    Hi Emma

    It certainly is a mixed bag at the minute!

    I’m not managing to start trying the settling pyramid yet – baby is still quite aggressively trying to feed whilst I rock her after songs in our routine. I’m having to bounce her to settle her down as she is pulling at my top, sucking on me and getting quite upset.

    So I’m ending up rocking her pretty much to sleep and then it takes a few attempts to be able to put her down. I’m doing the hands off approach – rocking and decreasing movement before I put her down and that’s working, it’s just she is still getting upset the first few times I try to put her down. We’re persevering and I hope it’ll click soon so we can move onto settling pyramid.

    In the meantime, she’s started lifting her legs and slamming them down on the mattress when she wakes at night. I’ve read this is a self soothing technique. Do you know anything about this? Should I ignore her and leave her to it unless she cries out for me so you think?

    And in other news she has mastered her first roll back to front, so lots going on developmentally!

    Still not getting anything longer than a two hour stretch of sleep at the min 🫠
