Matthew and I graduated from the sleep clinic today! We went cold turkey and took the dummy away. I had a feeling that it was causing problems but had no idea of the change we would have without it. Matthew has gone from waking constantly to waking for a dream feed and then self settling for the rest of the night. For the first time in 6 months, I had a 5 hour stretch of sleep and feel like a new woman. All 8 babies in his group left today WAY better sleepers than the beginning of the week. We just have to hope that the good nights will continue while we are at home. I have the confidence now to continue with what they did at the clinic. They say the two most important things are being persistant and consistant. We still have a long way to go with self settling during the day after one sleep cycle, but I can already see improvements. Thoroughly recommend it to anyone!!!
