Miracle Blanket

Well last night was great! Ben slept from 7pm – 4am had a feed then slept again until 7.10 a.m This is such a change from the last week of waking a few times then not settling again and deciding 5am is morning time.

I put him in a footless sleepsuit but he was a bit chilly so put a thin blanket over his legs on top of the swaddling.

The blanket stayed swaddled which I am impressed with – although he did manage to get a leg out

Bad Nights Again

Ben has been sleeping for 11 hours at night straight through for the last couple of week. The last 3 nights he has been awake every 4 hours again. I tried settling him but he cried with hunger and then takes between 2 – 6 oz. He does go back to sleep fairly easily after the feed.He did this randomly once last week too – so don’t think it is a growth spurt. He has been having the same amount of milk during the day.It’ll teach me for being all smug he was doing the 11 hours

I moved him into his own room last week into his big boy cot. The swaddling has become a real issue as no matter how tight I do it he is getting out, but it does work. Think I need to buy a miracle blanket on ebay. I have put him back on the SMA LF today as I just don’t think he is over the lactose intolerance.

He has developed a cold today also – that has maybe be coming for the last few days too!  I will just have to see what happen for the next while
