Sorry you had a crap night Beta.
I had a fab night sorry, my DH took Ella to the lounge room and took care of her all night. I didn't know, he didn't wake me and I slept from 11.30 to 6.45 when my boobs woke me up!
I feel great, it's amazing how clear your head is when you have sleep. It's been awhile since I have had rem sleep, probably a few months now since I didn't sleep well in hospital.
In regards to settling I have worked out a cheeky way of making Ella sleep, I run two fingers down her forehead over her eyes. She gets tired of opening her eyelids because I'm stroking them and falls asleep. It seems to work!
I haven't used a grow bag as yet, Ella is too small and her arms keep her awake so we swaddle and she loves it.
