Joey's Sleep update

About a month ago I posted about how Joey's sleep was something of a nightmare since Christmas, read here. Well it's been a month and things are looking great!

So the good news is that Joey is pretty much sleeping through through the night in his own bed. We've only had a few nights where he's woken up through the night but we think it could have been a bit of teething. He's been really great and it's such a relief for mummy and daddy to finally get our bed back...Chris is more thrilled...I just want to sleep. The bad news (sort of) is that it takes atleast half an hour to get him to sleep. He won't just go to sleep on his own straight away, he stands up in his cot and tries to empty the draws at the end of his cot. So I stay in his room with him until he falls asleep. When he stands up in his cot I just lay him back down without saying anything, after a few times he gets tired and falls asleep.
It is a bit tricky to exit his room without him waking, he has floorboards in his room and the odd one creaks. So it most likely takes me about 5 attempts to leave his room. Most mornings Joey wakes up by moaning but last week he was still asleep at 8am, didn't even stir when I opened the blinds and put his bottle next to him. Also with the lighter nights it means that we put him to bed a little later. As long as we stick to our routine I'm hoping he'll manage to get himself to sleep at some point. 

It's only been a month but I'm happy with the progress we've made so far. Have you had a similar experience with your toddler? I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for reading
