I just managed to settle my 10 month old baby for the first time IN THE COT for the first time ever. She then slept 7 hours straight. She has been a terrible sleeper since birth waking up every 1.5-2 hours til now. I didn’t do any sleep training. I am so happy. grin To all those tired mums and dads out there, it does get better!!

That is wonderful, a real breakthrough. Long may it last!

My baby had never slept anywhere but in my arms until he was 12 months and one day he fell asleep in the pushchair whilst I was hoovering, he's gone in there for naps ever since that day and it's amazing to now have an hour of freedom in the day 😂

Thank you, you have no idea how much I needed to read this today.

DD1 was always great at putting herself to sleep. I didn't have to do anything.

DD2 is almost 5 months and the effort I go to to put her to sleep is exhausting. I often wonder if it'll ever get better.
