Alex will be spending at least most of tonight (and hopefully all of it) in his own bedroom. He has been spending his evenings in there before his last feed but since he had a stomache bug just over a week ago he has not slept through from 11 until 7. He’s taking bigger bottles each day and we hope he’ll be sleeping through again soon but until we’re confident that this might happen we aren’t waking him for a 10 or 11pm feed. Instead we’re leaving him to wake us around 1am so that the 3-4 am witching hour can be avoided.
Maria meanwhile is experimenting with a duvet. For as long as she can remember she’s been in a ‘grow bag’ which is like a zip up sleeping bag with a couple of holes to let her arms out, which leaves her no way to uncover herself. First sleep with the duvet this afternoon worked well and as you can see she invited Wonkey Donkey to snuggle up to her. Tonight has not been as successful and she had to be re-covered a few minutes ago.
