Back in the cot

After a terrible night on Sunday when Chops was awake from 1-4am in bed with me, kicking, wriggling and generally being a pest, we decided that maybe it was time to call an end to co-sleeping (after all, if we’re not getting more sleep from it, what’s the point?) — so last night, after every waking, back in the cot he went. And actually, it wasn’t that bad — he woke every two hours, which involved a bit more effort than when he was in bed with me, but settled back into the cot after a quick feed. (This may sound like a terrible night but, believe me, the three-hour waking was much worse.)

Next week we’re moving house and Chops will finally have his own room (at 6 months he’s hopefully ready to make the move). So it’s good to try to have him in his cot all night, ’cause I don’t really want to be lugging him across the landing at 1am. Now, if only I could crack that feeding-to-sleep business…
