted me to wake Vienna a after two hours of sleep during the day to feed her. I haven’t tried till today. Normally she’ll sleep for 4-6 hours after 1am. After that she wakes, eats and goes back down for 3-4 hours again. Then Vienna wakes again for some golden liquid(aka my milk) then sleeps again for another 3-4 hours. We nurse pretty much for the rest of the night.

Turns out this is the sleep pattern of a three month old. While Vienna is only three weeks old, she is the size of an older baby. Because I woke her after two hours for he naps earlier today she has refused to sleep for 7 hours! It’s been a nightmare. A miserable, screaming nightmare. I gotta trust my instincts.
