She has finally learnt how to sleep through without a bottle! We slowly diminished the amount she was getting and three nights ago, we stopped all together. The first two nights she woke about 5 times crying and I had to soothe her back to sleep without the bottle. Last night OH's daughter was staying and I was dreading having to just give in an give her the bottle for fear of keeping her big sister awake on a school night. But she went to sleep at 6.30pm and was completely fast asleep until 7.30am this morning! I never thought we'd get here. For those of you struggling with bad sleepers, please believe it does get better eventually. When LO was waking 8-9 times a night and feeding at least twice (just one month ago!) I never thought it would get any better.
