    Hi Emma

    I don’t want to count my chickens too much, but last night I did the first watch and listen from outside of our room with the monitor. I didn’t watch and listen for as long as I’d have liked… she sleeps in a next to me crib with the side down, but as I was watching it looked as though she was going to roll out of it, so I had to rush up and put the side up on it for the first time. After that I did have to pick her up to settle her, and I thought that the change in crib set up might confuse her so I did fully settle her, but she went down straight away and didn’t wake again until 3.5hours later, which is massive! She hasn’t done that since before this all started!

    She still woke every 90mins to 2hours after that, and I am still feeding her back to sleep in those instances, but she was going straight back to sleep, so all in all a pretty good night.

    And this morning I put her down for her first nap of the day and i literally sang her a song whilst rocking, shushed for seconds, put her down and left the room and she went straight to sleep and slept for an hour and a half! The rest of the day’s naps were not as successful.

    So maybe it’s all starting to click…

    Also I’ve turned the white noise up a bit and wonder if that’s helping too.

    So now she’s in her crib in our room, and she’s been napping in her big for in her room, so I’m hoping the transition will be ok. But I don’t think we’ll do it until she’s got the hang of self soothing and we’ve got weaning underway!

    I’ll keep you posted on how it’s going! I’m sure there’ll be a few more bumps in the road.
