The little lady was niggly yesterday evening, even after feeding, so Hayley decided to give her a bath with Oliver. He held her in the bath which was very cute. (Pictures to follow once I've edited to preserve their dignity!)

After her bath she settled briefly and then got niggly again. To let us have our dinner in peace, we gave her a dummy which she took quite happily. It's the first time we have done this.

After dinner she fed again and we were all in bed by 10.30pm. Despite stirring now and then from 3am onwards, she actually slept through until about 7.30am! (Of course we lay there expecting her to wake every time she stirred so we are still shattered today.)

So here's the question: was that the start of her having a "core night"? It normally kicks in around a month or later, but perhaps this is it. It is certainly a big step up from the amount she usually sleeps at night. She did feed a lot yesterday but if it is the start, then perhaps an end to sleep deprivation is within sight. Fingers very much crossed!
