aww i know exactly wot u mean, he kept wakin Scott n Holly up - which was bad for Scott as he at school - same as louise i expect, but i really hope it works for you! nothing worse than broken sleep - especially when u know there is no real reason for it!! xXx

shes never woke her up before wen theyve been in their own bedrooms so as long as shes just cryin and not screaming then shud be ok.
yer thats it shes not a newborn baby she dont need to be waking in the night so thats y its so frustrating and with me being stuck inside with kids recently i need me sleep so i can cope during day with them.
thanx for all ur help fingers crossed it will work tonight.
wen does keiren go to bed and wen dus he wake up?

he goes to bed between 7.30 and 8pm, and i wake him at 7.30am coz need to get him ready for the school run, but on a weekend etc i leave him to sleep and he wakes at about 9am.
he hasnt been crying at all for the past few nights, and its not every night anymore, just the occasional one, and if he does cry its only for about a min then he goes quiet again, so i hope it does help you too !!

Had the worst night ever with georgia last nite!!!!!!!!!!!!
wen she woke i tried to leave her see if she wud settle herself but she never and started screaming so i went in giv her dummy put banket on and i did this for an hour but she got hysterical and then louise woke up!!! so i had no choice but to giv her a bottle and she finally went to sleep but then she was up again at 4.45am scareaming so had to iv her bottle again as cudnt have louise up agen she was already gonna be tired for school.
so yesterday she had 30 mins nap then she went to bed at 6.45 till 10.45 then bak to sleep at 12.30 then bak up at 4.45 and bak to sleep at 5.15 till 8. so in total she had 8 hours 15 on the night plus 30 min na in day so 8 hours 45 mins!!!! that isnt a lot of sleep is it.
i really dont no what i can do now i cant leave her crying for an hour agen tonight so she ends up hysterical and then wakes louise up bt i cant keep up the habit of feeding her but i think the habit of feeding her works better as she dont wake louise up and she goes bak to sleep once she has her millk.

I've just had this with Caytlyn. Thankfully it only lasted 3 nights. Ended up having her in bed with me. Think it was due to her having a cold and teething thrown in for good measure. For a long time I have left a bottle of water in the cot with her. She happily gets a drink herself if she wakes up. Have you tried giving her just water when she wakes. I changed to giving her water in night at about 7 months and she was sleeping through after a couple of weeks. Hope it gets better for you soon hun. xx

How's everyone doing? Are your LO well?
My best friend is due her baby in 3 weeks and we are so excited
Ready for Christmas? Finally finished shopping and wrapped up.
Gotta get the food yet. OH will be cooking as usual ( his contribution for the year)
We are staying in and going out boxing day.
How's the sleepless nights with Georgia laura? Has it improved? Thomas is waking in the night but he's teething. Once he has a cuddle he goes back fine.

We are all ready for the big day too. Just one present not going to get here in time, but she's got plenty!
We are having a bbq on xmas day. Coming back to England on 29th and christening on 2nd.
Glad Georgias doing better Laura. Any news from the consultant yet, I'd be hacked off if i'd been messed around that much.
