|I slept all night in my own bed!|
In the end we went for a method where every time baby cries, you pick them up until they stop, then put them down again. If they cry, pick them up again. If they lie in the cot not crying, leave the room. If they cry go and pick them up again.... ad infinitum. And you know what - it worked. It took us three quarters of an hour the first night, but less and less as the week has gone by. The first few nights she then woke every two hours for a feed - I guess what she use to do in the co-sleeper - but even that has improved. Touch wood this will continue. I even managed to get her down for a nap upstairs this afternoon!
|All the extra energy means I can now sit up by myself!|
The reason I'm telling you this? Last night was Friday Night Sew In. I use to take part every month, and then lost it when the host changed. I found it last month but couldn't take part because Mia was not in bed. But this month.... I sewed!
I set aside the evening to finish working on a quilt for my Mother-in-Law. Linda had made a 16-block quilt using different types of disappearing nine-patch/four patch/pinwheel. I quilted it for her back in July, but couldn't bind it before we went on holiday.
And once I'd finished with the quilt I found time to make another mixtape block
I'm just going to make these until I come up with an idea for what to do with them! Did you join in FNSI?
