Once more I'm staggering round the house,
Nope! Millie has hit another period of sleep regression. The 2 year sleep regression! And hopefully the last.
Millie usually wakes about twice a night.
Now she will settle back again quickly once she is replugged with her dummy but a week ago on the second wake up, which could be anywhere between 5 and 6.30, she would come in to our room and look like she would settle but, instead, she would fidget and clamber all over me then eventually get out of bed trying to pull my hand demanding to go downstairs for breakfast. After a couple of nights of tough love and refusing to bring her into our room she started settling back down in her own room again.
The constant cough and congestion can't be helping much either though neither of these appear to be the cause of her waking.
I really hope we are near the end of the phase now otherwise the drunken stumbles will be the result of alcohol and not just the lack of sleep!
