    A Growth Spurt, a Leap, Multiple Illnesses and the 10 Month Sleep Regression

    27th October 2019

    It’s been over a month since Felix last slept through the night. I hold my hands up to you Mamas whose babies have never slept through – I don’t know how you do it. Kudos to you, really. Because I am at breaking point.

    Leap 4: The Wonder Weeks Mental Leap at 4 Months Old

    2nd May 2019

    We are knee deep in The Wonder Weeks’ fourth mental leap and cannot believe the change in our baby over the last couple of weeks. We sailed through leaps 1-3, with hardly any fussy periods whatsoever, but leap 4 has really come to bite us on the butt. Our sleepy and content newborn son has…
