    Hi Emma

    Just thought I’d update you!

    Baby is doing really well AND we have moved her into her own room.

    She is going down for most naps and bedtime pretty much immediately now and she’s been self soothing between sleep cycles. She’s started to settle herself on her side, and this is what she does to self soothe when she wakes up.

    She was trying to do this in her crib next to me in our room and just didn’t have the space so it felt like the right time to move her to her own room.

    She’s been in there for almost a week now and the first night was brilliant. Then we’ve had a few nights that weren’t so great, which I think was caused by teething. We’ve been giving her a bit of paracetamol when she won’t settle back down and her cheeks are flushed and that’s definitely helped.

    During those nights before we realised it was probably teething pain keeping her up, she was waking a lot and I was feeding her back to sleep, but I think now the stretches might be starting to increase. We’re getting closer to three hours at a time, so hopefully that’ll keep increasing.

    I’ll keep you posted, but just wanted to say thanks for all your help and advice!
