We've spent the last 4 or 5 days teaching A to sleep in her cot and settle herself after we'd had an awful few weeks of her only sleeping on me and waking a lot at night.
Anyway, i've put her down for a nap and she settled herself, woke after 30 mins (as usual) but seems to be settling herself back down.
What do I do now?? I'm sat on my phone and watching the telly but feel like i should be doing something more productive!

ETA: - With the tea and TV of course.

I'd read. I never get the chance to read anymore

I don't drink tea or coffee, but will enjoy my juice lol
She doesn't nap very well during the day, which is why this is such a novelty! She didn't settle back down herself, but with a little help from me she's asleep again and for ober an hour this time..! She rarely goes longer than 30 mins.
Good idea about reading. Think i'm halfway through a book i started before she was born amd haven't picked up since...reckon i'll have to start from the beginning again!

How did you do it nenas?

She was asleep for 2.5 hours in the end! She has a bit of a cold though so think she needed the rest. She's never slept that long before lol

Bexy... we have been doing pick up/put down and its been going quite well. First day was really tough but she seemed to cotton on pretty quickly and we've made some really good progress!

That's brilliant nenas.. My little man goes down fine at night but I might try this for morning nap time as its a struggle!
