So we are now four days into our new routine and fingers crossed it is working really well.
I have offered to get the routine in place until the weekend and then Gav will implement it too. So far so good. Izzy is in her cot by 7pm.
Night 1 – was propbably the worst taking til 7:40pm for Miss Fizz to get to sleep. She then woke up at 12:30am and 5:30am and took 20 minutes each time to go back to sleep, I never lifted her from her cot but instead lay her down, tuck her in and pat her bum.
Night 2 – Fizz was asleep by 7:20pm and slept through til 5:40am
Night 3 – Fizz was asleep by 7:10pm and slept through til 5:50am
Tonight is night 4 and she was asleep by 7:10pm.
It’s going well and I think it makes it easier that we have found the right system for us and also it was the right time. I feel that having the new routine is giving us all some more stability and obviously the sleep is helping!
I had a bottle of wine last night and did I feel as tired as if I’d been up all night with baby this morning!
