I'd definitely do stories in the room or cot to help set the scene x

I tried stories in her cot and she screamed her head off because she wanted the book! Lol!

So I scrapped that idea. She so nearly fell asleep on her own! She only wanted to be picked up a few times. The last time she was virtually asleep.

I'll try stories tomorrow before I put her in the cot and see if that works. X

Thank you!

And she slept through! I'm so proud of her. 

Let's hope it continues. X

Wowzers!

Same again last night. Asleep by herself by 8:40pm and slept all the way through until 6:15am.

I'm hoping it's not a coincidence! X

3rd time unlucky! 😫

I held her to sleep in the chair, she was very clingy last night. I'd been out for an hour or so in the afternoon and she was very clingy when I got back. Up in the night too and just wouldn't settle so I put her in our bed. She's got a cough and a sniffle again so I'll let her off 😝 

Try again tonight. 😬

Sometimes there is a regression after some new techniques so keep persisting x
