    Hi Maddie,

    You’re doing an incredible job navigating the ups and downs of your baby’s sleep patterns! Dealing with hourly wake-ups is certainly tough. She could be going through a growth spurt, especially if you’ve noticed an increase in feeding both in frequency and duration during the day.

    Your plan to try for naps in the big cot while remaining flexible with using the pram, car, or contact naps as needed is a good approach. It ensures she gets the rest she needs without too much stress for either of you.

    It’s quite normal for babies to take shorter naps as they adjust to a new sleeping environment, so the brief naps in her cot aren’t unusual.

    It’s fantastic to hear that your bedtime routine is solidifying! Now that she’s getting used to settling down without needing to feed, it’s the perfect time to introduce the settling pyramid.

    Keep up the great work; consistency is key, and I’m confident you’ll start seeing more predictable sleep patterns soon.

    Please continue to keep me updated on your progress!
