|I've had no blog to stick this one into yet so it is going to be here out of place in a blog about sleeping haha! I just had to share their similar smile as they battle over the placemat.|
|Sleeping at Grammie Auntie Gails house during dinner time.|
We weren't comfortable with "cold-turkey" crying out method so fortunately the book (What to Expect When Expecting) had an excellent suggestion called "Ferberizing". It works like this: "The first night, put your baby down awake, provide comfort and then leave the room. Don't stay with the baby long enough for them to fall asleep and do not pick them up. If the baby begins to cry, as they almost certainly will, let the baby cry for 5 minutes then go back in and reassure. Reset the clock and repeat until the baby has gone to sleep. Over a period of time extend the amount of time the baby is alone"(paraphrased from our book, they kinda drag on!)
|Rainy day nap in the stroller. Jack stayed nice and dry in the BOB all snuggled up with his teddybear fur blanket. Momma and Lucy were not as lucky... the car is just recovering now from the wet-dog stink.|
|You can't tell in this picture, but he is snoring. It was priceless.|
It has been 1.5 weeks and Jack is now falling asleep within 10 minutes on his own with little encouragement from us in-between. He's sleeping almost all the way through the night with a wakeup sometime around 6 for a feeding and up at 7:30 for the day. We are SO proud of everyone's hard work, and all three of us are more rested for it.
