It is safe to say that Teddy isn’t the best sleeper. He can also be quite highly strung, especially during leaps or growth spurts. He slept fine up until the fourth leap, which you can read more about in his Four Month Update, only waking twice (sometimes once) in the night. However as soon as that fourth leap hit, we took a massive step back and he was up every hour in the night, wouldn’t settle in his crib and refused to be put down during the day. We are now well out of the leap and sleep still isn’t much better, mainly now due to the fact that he is teething but that doesn’t make the wake ups any easier. He’ll sleep 8-11, 11-3 and then he’s up every hour until we get up at 8/8:30am. He’s so restless at night and we are back co-sleeping as it’s the only way he’s settled. I’m perfectly happy co-sleeping and if you read my Dear Mama: Co-Sleeping & Why It’s Okay post, you will know that I am a huge advocate for doing whatever you need to do to get some sleep, but I think once we are back from our holiday to Wales (where we will be co-sleeping to save lugging a travel cot), I am going to try and get him settled back into his crib.
Teddy only has one plug socket in his bedroom and we will be using that for his GroEgg, so that fact that the soother is powered by batteries (4 x AA) is so handy for us and can be placed on his chest of drawers or one of his shelves. It also means you don’t have loads of wires hanging all over the joint.
