    That's great! We've been going one hour 17 minutes so far, DH's turn at the moment. I'm honestly going crazy. Anyway, it sounds like the big bed, etc is working for you guys. Do you have a problem with her getting up in the middle of the night or trying to climb out of the bed while you put her to sleep?

    ETA: 8.56pm. Finally asleep. 2 hours again tonight. Argh!!!

    Yea DD1 does wake up in the middle of the night but she hasnt yet worked out that she is in a bed not a cot. So she just calls out for us. plus she is in a sleeping bag still so is very hampered in her movements.

    IF she is fighting sleep then we put her next to the wall and lie down next to her so she cant really move other than climb over us which is quite hard in a sleeping bag.

    It will get easier... good luck

    ps. we've had to tweak a few other things ie nothing sweet even fruit after midday, dinner at 5pm so she has digestion time. Tho I fell asleep with newbie yest and forgot to wake up DD1 after 2hrs so she slept for almost 3 and still went to bed early. We are going to try letting her sleep as long as she needs in case she was getting overtired and thats why she takes too long to put to bed. let you know how we go tonight.
