well i went out saturday and guess what zane slept all night for him 9pm till 9am.

but last night he was such a nightmare :'(

weve decided to take one side off his cot bed to see if that made things better for him with a side guard, he seems to like it but i dont no if hes sleeping any better with it as he had to come in my bed last night

i think ive cracked it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

when we went away last weekend Ffion slept really well and i couldnt figure out why, then when we came home she was a nightmare again, then on friday we went out for a meal and Wobbles came to babysit..again she slept really well all night and then went back to being a nightmare!

then yesterday it clicked!

every time she was great (great= waking for 1 bottle then going back to sleep) we had given her milk for her night feed instead of water. we did this whilst we were away because i didnt want different tap water upseting her tummy and on friday i did it because it was easier for whilst we were out. she also had supper each night she was ok.. like toast/wheetabix.

so lastnight i gave her supper quite late then sent her to bed with a bottle of milk and put another bottle of milk in her cot. i heard her wake around 1am..she fussed a little.. found her milk and went back to sleep.. she then woke at 7am!!!!

to be honest i was giving her water to try and cut out her night feed thinking she wouldnt wake once she realised she wasnt getting milk. WRONG, turns out that she needed that milk bottle in order to be full enough to sleep longer

but fingers crossed it stays this way!... mummy got 9hours sleep lastnight instead of the usual 5!!!

glad she seems to be sleeping better with a night milk.

zane goes to bed with a bottle of milk and his dummy then i take water and milk powder to bed with me to give him in the night because when he "wakes" in the night he doesnt actualy wake up he screams in his sleep, so when a bottle doesnt help its a nightmare.

zanes in his toddler bed now with a side guard just incase and he seems to like it and wont get out till hes told the sweetheart lol but ive just put him down for a nap and he walked and climbed right into bed n lay down i felt like crying hahah hes growing up so fast

Yes I do have it lucky, Helena does usually sleep, just wakes up once and goes back to sleep right after a change and bottle.

Last week she had some bad few nights though. One night she was up from 11 - 7. So hopefully I won't be in this thread much (and same with you ladies!)

Only just seen this.

Well, AJ still wakes in the night screaming - for what I dont know?
ATM its particularly bad as he's got cold so cant sleep due to having a serverly blocked nose.

Last night though, he slept through??? But I'd only made 1 change. I propped the end of the cot up with a pillow. I have found he likes to sleep with a pillow, so maybe propping the cot seems like a pillow to him?

Were also trying to get AJ to go down awake but thats also knocked on the head with AJ having a cold atm.

Hope everyone got some rest last night. x
