The secret to baby sleep…

…stay in the world’s worst hotel. Think stifling heat, other kids’ sick dried onto the travel cot, a fan caked in that weird greasy dust that you have to use otherwise you’ll suffocate, and a nightclub downstairs pounding out bass. Forget your No Cry Sleep Solution, throw out that Controlled Crying manual, Baby Whisperer?? don’t make me laugh. No, all you need to do is to book into this particularly grotty budget hotel on the edge of Derby and your baby who wakes every 1 to 2 hours will sleep for 8 hours straight. Not a murmur.

Don’t believe me? I didn’t believe it either! But it was true. In the 184 days that he’s been alive the longest James has ever slept has been six hours and he’s done that five times. Stupidly part of me was annoyed about the sudden turnaround as I’ve been sleep training him for the last 6 weeks and not had a result as good as this. Ah who cares I’m claiming it as a sleep training victory!
