I had the shortest one wake, but our first non-pull ups dry night, so also doing happy sleep dance

You must feel so rewarded!! All your efforts paid off. Well done!

popsycal Mon 19-Feb-07 08:03:59

Oh yes - need to add that he did iyt without me on his floor too....been weaning off that for the last 4 or so days!

I am feeling very pleased with myself!
CC just wasn't working a few months back. This tool persistence but it was the right option for ds2 (and me!)

Well done Popsy! I am so pleased for you.

how did you do it?tell me your secret?

Gobbledigook Mon 19-Feb-07 15:12:46


All power to you!! Ha ha! Bloody well done!

Well it has been a bloody nightmare. But nothing was working at all. I was going mildly insane and getting really cross with ds2 and really, it wasn't his fault. It has taken around 3 weeks I think. Not a quick fix but he was distraught doing CC - like vomitting distraught and very very attached and clingy (and night feeding and co-sleeping!!!)

He has not had a nap again today so will be ready for bed by 7 - if not slightly earlier. I think he will always be an early riser like his brother. Until about 6 months ago, ds1's normal wake up time was about 5am - so that isn't as big an issue for me!

Keep yuor fingers crossed. Am prepared for set backs but I do think it has been cracked. The final straw that got it sorted was ditching the cot and putting the mattress on the floor. He hated that cot!

popsycal Wed 21-Feb-07 07:11:16
