Graham’s Schedules

0-4 weeks
Basically on a 3 hour schedule, with cluster feeding in the evening (nursing about every 1.5-2 hours). Some feeds are only 2.5 hours apart during the day, but mostly going 3 hours between feeds.

6:00 nurse (35-40 minute waketime)
9:00 nurse (40-45 minutes waketime)
12:00 nurse (40-45 minutes waketime)
3:00 nurse (40-45 minutes waketime)
5/5:30 nurse
*it gets a little hairy after this feeding. He won’t always settle and nap well. I typically feed him 1-2 more times before the final feeding. He has a witching hour. I have found wearing him in a baby carrier helps. He’ll nap in the carrier, but he won’t nap in a crib or swing during these hours.
8/8:30 nurse, immediately followed by bedtime (no waketime)
1-2 middle of the night feedings (which I have to wake him for sometimes)

10:00 nurse (50-60 minute waketime)
