Our little man is still sleeping, he went to bed at about 8.30-9pm last night.

We haven't heard a peep all night!!!!!!! He normally wakes about twice and we drap him into bed with us at around 5am.

We only moved him from cosleeping in our bed 1.5weeks ago.

I'm just amazed and I'll admit I've checked on him a few times since 6am happy.gif and I kind of want him to hurry up and wake so I can see him before I leave for work!

.......

he just woke during the typing of this. Unbelievable, very happy mummy!

Brilliant! My DS STTN once, actually it was only 7.5 hours, and he did it for my birthday, he hasn't dine it since sadly.

I hope this is the start of many restful nights for you both original.gif

Hiya hopetoun

See my thread from about 1.5weeks ago.

It went better than we had hoped. We kind of made a clean sweep all in one day of moving the cot, and DS all in one go. The first night was really tough, but for us, it has been worth it.

Good luck original.gif
