It’s been two weeks since we started sleep training. I am pleased to say I am getting a lot more sleep, but due to my poor little bear suffering from a bug the last week, I haven’t been sticking to my guns as strictly as I would have liked.
For the first 6 days I was strict in making sure he fell asleep alone at bedtime and every night waking. It was hard work but it was paying off. From day one, he drastically reduced the number of times he woke. However, now that he is ill when he wakes during the night and he’s poor little nose is struggling so hard to breathe, I can’t help but help him out.. After all that’s what mummy’s are for..
My baby is back to sleeping one long stretch a night (most nights), which averages between 4 and 6 hours, he then wakes once or twice. On two occasions he has managed 9 hours straight which is just amazing.
However, we are still struggling with very early starts. He’s just too eager to get up and play. This has improved, but we’ve had a handful of nights were he’s woken at 5am, and two occasions were he has woken at 4am (this morning being one of them)😂😂. I will tackle this problem once we have a fully self soothing baby! (Oh and once naps are sorted too).
So, all in all I am pleased with the progress we have made so far, but don’t want to get my hopes up yet as anything can happen, and my munchkin still prefers mummy to put him to sleep. I am just so relieved that the waking up every 2 hours has vanished for now, but I’ll be praying this carries on.. 🙏🙏🙏
