When me and Iwan moved in together Mia had her own bedroom, but she still came to my bed in the middle of the night. I wanted her to stop because I was pregnant and there was no way I could get comfy and have a good night sleep. So I put my foot down and kept taking her back to bed every time she woke up. It took patience and time but it was so worth it in the end. From then onwards Mia has slept all night by herself and I feel so so much better in the mornings - no more back pain YAY!
From my experience with Mia I told my self from the minute I found out I was pregnant that Elliw was going to sleep in her own bed from day one. Elliw would wake up every 2-4 hours. When we moved her to her own bedroom when she was around 7 months old and she slept all night. However when she was around 9 months old, when we put her down to bed she would cry for no reason at all until she would just nod off to sleep. She could cry for a good couple of hours.
Now that Elliw is in a single bed she still cries until she falls asleep, but this time she comes out of bed and she ends up sleeping on the floor! Just like the photo above. She will wake up most nights about once or twice or if it is a bad night it will be a couple of times.
Mia will wake up between 6am - 7.30am every morning and Elliw will wake up between 7am - 9am.
They will both go to bed at 6 - 6.30pm
