I seriously cannot remember what we did with our first and am suddenly confused about the patterns of feeding a newborn. I remember we followed the eat, play, sleep order. But then when it's bedtime do you do an extra feed (we formula feed) before bed... Or just put down and do the feed when they wake? And since you don't want to encourage the "play" part in the middle of the night, do you attempt to just put them right back down or do they stay awake for their typical wake window still?

My first was not a good sleeper until we sleep trained him... So any tips that helped you in the early days are appreciated! Please let me know how you tackled the nights during the early weeks/months.
