Sleep...

So Henrik has been sleeping in his room for three nights now. 
First night was good, he woke up once or twice but nothing that a nappy change, cuddles, some teething gel and dummy  wouldn't sort out. 
The second night was not good. He woke up various times and was inconsolable. We went through the usual check list of nappies, dummy etc but nothing worked. He is teething quite a lot at the moment so that has been keeping him awake a bit but usually the teething gel helps, not that night...I even gave him some calpol but he was still not a happy bunny. In the end we decided to go to sleep and hope he would do the same, we fell a sleep and he did the same eventually. In the morning we were exhausted and Henrik was full of smiles before he fell back to sleep and didn't wake up until 9.30.
Last night was a good one, he stirred once, I went and put the dummy back in his mouth and the next thing we knew was hearing John Humprys and Carolyn Quinn on the radio when the alarm went of. We couldn't even remember the last time we were actually been woken up by the alarm rather than a cooing or crying baby! Very nice indeed :)
