Well for the first time at 3.30 a.m. this morning I let Ben cry. I went in to check he was O.K. put him back on his back and shusshhhed him. Then went out with the background of screaming.
I gave him 10 minutes then went back in again and repeated the shusshing. Then left again…not sure how long it took to settle as I tried not to keep looking at the clock! But he did stop crying, and he had a few shouts until he woke up at 6.30 a.m.
So we will see tonight if it has made any difference!
