|Merryn in the play room|
I was very, very nervous going into the night, I didn't think it was going to go well at all. Merryn surprised me. The plan was no co-sleeping, breastfeeding or cuddling or patting to get to sleep. Mez was to go cold turkey in a cot with me coming in and out to her and putting my hand on her if she needed it. Of course it wasn't that perfect and I did pick her up twice, but she did sleep in the cot all night, she only had one feed at 11:20pm and she only woke at 11:20pm, 1:30am and then 5:45am (when she went back for another hours sleep (that was a surprise!). There was some screaming and hysteria, but it wasn't for hours on end like it usually is. They must have something in the food here. :)
So day 1 is down, 3 more to go. I hope it keeps going as well.
