Ruby, thanks for the update! I can't believe Charlie is crawling everywhere and standing already! But thank goodness both he and you are getting more sleep these days. I agree, bad sleepers are the worst. As for Harry, I can totally sympathize. The toddler/preschool age is so difficult! My daughter is super stubborn and pushes my buttons all the time, and my oldest son is super hyper and throws things and hits everyone. Thankfully my two year old is pretty easy going most of the time, but he can be a bit dramatic.

Levi is doing well. He sleeps from 7pm-7am most nights, which is awesome, because the other three kids didn't sleep through the night until after they were a year old. He sits up pretty well, but thanks to some torticollis, he leans his whole body to the right sometimes, which causes him to tip over a lot. None of my kids have crawled before 8 months, so I think we've still got time before he's mobile.

As for me, we were NTNP, but after two chemicals in a row, we decided that maybe we need to take a break and let my body recover from 4 kids in 4 years, so we're WTT until next October.

So sorry to hear of your chemical Spiffy! That's so horrible! Big hugs to you xxx
I can't imagine being pregnant again or trying for that matter. Possibly because Charlie hasn't been then easiest baby and partly because we always imagined just having 2 so I feel very much done.

Good to know I'm not the only one with a little rascal! I have to really work on my patience with Harry though because getting cross only escalates the situation in most cases!

So glad you got a good sleeper finally! Makes the world of difference once they are sleeping through the night and you feel well rested!!

All the best for you future TTC journey xxx

I should add that the only reason Levi is such a good sleeper is because my husband was the one getting up with him at night (bless his soul). My first reaction when babies wake up at night is to feed them in hopes that they'll sleep longer, but then they end up drinking less during the day because they want to be fed at night. My husband wasn't such a pushover, and sure enough, he started drinking more during the day and sleeping longer at night. I just have no willpower when I'm half asleep!

Wow that's a very interesting theory Spiffy!! I'm totally the same, if they wake I just feed because I know it'll get them off quicker in the short term but in the long term it does cause us other problems 😖
