Adden how did you get on with the second opinion?
Nicsta has Ivy's sleep improved? Since we came to nz last week AJ has turned into a monster! He's now waking every hour absolutely screaming. We're in the same room so we are picking him up to cuddle him and I feed occasionally if I don't think he'll go back to sleep. But it's killing me. I can't wait to get home and back to our normal routine! I'm thinking it's a combination of teething but also night terrors, possibly from being too hot. Dh and I both get night terrors when we overheat so it wouldn't surprise me. I postponed my admission to Tresillian but thinking maybe I need to go back on the list when we get back.
Kmvw AJ went through a phase of biting. I used to detach him (usually quite forcefully from the shock of the bite) then put him on the floor. I figured if he wasn't drinking he must be finished! We'd also tell him in a firm voice no biting and he did seem to learn. He still gets me occasionally but nothing like he used to. I don't know where to start with discipline either. I guess just start being consistent with responses. Good luck!
So AJ now has 6 teeth with more moving. He's well and truly on the move. Crawling though he prefers commando, cruising the furniture and pushing a walker. Wonder how long before he walks proper. He just wants to walk everywhere! We are doing mums group, swimming and occasionally rhyme time but I want to try some new activities. Any ideas?
Sorry for the novel! Hope you all have a wonderful xmas!
