29/07/2021 – Sleep shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was laughing when I came to give him a facial scrub in the bath. He seemed to suddenly have a bit too much energy for my liking. He was in bed by 22:35. I heard him at 23:45 so I went up to check on him, prompted him to the loo and then he returned to bed. I decided to put the duvet in the cover  and spread the light blanket over that in case he was not cozy enough.  But he didn’t settle and remained vocal so I went up to him again 10 minutes later. I prompted him to lie flat, put some sleep oil behind his ears, on his forehead and on chest and back. I changed the background music to nature sounds. I also prompted Fela to put the eye mask over his eyes as he tends to pull it above his eye.

Fela was quiet by 00:10. I next heard him at 6:00 so  I went up and prompted him to the loo. He then returned to bed and I covered him up snugly again. I decided to turn the fan off as it was a bit chilly. Fela did not settle again and I heard him on and off until 7:30. I went up to him and started his morning routine as it was clear that he did not want to go back to sleep. Fela had his supplements, drinks and easy peeler, I did the board with him and he was in the shower by 7:55. He was dressed and down for breakfast by 8:35.

Claire and Teresa came to pick him up and they left around 9:30. He has been vocal on and off throughout the morning so far, but was baseline on departure.

*Please note that Fela had hot chocolate for his evening snack, not Sleepwell tea.
