Trained as a Geologist only to discover that there was no job opportunity waiting for me.

Instead found my way back to computing after spending my formative years plugging away on Sinclair Spectrum's and Commadore Amigas.

Hack together Database Applications for a SME construction company, with the intention that I can stop our engineers spending all their time thinking up spreadsheets of information that we already have.

We're going to try this tonight How long should we expect it to take before he falls asleep / before we give up? 1hour? 2hours?

We've tried self soothing a few times but always get caught out by him standing up once he wakes. It's obvious when we go through that he's been standing the whole time he's been crying...

To clarify we have been trying as much as possible to have him sleep in his own bed, but up until now the best night sleep for all of us has been at least some of the time with him in our bed. This is becoming less optimal as he gets larger and mum prepares for work.

His sleeping hasn't really changed. Sometimes we get 4-5 hours sometimes 2-3 between wakes. What has changed is his mum about to go back to work, thus needing better sleep; and as he has got bigger, his causing more disruption in our bed :).
