Carrie, great effort yesterday!!! it took Sophie a long time to be able to do it every day... And at first we were getting an hour at a time sad.gif but there is light!!!

Just remember that some days he may need an extra sleep while he is getting used to it.. life at that age (and my age wink.gif ) is very exhausting ...!!

Well you are absolutely right Emma! Three days this week he's needed 2 day sleeps again. He wakes up so early first thing and then can't last beyond 8:30am! So I just went with it.

Today though has been strange...I really thought he'd need 2 naps again as he woke up at 5:30am. He only lasted til 7:40am and slept til 9:30am. Then he wouldn't go down again until just now at 3pm he's finally asleep but of course I can't let him sleep too long or he won't go to bed tonight! It took a long time for him to fall asleep this afternoon, I don't think he really wanted to.

Its so hard to predict what they need. If I'd kept him up from 9:30am til bedtime tonight he would have been shockingly tired at dinner and bathtime!

Tomorrow is a daycare day so they'll keep him busy and up til 11:15am which will be good. I still can't book in any swimming or music classes as I don't know if he'll be asleep or not??!!

Oh well, its just one of those transitional times where I have to play it by ear and go with the flow, I find that difficult as Im such a routine person, hopefully by the new year he'll be fully sorted into one nap per day.

Well we had another 5am start today, not cool. So we've bought THIS blackout blind in the hope that it will help. We didn't pay $80 for it though, we bought a new one off ebay in the UK for only $50 including postage. That strong Aussie dollar is awesome! Lets hope it helps!
