Monkey boy turned 20 months on 25th september and with it came sleep!
We’re by no means the model sleeping family yet. We still sit with him until he falls asleep and he still wakes for a second at around midnight to come in with us but other than that he is managing 7.30-7.30 most days.
I am a beacon of hope that even if you don’t ‘do’ anything that your little one will grow into sleep. Whether you can wait that long is another matter! If someone had told me at 4 months that it would be another year and a half before we had anything like a good night i’d have crumpled in a heap on the floor.
The truth is though that you get through it relatively unscathed, you learn to function with less sleep and the 4 or 5 night wakings start to fade from memory.
Our next hurdle in a few months is to move from co-sleeping to his own little bed. I hope I can hang on to my positivity and know that it’ll be ok no matter what but I have a feeling i’ll be on here tearing my hair out! watch this space…….
