Funny you mention Aquaphor as thats the ointment I've found and been using from the first few days here!
Hiltons doing well using everything he can to stand as often and for as long as he can then flops down into the sitting position with the biggest smile! He moves around still crawling but much faster or uses furniture to get around. We lowered his cot yesterday just to prevent any accidents as he likes to pull up & move around his cot when he doesn't want to sleep!
His sleep patterns are changing too I think he's dropping his morning sleep. We have started to re introduce the self setting and it's working and he only woke last night because his nappy had overflowed and nose was blocked. Love cuddling up to hubby at night once again
