A new start

by sim on Thu Sep 12, 2013 6:34 pm
I haven't touched this in ages but need a place to record the happenings of my sleep plan with DS2.
He has gone from being a reasonable sleeper to a totally unreasonable one. Last night (11/9/13) looked like this:

7:00 bedtime feed
8:20 feed
9:30 feed (daddy tried unsuccessfully to settle)
10:50 feed
1:10 feed
3:20 feed
4:46 feed
5:20 feed and up for the day

At least he goes right back to sleep after feeding but this is exhausting me!

So I cracked out the well worn copy of No Cry Sleep Solution...

Let the journey begin!

2) Hibernation was removed from Ubuntu so you need to get it back into you shutdown menu again:

Potty aware

by june2007 on Thu Feb 21, 2013 9:23 pm
My DS is 2 1/2 but is young for his age. He shows an interest in the potty and will do a wee and sometimes a poo on the potty. Sometimes he will go to it on his own. Sometimes he will tell me he needs changing. However none of this is consistent or reliable. So I am keeping him in nappies and offering the potty at each change.
