DD2 is not too bad. We've had a few nights in the past couple of weeks where she has been unsettled and wants to be right next to me - not in the co-sleeper. It's more day time napping here that is hit and miss. I find wearing her either in a wrap or Manduca helps, but the weather is hot and a baby that close is not pleasant.

:smt006 hi Snowie!!

Our nights have improved in the last few days (am I jinxing myself saying that??), and yes- day sleeps are more hit and miss here than before. I'm loving my ergo! It's been quite mild here lately (very odd), so it's been great! But when it's hot- I'm with you- not so nice! Feels so much easier when I remember that there are other Mums with bubs at exactly the same stage as us! And DD's smiles help me forget the tough bits!!

I know! I have been psyching myself up for it and thought we'd been spared... Then bam. We largely coslept anyway, but now we fully co-sleep. I'm feeding throughout the night (and worry that this might be creating an association that I can't sustain). Here's hoping it passes really soon! For DS the four month sleep regression lasted 2.5 years...

Definitely my last child :)
