No more nappies
With a slightly odd feeling, I just unsubscribed from BabyOnline's email list for specials. With not much fanfare, Nadia has toilet-trained - night and day. Thereby adding weight to the old saying that girls are easier than boys. Alex still gets woken up for a late evening pee stop and is still known to have an accident every once in a while.
In fact, there wasn't much training involved. She's preferred to use the toilet for more than a year now, and on her own she has simply stopped peeing while asleep.Fantastic - I am super pleased! But after almost 6 years of nappy changing it is funny to be done with it all. Now I just need to think who needs a few nappies and pull-up pants.
Warning - the dangers of co-sleeping!
I've been a fan of co-sleeping since before Alex was born - most health professionals exaggerate the dangers, ignore the benefits, and prefer blanket bans (pun intended) instead of sensible safe co-sleeping advice. Nadia still sleeps with me and I love the time I have with her.
But it's time for the truth...co-sleeping does have its dangers.I have a very sore and bleeding hole in my lip from a head-on collision in the dead of night. I never even saw her coming, officer.
She's so cute, she's bound to get off with just a warning.
