Banished baby to his own room.


My 22 day old has a beautiful bassinet in my room, that he has never slept in. In fact this baby has slept on my chest for all 21 nights of his earth side existence. If he’s not on my chest we have hours of unsettled crying and wriggling around and no one sleeps.

Well yesterday I set up the portacot in his room, I popped him on his tummy (the only way he will sleep) and I kid you not, he slept for 4 hours. He woke, fed and would go back to sleep for another 3-4 hour stretch.

Last night was his first night alone in his room and we are all so much better off for it. I’m so glad we found a solution!
