Update on sleep

Postby lazylexis » Fri Sep 17, 2010 11:52 am

Well as I'm sure you all know Nathan still wakes up a minimum of 3 times a night.
This week Dh has put Nathan to bed twice :wine: for the first time in months. The first time it took 2 hours ( I was out for the evening) , the 2nd time I didn't hear any crying and it took about 20 mins, he has moaned about it ever since tho!
On Wed night Dh put Nathan to bed at 8 and I went to bed about 9.30. Nathan woke at 12 and then hourly until 7 :x so i was shattered! Last night he went to sleep at 8.45 and woke at 12. 1.30, 2.30 and at 3.30 I thought I'd see what happened as he normally wants a feed and cries. He poked my boob and said "mmmmm" asking for a feed. I pretended to be asleep for a few mins. He carried on. Then he tried to open my eyes and tapped me on the cheek :giggle: I had to try so hard not to laugh!! Still I pretended to be asleep. After another minute or so no crying and he simply snuggled in to me and went to sleep! And slept till 5 so slightly better. I think I might try this approach if he has fed within the last couple of hours and see how much sleep I get. If he starts crying and getting distressed then I'll feed him. I'm not sure if that will confuse him or not but seemed to be ok last night!

Yay for slightly better :wine: . DS2 never slept through & would just pull my pj top down to feed even when I tried not to let him. When he was around 11mths, DH started going into him instead of me & he slept through after 2 or 3 nights and has done ever since :shock: :wine:

FC it continues to get better :hug:
