God, i can sympathise with the sleep thing - DD is nealry 8 months old and hs only gone through 6 times, never 2 nights in a row. Sometimes she's up for 1.5 hours refusing to go back to sleep in her cot. i nealry smothered her when at my Mums over Easter, its driving me mad.
Dylsmum - glad DD is getting the hang of it - what a clever girl!
Thankfully DD is sleeping better now. Last night i had a great night's sleep, all thanx to swaddling. Lately she's been clawing at her face when she's tired and quite often does it in her cot, which pulls her dummy out and wakes her up. Last night i swaddled her and hey presto! She slept really well (and so did i!). Dont know why i didn't think of it sooner - d'oh!! Still no teeth yet tho.
What are you all up to this weekend? Anything nice?
oh dear dd is cutting her canine teeth. she's never been one for complaining when she teeths just tends to sit up playing with me all night. last night was so different poor baby. she was hitting her face and holdng her mouth with that much pain. so we not had much sleep here last night. hope everyone else got more sleep. we are going to London on Saturday to the museum of childhood, partly for the dc and partly for getting some ideas for one of my assignments i need to rite over th eeaster hols? anyone else got any plans?
it was not a good night for poor little thing, she's never been iin that much pain with her teeth, horrible to see. i knocked her out with medised to help. she is much better this morning she slept in late this morning, and when we got back from school i had a look and then offending tooth has peirced the skin so hopefully it won't cause her so much pain now. am dreading the other 3 coming through now!
glad your little one is sleeping well. I'm of how well she slept last night
