Remember I told ya about Kazim and sleep training?
Well, Kazim is given breast or EBM at 630pm-7pm, then we give him a bath at 7pm-730pm, then put on his PJ and and yes, let him sleep by himself.After that time, if he wakes up we won’t bring him outside the room even if he’s wide awake.Kalau bawak luar bilik pon, we make sure lampu malap.With this regular routine, it is easier for us to read his cues..We started to put him on a regular routine since he was..err 2 days old :-)Took me..err maybe a few days to establish the routine.As a new mom, I really hope my boy sleeps through the night. . ( ni I buat kat Kazim..huhuhu), Kazim is given cluster feeding( let say give breast at 7pm and 9pm and give him another at 1130pm), which means literally nurse him in his sleep, pick him up without waking him up and put him down when finished.
Kdg2 bagi EBM yg pumped masa waktu pagi ..dia minum punya :-)
He would tentatively wake up at 4am or 5am to feed (sometimes tak bgn pon)and then wake up fully at 7am.
During his growth spurts, his sleeping pattern has been all over the place. For instance, he would sleep from 730 or 8pm to 9pm ONLY!! and then wake up and won’t sleep until 12am or something ridiculous like that..pastu kdg2 bangun nangis2...yang mcm mengigau ke haper..pastu kdg2 nangis sekuat hati.. . I knew he wasn't hungry because he just finished his milk so it was ONLY a mixture of manjaness and wanting to be cuddled.Lepas dah kena angkat tu, bila dia dah tak merengek, terus letak balik. Pastu kdg2 dia merengek balik, pastu ulang siaran la benda yg sama sampai la dia tidur dengan sendirinya.Angkat letak..angkat letak..
...And then the next day he would crash and have a long day nap...gosh!
In addition to that, Kazim is nursing more frequently and I tell you..he is drinking A LOT!!!
So anyways, Kazim will be turning 6 months soon.
More updates on his weaning process later!
