BK: boys names are realllllllly hard, so much harder than girls names. im almost tempted to find out the sex just so i know whether we need to keep struggling with a boy name or can use the girl name weve had picked from like day one.... yep waking up and having to stay up for 2.5 hours in the night is not fun when u have to drive over an hr to work the next day..ive notived since being UTD that i really dont cope well physically or emotionally with H;s nightime antics....plus im planning to go back more days if everything goes ok so we can get more mat leave $$$ so H MUST learn to sleep thru. glad to hear no GD so far.
mum4nay: i posted b4 but it didnt work....hope the feet thing work itself out. are u small?
amum: i have let him cry for more than 5 mins b4 (when i havent coped with it, just had to let him cry....) he is so friggin determined, he wont quit. seriously he has a bad temper too , gets so worked up he throws the bottle across the room, gee wonder where he got that from????
anyway i donwloaded the 1-5 yr old sleep and settle manual last night..they do suggest a different technique onece they are standing up...our problem was that even tho we stopped his bottle cos he would scream and still not sleep we got into the habit of getting him up ....anyway we will start from sunday night as my DH is on arvo's so he can sleep in when h goes thru his no doubt 1.5 hrs of crying first few nights..i did find that yesterday he only had maybe on hr sleep all day and sleep better, didnt wake til 4am, he has been waking at 11-12 each night. she also goes on about day routines and conflicting routines of carere and this definately havsnt helped as i know sometimes H is given a bottle in his COT! omfg..that is like heroin for a bottle addict like him.
