By the time we got home it was 6:45pm. He normally goes to bed at that time so I didn't think he'd have any problems sleeping. Wrong. The night went something like this......
7pm- finish bottle, has medication, daddy puts him to sleep
730pm- Max wakes up. Mummy cannot get him back to sleep so reads some stories.
8pm- Mummy desperately plays every relaxation track on YouTube to get him to sleep
845pm- Max is finally asleep
1130pm- Max is awake again. Mummy gives him a bottle and change his nappy.
1144pm- Max doesn't want to sleep. Max wants to practice putting the dummy in his mouth and pulling it out again.
1230pm- Max is finally asleep again. Mummy goes to the loo cos by then she's busting.
1232pm- Max is awake again. Mummy contemplates selling him on eBay.
1243pm- Max is asleep again.
214am- Max is awake again, blowing raspberries.
216am- Mummy tries to give Max a bottle. Max isn't hungry. Nappy change.
245am- Max is still awake. Mummy gives up and calls in daddy.
3am- Max is asleep again
445am- Max is awake again
5am- Max is asleep again
530am- Max is awake again. Mummy and Daddy concede defeat and make coffee.
So everyone was a little bit fed up on Thursday, including Max who was a low-medium grade of feral all day. That afternoon he flaked out before 5pm and slept normally. He isn't sleeping through the night yet, but I can handle the 4-6hour nappy/bottle/sleep thing.
I will never mess with the nighttime routine ever again
