    Oh and I tried offering her a dummy at 5am though she's never taken one before. She kept it in for a few seconds, I got excited....then spat it out and pushed it away. Lol

    Good luck OP! Sounds like a pretty good first night. I used Jay Gordon's technique when DS was around the same age as your little one. I was so over the frequent night feeds. I thought it would be a disaster but it actually worked quite well and definitely improved his sleeping. I hope it works for you too.

    Night 2 update:

    Woke up twice. Quickly asleep after unlatched her at 11:45. Woke again at 02:00. Bit harder to settle when I unlatched this time l. Walked around with her, cuddling, she eventually fell asleep right on top of me while I was laying down, after an hour. Then slept until 0625. Good result so far!

    Night 3:

    She slept all night until 0500 when DS called out and she got woken up. Pretty amazing, she never sleeps that long and I've hardly done anything so far! I kept waking up in the night though as I'm not used to getting such a long stretch of sleep. I'm thinking that if she wakes tonight I'll still treat tonight like night 3 and feed but break her off early so she's got a little more time to adjust before I cut out feeds altogether between 11-6. As she didn't get any practice last night!

    Ha, thanks for the warning!
    AF came back 9 months post partum for me even though I was feeding around the clock so fingers crossed I'm aware enough to not let that happen just yet....I'd like some sleep before my next baby!

    Thank you I haven't heard of her so will take a look.

    My DD has actually got better mainly of her own accord without me having to really do much at all. All of a sudden. We are down to one wake up a night and sometimes she sleeps though until 5am. Much better. So I'm not pushing her too hard at the moment and still feed for that one wake up. Will wait until she's a few months older I think before trying to stop altogether as this is so much more sleep than I've been used to!

    So did you not end up doing the Jay Gordon thing? I will just add I'm in the same boat with my 13 mth old DD. Somewhere around 1 year of age she has been mostly on 1 wake-up requiring a feed but she goes straight back to sleep. As we side-car her cot I don't have to get out of bed, I just sit up to feed then transfer her back to her cot. I am definitely feeling more rested this way so I'll just wait and see what happens. Can you keep us up to date with how things go Bond Girl?
