    Phew, I was starting to get majorly stressed about my LO’s weight/feedings, and I think the feed/play/feed/sleep may help with that.We’ve been doing EASY for about 3 mo, and while he took to it great, he’s never napped more than 30min, and the last 5wks or so has increased his night feedings. Is the assumption with the feed 30min before nap that the feeding is taking 30min and is putting them to sleep or should they be woken up before being put down? Thank you for the insight!

      Hi @Stefanie – Thank you for writing to us, and we’re happy to hear that our information has been helpful and hope that adding more feeds to your schedule really helps!! Feedings will take different lengths of time for each baby, so your baby may be done in 15 minutes, which is fine! In any case, we recommend waking baby if he falls asleep during a feed, or at least partially waking baby before you put them down for a nap. This way, he’ll be learning to fall asleep independently, and will hopefully nap better!
      Good luck Stefanie, and please contact us if you need assistance at any time!

    Yes. Thank you! Finally someone said it. I have been wondering if e.a.s.y. routine is just more like impossible. Putting a baby to sleep after 2 hours of activity without feeding her first. Good luck with that!
    My baby is like clockwork, but she has to have her eating and snuggly time before sleep. Her longest nap during lunchtime is almost 3 hours.

    I’ve been using EASY and it works great for me! LO doesn’t wake up in the middle of the night and it gives me a mental break knowing a nap time is coming. I do feed a little bit more just before nap time, though.

    I found the babywise method fantastic. My boys slept through the night by 8 weeks of age (9 hour sleeps) they were very happy contented babies. I had twins and they came home from the SCN on a very similar schedule.
