8 weeks!!!

I can't believe that my little lovebug is 8 weeks old!! Time sure is flying by. We started a night time routine on Tuesday: bath at 7:15, 2 stories, prayers, bottle/songs, bed. I am still breastfeeding but am giving a bottle at bed so that when brandon does it, it won't be confusing. She has been doing better since the routine. Last night she slept from 8:15-1:15 1:30-4:30 4:30-8:15. I can't complain about that. We go to the Doctor on Monday to get her shots. I will post her stats after that. I hope everyone is having a fabulous day!!

Thanks for the advice

Thanks for all the advice. I didn't get to read it until this morning so last night I followed my SIL's advice. She told me that if McKenzie woke up to soon to be hungry to go in her room and put her pacifer back in her mouth without holding her. Brandon fed her at 8:30. She went to sleep around 9:30. At 10:30 I heard her...went in and put in her pacifer. She slept 4 more hours!! Not sure if it was a fluke or what but I'll take it;)

I need Advice

Hi blogger friends!! Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I have been reading your blogs though!! I need advice on helping McKenzie to sleep more at night. She is 7 weeks old. For the last few days she has been waking up every 2 hours at night and I'm going crazy. I read that it is because I rock her to sleep so when she wakes in the night she has to be rocked back because she can't self sooth herself. Not sure if this is true or not. Does anyone have advice on how I can get her to sleep at longer intervals...Mama is tired;)

Other than that she is doing great! She weighs 10lbs now!! We go for her 8 weeks shots on the 22nd and I'm so happy because that means more freedom to go around more people!! I hope everyone is doing great.
