…in case anyone wonders… is no. She didn’t sleep. She woke up at 11pm and didn’t go back to sleep until 3am, by which time i had reluctantly started on “put her in her cot and leave her there” as an option. 🙁
Still, i guess this is one particular flogging rod i can now break over my knee; i always assumed Fran’s noctural habits were due to poor parenting style, not being breastfed, general incompetence, being pregnant again and her consequently hating me. Turns out some babies are just noctural then, because whatever else, i’ve been spot on brilliant as a parent to Josie since the moment i was fit to look after her.
Guess she’s going to pay me back for all those perfect new baby nights then.
Mind you, last night i discovered she can sing Row, Row Row your Boat – brilliant for someone not yet 13 months but perhaps a little grating in the witching hours 🙄
