Good night sleep is just around the corner ...... well so we thought!

After having to get up every three hours during the night for the past six months to feed and cuddle Madeline, it was time to take action! Sleep deprivation is slowly but surely sending me insane!!

Following advice from the wonderful Robin Barker (Baby Love), we started a "teaching to sleep" plan over the past week. The plan is supposed to take 3-5 days to work.

We were having some very promising results with Madeline at her best sleeping from 7pm to 5am and then after a feed back to sleep until 7am. It as great - we were able to enjoy an evening without baby and even able to enjoy of couple of glasses of wine.

Unfortunately, Madeline is now showing early signs of getting a cold, so the plan is now on hold until the sniffles stop. Just as we were getting a taste for a good thing. Anyway, watch this space - we will get sleep!!
