08 Jul I CAN NOW PICK UP ON MY LITTLE BOYS SLEEP CUES
Patrick’s sleeping at least 12 hours overnight, with a bedtime around 6.15-6.45pm, depending on how our day has gone, & waking around 6.30-7.30am. He sometimes wakes overnight, & if he doesn’t self settle I feed him (as I do still worry about my supply… & don’t want to leave him hungry), but other nights he’s obviously full/content & sleeps through!
We have certainly come a long way since we met with you… Last night we managed to have dinner with my family at my Aunty’s house, & with a dark room, white noise & his sleeping bag & comforter, he happily went to sleep there!!! This is the first time we’ve been out in the evening in 7 months & not had to leave early as we couldn’t settle Patrick to sleep! A huge success for us!
It’s taken lots of time & energy, but I now feel like I know Patrick
so well & pick up on his sleep cues easily, avoiding an overtired baby
who fights going to sleep. Majority of sleeps, Patrick goes down
happily, chats/grizzles for 5-10mins & then is asleep! And we have a
beautiful evening/bedtime routine as a family.
Thank you for your guidance & support Lisa. I’m so grateful we found you!!!
