Wow, today with Simon has been a lot better. I'm not going to assume this will last, but at the moment he does seem to really prefer being on his tummy for both playtime and naptime, and today the one's almost always led naturally into the other, meaning that he virtually is going to sleep independently. He's slept a lot more today, too, and seems in a better mood for it. Can it be that I've actually hit on something that works? It's almost too much to hope... we'll have to see how things go tonight.
And next post I'll have something to say that isn't about the baby, I promise.
