Just thought I'd give an update on sleep. Seems we're over the terrible patch again and back to satisfactory. I think the 'bad' patches come in cycles, probably has to do with growth spurts etc.
So she is settling more quickly again in the evenings, I'm usually outta there by 8 o'clock again. phew! But we'll see - take it one day at a time.
The not so good part is that she wakes at 5.30am now. Bit too early for my liking I'm afraid. Luckily though she is happy to come in to bed with us and feed and lie reasonably quietly for an hour.
I hate that I am so obsessed with sleep. I know that I am more laid back than some - I'm not obsessed about getting her to 'sleep through the night' and yet, sometimes it feels like every waking moment I'm thinking about sleep. It's not so much my sleep I worry about as hers. Ah well, life as a mum I suppose.
