Sleep Training Day 3 & 4

This is a continuation of a previous post. If you want to know how our first two days of sleep training went please read that first. 

Tuesday, 1st April

8:00 Kai woke up. I changed his nappy, fed him milk and solids then had play time. 
9:15 We read a book and put him in his cot for his morning nap. I turned mobiliser on, offered him his dummy then walked out of the room. He whimpers, rolls around the cot and observes his surroundings. I go back several times to hand comfort him. 
10:10 He is finally asleep. 
10:40 He is woken up by Eli. Tried to put him back to sleep but he seems to be more alert so we had play time instead. 
11:10 Breast fed him and started routine again. Read a book and into the cot with the mobiliser on. He's crying but only mildly. I go back in every couple of minutes to hand comfort him. 
12:20 Got to waiting 5 minutes before comforting him before he finally fell asleep. 
12:40 Got woken up by a loud sound. Tried to return him back to sleep and start the process of comfort settling him again. 
13:30 Got to 7 minutes of waiting and he was still not asleep so decided to give it a break. I changed his nappy, removed a layer of clothing and fed him. I noticed he looked sleepy so I moved him into the cot and began timed comfort settling.  
14:05 It got to 5 minutes of waiting before he finally fell asleep. I did pick him up once cause he was really upset and he looked so exhausted and I wanted to give him a big hug and kiss.
15:30 He woke up. Fed him milk, had some play time and fed him some food.
17:17 Commenced night time routine. Bath, read a book, good night cuddles and into the cot.
18:15 Still not asleep and has been crying since I put him in the cot. Decided to stop and breastfed him since he's due anyways. 
18:40 Returned him into the cot, mobiliser on and commenced timed comfort settling.
19:30 He's finally asleep. He seemed more upset today crying constantly. 
20:30 He woke up but I waited 2 minutes before turning on the mobiliser on and gentle hand settling. 
20:40 He's fallen back asleep. 

Today he got just under 15 hours of sleep.

00:00 He woke up so I fed him then returned him back into the cot. He fell asleep straight away.

7:40 Woke Kai up as I was putting him into the car. I had to drop Eli off to childcare and Kai was going to be looked after by the in laws.
