Sleep, a fragile thing

September 28, 2009

Just a quickie before I go up the stairs to Bedfordshire and make my way to the Land of Nod. There is a fabulous Sleep Deprivation carnival over at Sleep is for the weak, with some amazing posts to be read.

On this subject we seem to have the bedtime routine cracked, Piran has a bath leading to a bottle at 7pm and then is down awake in his cot by 7.30 and stays there happily putting himself to sleep. I am still doing two night feeds, getting up between 11.30 – 12.30 and 3.30 – 4.30 every night at the moment. If he would just drop one it would be nice, but at least Mr C and I get to eat dinner in peace each night at 7.30 and we can spend some quality time together in the evenings, doing things we love (okay, watching tv yawning but at least it is together).

After reading all these posts I see that we are lucky and I hope that this will continue but it seems to be a fragile thing!

Right now though I am going to have a quick cuppa and then go make like a cactus and go to sleep!

    I love that name – the semi-cactus position!
