Bedtime / Hora de Dormir

For a long time now, Chloe’s bedtime has been 9:30 pm (carried on during our two weeks in Greece by sleeping at 11:30 local time). I know it sounds late but it works for me as I’m most definitely not a morning person. Then during the day she would nap for 45 minutes every 3 hours (with a feed), some times even for longer, and all of this of her own accord of course.
A couple of weeks ago we finally introduced a bedtime routine. It was meant to be dinner, bath, massage, pyjama and boob with music, but she is so sleepy that she freaks out and we’ve moved it to bath, pyjama, dinner and boob.
When the clocks changed last weekend we had a couple of crazy evenings in a row: one 11:30 bedtime and the following 6:00 – I had no idea what was going on!!
But since then she has found a new bedtime of 8:00 and dropped a nap too, so she’s roughly sleeping 12 hours at night with 2-3 feeds (in her sleep as usual), and each remaining nap is about 45 minutes long.
It’s looking pretty nice but I do wonder what will happen tonight when I go teach pregnancy yoga from 7 to 8:30!!!
La hora de dormir de Chloe ha sido desde siempre las 21:30 (en Grecia como son dos horas más se dormía a las 23:30!). Aquí eso suena a tardísimo, pero como a mí me cuesta madrugar me ha ido bien. Luego las siestas las hacía con cada toma, unos 45 minutos o más cada 3 horas. Todo esto por supuesto por sí misma; ella es la que ha ido encontrando su ritmo.
Hace unos días cuando cambiaron la hora tuvimos un par de noches caóticas: un día no se durmió hasta las 23:30 y el siguiente a las 18:00 estaba frita! Miedo me daba.
Pero a parti de ahí ha encontrado un nuevo ritmo: se duerme a las 20:00, unas 12 horas o así con 2 o 3 tomas en sueños, y solo echa dos siestas de 45 minutos cada una.
Tiene buena pinta pero veremos a ver que pasa esta noche que doy clases de 19:00 a 20:30!!!
