Thats what we did. DS only had one nap a day but did cc so that he carried on having it. It worked better than I thought it would. good luck x x

Yep you've got it right that's exactly what you do, apparently it can all go pear shaped about day four, but if you make it past then, once you get by the 1st week, its all sinking in and gets easier! Go girl, good luck.

Thanx guys, I did feel like burrying my head in the garden last night but we did start to see an improvement. It started off really bad but then he gradually got calmer by 30mins he was asleep on his belly, but we managed to put him on his back without him fussing. It took 2hrs and 45mins in total.

Wow - I just beat you first night of CC with DS1 (when he was 6 months old) took 2hrs 52 minutes.

A bottle of wine is often helpful for the 'extended' leaving them times
