We’ve been so lucky to work with the Infant Sleep Consultants and Bubbaroo on the #BubbarooBabySleepDiary project over the past month. You can find all of our previous posts here.
Day Twenty-seven: Wednesday 14th October
Not a great night, but not the worst either! Worked out quite well, however, as I had to drop Busby off at Nursery this morning, so at least I was
Not the best night – slept 11.30-2.30, then woke up until around 4am, then up again at 6am and now awake at 7.30am #bubbaroobabysleepdiary

Indy slept well during the day today – I think he was fairly tired after the night. He did some lovely posing for our Bubbaroo Joey Swag sleeping bag review.
Day Twenty-eight: Thursday 15th October
Hurrah! A fab night!!! A nice long stretch… For some reason, the more sleep we get, the more exhausted I feel!
Indy and I had a really chilled day around the house today. He only slept a total of 1.5 hours all day until he conked out at 7.30pm!
Day Twenty-nine: Friday 16th October
An absolutely fantastic night!
7.30-11.30 in sling then 11.45-6am in crib good stuff!!! #bubbaroobabysleepdiary

What a star!
We had our initial consultation with the Osteopath today. It was so odd as he didn’t seem to do anything but walk around the room with Indy, feeling his head, but Indy seemed very relaxed! Indy is a very tense baby and the Osteopath thinks this is due to my very fast labour, and compression of the neck against his skull on his quick exit out. He thinks that Indy suffers from headaches, which is why he squishes his head up against the sides of the cot, and likes the pressure of the sling against his head; he’s trying to relieve the pressure. He agrees that it’s more than likely he has an intolerance to lactose sugar or cow’s milk protein too – so we need to visit the doctor again, although will be requesting a different doctor. We have to see the Osteopath every week for the next 3-4 weeks, but he is confident that we will have a different baby by the end! I’ve also been given exercises to try at home in the bath with him.
Indy has had a temperature this evening, so I’m not envisaging a good night…
Day Thirty: Saturday 17th October
Dreadful night. Indy was up a lot with his temperature…
We ended up with Calpol all over his lovely Bubbaroo Joey Swag bag *sob* I really hope the pink comes out!
Apparently the cranial osteopathy treatment can exasperate teething symptoms and unleash any illnesses that might be underlying! Joy! He’s teething for England!
Indy has been quite lovely today – he’s been happily playing on his back for periods of time, which is very unlike him! We’re sleeping over at the in-laws tonight, so he’ll be in a travel cot… I don’t think we’ll be sleeping much tonight!
Day Thirty-one: Sunday 18th October
HE SLEPT! Albeit, not all night, but he actually slept in the travel cot!
Slightly better night – 11-3am then 4-7.45am In the travel cot too as we stayed over at in-laws! #bubbaroobabysleepdiary

He rolled himself over a few times in the night and, as he won’t sleep on his back, I had to roll him back over, but he woke up at about 7.45am on his back and chatted to the curtains rather merrily. We were in the car a fair amount today as I was at an event in Manchester, and he was (on the whole) fine! This is for a baby who HATES the car.
Day Thirty-two: Monday 19th October
Not the best night…
I think he would have slept for longer than 2am if Busby hadn’t woken up.
I fell asleep feeding him and we both woke up at 5am as he searched for my breast again. He finally went back to sleep in his crib about 6am until 8am.
He’s currently asleep in the sling as I type this, and I’m hoping he’ll have another happy day today!

Our time with Bubbaroo and the Infant Sleep Consultants is sadly coming to an end shortly. I’ll be writing a final summary post in the next few days, with some top tips from Annie our sleep consultant. I’ll also be featuring the gorgeous, cosy Bubbaroo Blankie blanket we were sent for Indy in a review post!
