I completely forgot to share these pictures of Milo’s crib! The post has been happily sitting in draft for ages, with all the moving drama I obviously forgot!
Anyway, this is Milo’s crib, and it’s got history! It was handmade by Dave’s grandad (the frame) and grandma (the sewn bits) for Dave and his sister. Now Dave’s mum sewed a new cover for Milo. We have it standing at the bottom of our bed.
At the moment this seems quite pointless, since he only sleeps in it during the day, when we’re not in the room, at night he outright refuses. Until last week he would start screaming the second you put him in it at night, no matter how fast asleep we was when you put him in. I don’t know how he knows it’s the night, but he does! So we’ve kept him in our bed, which I know is quite popular in the US (or seems from what I’ve read online) but the official advice is against here. It was a bit scary to start off with when he was properly tiny, but now he’s a bit more robsut I actually quite enjoy having him to cuddle and it makes it easier when he invariably wakes up to feed. Though we’re making a concerted effort now to get him to stay in the crib, and then hopefully sleep for longer than three hours at a time. In the last few days we had a bit of breakthrough and I’ve managed to get him to lie in it for about twenty minutes at bed time, speaking away to the toys, before he started crying, so there is hope!
