How well/long does your baby sleep?

My son set his own schedule. I've tried ONE time to see if I could keep him up during the day back when he would wake up every TWO HOURS, but NO. He was set on his own time and ever since then, I've gotten pretty decent sleep. lol

7:00-8:30 am - Just wakes up
9:30-10:30 am - he's ready for a nap
12:30-1:30 pm - 2nd nap of the day
4:00-6:30 pm  - 3rd nap of the day
8:30-10:00 pm - ready for bed.
4:00-5:30 am - he wakes up to feed and goes back to bed until the 7:00-8:30 wake up time.

He does this like clockwork every single day. Also, the dash (-) between the times isn't how long he sleeps, just the  "about times" he does want to sleep.

My son has a routine, which consists of being awake no longer than 1.5-2hrs at a time and we get about 5-6hrs sleep at night.
He is now on the bottle and has just gone thru a growth spurt i think as he drinking 180-200mls every 3hrs for the past 3 days...today we are back to normality..THANKGOD!

My baby has a similar schedule to yours. But it still varies on times. It will be the same times everyday for a week then move an hr back. She sets her own schedule as well. She sleeps for a move6 hr stretch at night but last night slept 8 hrs,  730pm until 317am. But unfortunately she then stayed up until 4 45am before going back down until only 7. But she has been napping since.   It tends to be a long nap in the am, 2-3 hrs. Then 2 short 1 hr naps in the pm. One generally around 1 pm and another around 4.

She was consistently feeding at 2 and 6 am but we stayed out late one night and it got screwed up for a few days. Now she is back to 6 hrs from when she sttles except last night.
