She has been waking up every night around 3 am since last Saturday and has been quite a little demon for the past few days. She has been quite unwell because of her kidney infection and , as we do when she is not well, we took her into our bed. So, on top of my own kidney infection that has brought with it indescribable back pain, my ever growing bump and intermitent sciatica and Mr Foodie's snoring (I know, dear, there is nothing you can do about it), I have had to put up with a wriggling, unwell, and recently snoring toddler too. Try sleeping with a foot stuck near your head, or worse a bum lifted up in the air (how she can sleep in that position is beyond me)! We have been very lucky so far and she has always loved sleeping in her cot and slept well through the night so we shouldn't complain that, from time to time, she gives us a little challenge to deal with. And I suppose we better get used to interrupted sleep with the new baby coming soon. The only comforting thing is that I we are not alone in this (hopefully temporary) situation as Pampers let me know a while ago by sending me this press release.

There are enough reasons why your baby can wake up during the night and so Pampers understands that parents certainly don’t want their baby’s wet nappy to be one of them! For Pampers, the land of golden sleep is a place where babies sleep soundly and can stay comfortable for up to 12 hours.
To help parents get their baby to drift off into the land of golden sleep, Pampers has created four new age-related bedtime routines, called the Pampers Soothology™ routines with its sleep expert Wendy Dean. The routines aim to help ease families through their baby’s ever changing night time needs: from 0-3 months; 4-6 months; 7-12 months; and 12+ months.
Thanks to Pampers Baby-Dry you can help ensure that your baby’s much-needed sleep will not be disturbed because of a wet and bulky nappy. Following a night of golden sleep your baby will wake refreshed so you can enjoy brighter mornings together – ready to embrace the day ahead.

So I think I'll pop over and check it out, they might have a miracle cure for a toddler that was sleeping well and now isn't. After I get a nap that is.
