Sleeping! Help

Why is it so hard to get a child into a good sleep pattern and then so easy to break it?

Baba has always slept through the night, I know before you all start screaming at me, from about 3 months. But it is the getting the sleep thing that has been the hardest to crack.

We have had a routine with him from an early age, he has a bath, goes down has his milk and then up to bed for a story. That is fine the next part is the problem.

If he falls asleep while listening to a story, fine he will be out till at least 6am. However if he is still awake after the story ends all hell breaks loose. He does not like to be left alone. When we first started doing this we tried every technique in the book. At first nothing worked. But then we noticed that we could sit in the room with our back to him and he didn’t mind. Gradually oh so gradually and so quietly we would manage to move across the room, until we got to the point were we could get up from reading and go and stand by the door. Yeah victory for mummy and daddy. More

How wrong was I? More

Sleep Oh Wonderful Sleep

Yesterday we had our niece to stay, she is only six months old and it was the first time that she had been away from her Mummy and Daddy and she was a star!

However that isn’t what I am going to write about, it is the fact that she made us stop. Even if it was just for one night. More
