    Thanks all. I am appreciating your experience and advice so much. My self-confidence/mumma instinct/whatever it is is so low atm and I'm feeling a bit lost, so it's really helpful for me to have guidance and direction like this. Thanks for sharing your time and knowledge :-)

    Play it by ear. A one off deviation/sleep in won't hurt. Just stay consistent with what you can if it's appropriate (eg bedtime wind-down).

    With the SOS routine both my boys have grown up on you can stop waking at 7am once bub is on one nap. You just stay consistent with the day nap and bedtime. For older bubs/tots that are just getting used to a routine I would wait until they are well and truly settled and sleeping well before allowing sleep ins.

    Maybe compromise - if he loses a lot of sleep then give him an extra 30 in the morning and let him catch up in the afternoon.

    I find it easier to hold on to our set time even if he has a bad night we still get up the same thing time every morning. Nap is never more than 2 hours. He resets every day and knows what to expect.
    I am also trying a natural sleep drink. At 2 he is still not sleeping more than a few hours at a time. I'm up a lot at night to re-settle and bf. But he is doing better with going to bed.
    Good luck.

    He slept easily at 8 then woke up at 3, which I was expecting because he didn't want any food last night. He stayed awake til 4.30ish so I got him up at just after 7. So what's that? 9.5 hours?

    I might put him down for a little bit of an earlier nap I guess? I don't know!

    That's a pretty good night then.

    If your new schedule has you waking him at 7 and napping at say 12:30, if you woke him up at 7:15, I'd put him down at 12:45 but wake him from his nap at whatever time you usually wake him so you can still have the same amount of awake time in the afternoon and the same bed time IYKWIM

    I think you both did good 😘
    I'd probably try to put him down a bit earlier for his nap and see how he goes - so what you were going to do. Trust in mama Harvs - she be a smart woman.

    Well...

    I stuffed up...

    We were up for over an hour in the night (looooooong story) and I don't even remember my alarm going off this morning but it's 8.30 here now and we have just woken up.

    I feel awful, like the whole week has been wasted :-(

    What do I do today?
