weird sleeping patterns...?

I am a first time mom and I have a 10 week old daughter.... about 2-3 weeks ago she was sleeping at night for a period of 6-7 hours...getting up to eat and then going back to bed for about 2-3 hours. Now all of a sudden she is going to bed... sleeping for about an hour... getting up- NOT eating... goes back to bed for about 2-3 hours... gets up and eats- goes back to bed for about 2-3 hours...gets up and eats and goes back to be for about an hour... she seems to do this every night with the exception of last night where she slept for about 7 hours and then 2 hours.... DOES anyone have any suggestions on how to get her to sleep longer like she used to? We are not doing anything different so I do not understand why it just changed?! Thanks!

When I had this problem, I happened upon a book by Elizabeth Pantley called The No-Cry Sleep Solution. It really helped me look at everything going on and determine the best way to help my baby get back to sleep and get into a regular routine. This is not to say that our routine doesn't occassionally get disrupted by teething and growth spurts or overactive days, but basically, she gives you a lot of really practical advice to address the specific needs of you and your baby. I highly recommend it to every new mom! You can get a cheap copy mailed right to your door on half.com!

She's in the middle of a growth spurt probably, however this could also just be normal newborn behaviour. These sleeping patterns for some parents can continue for the first 6 months or so. Just try & go with the flow as trying to change these habits is probably not worth the stress for you both. Relax as your baby will be a toddler before you know it. Just catch up on sleep yourself when you can. Hope it settles for you soon. My baby is 8mo & only just starting to sleep long periods during the night.

I don't know if my mom can help, but she is a rn that teaches second year nursing students and also is a family therapist with a local company called the family center. We live in Edmonton, Alberta. if you want to email her and ask her I will tell her that she should expect the email, even if you solve your problem if you have others you could email her ask for advice. Tell her that her son Mark read this on yahoo and thought she could help. harlanrn@telus.net take care and I hope everything works out for you and your family.
