Friday, 6 September 2013: One Hundred and Fifty Nine Days Old
Ayla and I had our first bedtime fight last night, and it was a doozy!
We were in a battle of wits, Ayla and I. She wanted to sleep in my arms and I wanted her in her bed.
Every time I put her down she’d start crying. I tried every trick in the book and I even googled “getting a five month old baby to sleep” but there was no new information to help me.
The 20 minute cry-cuddle-go down-cry fiasco continued over and over… For three hours.
It’s seems it may have just been once off though (touch wood) because its 8 o’clock and she’s out for the count.
Thursday, 18 July 2013: One Hundred and Seven Days Old.
Well, Ayla survived her first night in a big girl bed!
She still wriggled sideways but there were no knots for me to cut out of her hair this morning 🙂
Ayla seems to be getting a better daytime nap routine too; she goes down for a couple of hours around 11am, and then again around 4.30pm.
I’ve been hanging for this routine to take shape for ages and I’m really hoping it lasts!
Even if I can count on a couple of spare hours to myself each day, it will make a world of difference to the house and paper work that’s piling up!
