Question Her schedule

Nicole normally wakes up twice a night...around 3ish and then again around 6ish. after putting her to bed between 930-10pm. After her 2nd feeding during the night, she will sleep til about 9am...stay up for a awhile, have a little nap and then have a big nap from 12-5. Is this normal? . I know its mentioned when LO is hungry they will wake up...but I just cannot believe it.

Then the last two days after coming home from work, I will try to feed her when she wakes and just makes a fuss and pushes away. You figured the last time she was fed was about 1130 -12 and its pushing 430-5pm. I was getting worried that she doesnt want me to feed her anymore, but when DH gave her the bottle, she only drank an 1oz. I normally will force her on my boob and she winds up taking it..but whats the deal?

Does she fuss when she wakes up? How soon after she wakes do you try to feed her? Maybe she's just the type where after a long sleep she needs to wake up for a few minutes and play before she's ready to eat?

Sienna isn't really on a schedule yet, although she is getting closer! Usu she will sleep from the time she goes to bed (11:15 or 12:00 depending on when DH and I go to bed and when she needs to eat) then she sleeps until around 7 or 7:30 in the morning. She eats and goes back to sleep for about 3 hours then wakes up and eats. Sometimes she stays awake for awhile after that and sometimes she goes back to sleep. The rest of the day kind of depends on when she feels like sleeping, however she does take a nap every day when DS is napping, just not for as long a time as he naps for ( he sleeps about 2-3 hours and she usully only sleeps about half that time.) Her "cranky time" usually starts around 8 and if she falls asleep it ends whenever that happens, otherwise it's on and off for a couple of hours!

I really need to get this girlie on a schedule!

For the most part, when she wakes up shes just sitting there. The only time shes really crying is during the night..other than that...shes actually content.
