We are currently in the process of moving Timothy’s bedtime an hour later from 6pm till 7pm. This bedtime time alteration has been a great success so far. It’s changed settling Timothy from around two hours until approximately one hour until he’s sleeping soundly and allowed us to attend a friend’s BBQ and still getting home in time.
I have reintroduce a dream feed suggested by my lovely husband which simply is feeding while Timothy is asleep, this I do around 10pm and has again been very successful meaning Timothy has been waking up not as distressed for his next feed around 3 hours later.
Thankfully the new routine is working like a dream and comes as a very welcomed success after a few difficult nights.
Unfortunately the bedtime time transition means that Timothy needs constant entertainment to keep him happily awake until 7pm. This evening with my husband at Church I had to be the one entertaining after a couple of books, singing and dancing I resorted to my husband’s choice way of entertainment pulling Timothy along the settee and wafting a muslin blanket over him which he adores. This activity took a tired baby boy and transformed him into Mr Happy himself.
One hour since the bedtime routine began of feeding and putting Timothy in his crib, rocking it gently if he began to stir or rub his tummy I’m thankful for Daddy Karmas game which gave us 15 minutes of fun.
Happy Sunday Friends!
