Dd has slept through since 8weeks (lucky me) but for the last week has been waking up around 2 ish crying. Im thinking its her teeth, she doesn't have any yet, as shes dribbling, chewing fingers, high temp, runny nappies. I know she'll be fine with dp but id hate the thoguht of her sobbing when she realises im not there. For the past month she's became very clingy and wary of strangers. Ive been leaving her with dp while i go shopping etc and other than a few little moans shes been fine. Night time might be a bit different.

Oh and apart from the last week ive been having full nights sleep. Its going to be a big shock to the system.

Sorry im only getting back to you now. I know what you mean about the baby sobbing when she realises you arent there sad. Im really trying to stay calm and positive so that my DD doesnt pick up any of my anxiety.

Hopefully it goes smoothly for us both and the babies adjust to their new routine.flowers

Hope things go smoothly for you.
Dd has got a viral infection, shes been up for the last three nights crying most of the night. Not what i needed less than 2 weeks until i go back. Im hoping it passes soon and she settles back into her normal routine.
