… and relax

Loudboy’s sleep isn’t getting any better, but I’ve decided to relax and follow the Ginger Method of ignoring the books and doing what I need to get him to sleep. Take bedtime. We were really struggling with getting him to lie down and go to sleep, especially now he can stand up in his cot. The Books say Early Bed Happy Baby. If he’s tired or struggling to sleep, put him down earlier. So we said Sod the Books and looked at Loudboy in the evenings: he was having far too much fun crawling about to want to sleep. Now we wait until he’s nice and tired before bunging him in the bath and guess what? He goes to sleep. He still wakes up every two hours, but I am also trying to relax about that.
