monday musings

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.  Mine was spent watching films/eating seasalt and cider vinegar crisps/making cups of tea whilst husband tiled the bathroom/an afternoon cuppa with friends/a family walk/doing a jigsaw and finished with a Sunday roast at my mums.

Some big changes have happened recently for Fletcher.  Over the last couple of weeks we have weaned him off his dummy completely, he has started to have some formula in the day {I'm phasing out the breastfeeding slowly} and we started sleep training last week which has resulted in him sleeping brilliantly again.

We started the sleep training because Fletcher had started waking up in the night again and couldn't settle himself.  I had always breastfed him to sleep at night and from the age of 7 weeks he would sleep right through from 8pm-7am.  But then suddenly he started waking in the middle of the night for his dummy to soothe himself as I assume he had associated sucking with sleeping, that was fine to begin with as he would fall back to sleep in seconds but then he started waking more often and the dummy wasn't enough, he wanted boob!  I ended up feeding him in the night again just to get him to sleep {rather annoying when he had slept so brilliantly in the beginning} So over the last couple of weeks we changed up the routine and started putting him to sleep in his cot awake with a soft teddy and a little night light and do you know what IT WORKED!!!!  He now sleeps from 7pm-7am and I'm as happy as a clam.  He just needs to master daytime naps now..........he's never been a fan of those.

Keep Smiling
