George is 3 months old and goes to bed at 9/9.30. He generally wakes again between 6 and 7.30. He will usually want to go back to sleep after his feed. If it's before 7 then I let him and he will lay in till 9.30/10. If after 7 then I pull the curtains make it very obvious it's morning and get him up. If I do this he tends to have a nap around 9. My question is do you think I should let him sleep in, am I doing the right thing?

WOW how lucky are you for your little one to sleep that long?

I have a 2month old little boy and the last few nights he has been unsettled of a night, thrashing about a bit in a light sleep and waking at 5am. He has been a good sleeper before this so a bit confused as to why he has been like this.

I would say you are doing a great job and have a good routine going so don't think you should change what you are doing Very Happy

Personally I'd try putting him to bed earlier at night and yes he may want a feed during the night but then he would go maybe 7pm-3 and then until 7am. That's what my little girl does (on a good night lol). I'm hoping that 3am feed will get later and then she will just sleep through but I'm in no rush yet, she's only little. I like to have some time to myself in the evenings when they are both asleep. I like her to wake at around 7 because I'm up with my little boy so have to be up anyway.

You do what's right for you I'd say, there's nothing wrong with what you're doing x

I think I may try and gradually get his bed time earlier. Don't think he'd go down that early now. Thought I'd try going 15 minutes earlier every couple of weeks. I also wouldn't mind some time to myself in the evening. Never minded it that much when he woke in the night as he always went back to sleep well.
