I love to watch Sigge sleep and would love to share the mystery world he enters. What would a baby dream of? They have such vivid facial expressions and sounds in their sleep and I know nothing of what goes on in his brain. The first month we slept close together, often with Sigge on my chest. The second month I decided close is wonderful but not forever and Sigge moved into his own bed next to mine. The third month Sigge moved into the green room and surprised us with starting to sleep through the night.
We have heard about babies "finding their own sleep-routine" but to be honest I never ever believed in it. We kind of follow Gina Ford food and sleep routine, put our babies to bed at 7-8 pm, feed them at 10pm and hope for the best. Cara never slept more than 2 hours at a time for the first 18 months. Viktor was fine but needed to be convinced to cut out the 3-4 am feed. Sigge just sleeps - for now. And it is wonderful to get up at 7 am and find him gurgling at his paper flowers.
