UPDATE: The house is finally back to normal, and the day after everyone went home, he got ALL of his naps in, evening was pants, but the night went quite well!! But I'd stupidly booked my friend to come over on Thursday all day for a photoshoot (the photos will be GORGEOUS!!) - there was so much hubbub and things going on that he couldn't sleep (when we especially wanted him to for his photos!) and ended up being WILDLY ot! We've been playing catch-up ever since!!
BUT! I was *so* proud of him yesterday morning. We'd tried to get to sleep for 1hr15m and he wasn't having it. I tried putting him in the sling so I could make some more bottles, but he just SCREAMED! I thought, well - I've got to get these bottles made, and I need a break! So I just lay him in his basket with a rolled blanket at one side and went downstairs...30 seconds later - SILENCE. I came back up with the laundry... and he had put himself to sleep ON HIS OWN, IN HIS BED!!! I was so excited, I called DH at work with the news! He slept for 1hr45!! The rest of the day went to pot, but there was a glimmer of hope for me!!
I've decided to hermit-ise myself for the next couple of weeks and really get into a proper routine. We're on 3hr EASY, but I don't really stick to my guns - I don't wake to feed if he's been tired and needs to sleep...and I think if I start doing that, then within a few days maybe he'll learn to get the sleep where he can/should?? Here's hoping!!
Will let you know! Thank you for your support!!!
