Not that I have been counting but I had not had a full nights sleep for 690 days!!!
Sebby is now 694 days old and has finally slept through the whole night for three days on the trot and I am hoping it stays this way.
So what has changed?
We have taken the side of his cot and changed it into a toddler bed. He has a proper duvet and pillow of his own, although I bought the Gro-To-Bed set for my own piece of mind as the pillow is attached to the sheet and the duvet zips onto the sheet which stops him kicking the duvet off as well as preventing him from falling out of bed.
It has been two months since he stopped breastfeeding and I did notice the routine start to change then. He used to cry about 1am and I used to bring him in to bed with us with the intentions of putting him back in his bed when he fell asleep again…….it rarely happened as I would fall asleep too.
The 1am wake up became 4am and again he would come into bed with us as there was no way I was getting up at that ungodly hour. It has stayed at that time since the clocks changed.
This week we have done nothing different. His body clock is still a bit out from the clock changes and we have not been able to get him in bed until 9pm, however, I am more than happy to take this if it means I get an uninterupted full nights sleep!
Now all I need to do is stop myself waking at 4am expecting him to get up so I feel refreshed myself!
