My girls are good sleepers. Hannah is a bit of an early bird, but (luckily) she is now old enough to get herself up. They go to bed without any complaint, and will lie there relatively happily if they don’t feel like sleeping.
It wasn’t always this way. Hannah was a shocker up till about 1 year of age, waking hourly and needing resettling. Luckily she got her act together, and by 18 months of age we could count on a full night sleep on most nights.

Meg was a dream baby. She pretty much fed and slept on cue. She was sleeping 10pm till 6am from about 3 months. When she was 4 months she needed to wear a hip brace at night (she had clicky hips), and she began night waking again. Not surprising when you saw the position her legs were in. Generally though she just needed help in adjusting her body, then she was ok. Once she got out of the brace, she went back to sleeping through. As a toddler I could lie her in my arms and tell her to go to sleep and she would. I know… freakily good.
After such a good run with Meg, I was easily convinced to have number 3.
Toby isn’t terrible I guess, but after Meg, he is not really up to scratch! After our move he has become really quite difficult to settle at night. He then will wake several times during the night and need help to resettle. We have been putting off letting him just cry because we don’t have the mental energy for it. Hannah sorted herself out with time, and I guess we are hoping that Toby will too. I am lucky that Country Boy gets up to him a lot (particularly when I am working), but it affects us both.
By the time he is a teenager, hopefully he will have out grown it!
