Jenny you inspire me! The past two nights I have been working with DD using your methods and last night was way better than night #1, she slept for a 4 hr stint, it was glorious. I am going to continue with laying her down and not picking her up, just laying her down over and over until she goes to sleep. It hasn't taken more than 10 min for her to go to sleep. I have decided to only nurse her every 4 hrs, not every 1.5-2hrs like normal, and she did really good with it last night. I look forward to improving our relationship with newfound energy, because truthfully I was starting to resent her for "stealing" all of my sleep and reserves. Our sleeping situation wasn't healthy for us, she needs to be able to sleep just like I do, we will both be happier to change our habbits. Anyway I anticipate tonight will be a bit easier, etc, etc...
Jessica that is so great, sounds like a good move for your fam.
Jilian, I wouldn't worry at all, you have A LOT of time before you need to worry. Enjoy his baby hood. I am personally really sad that DD is advancing so fast. I had my own plans for her, I wasn't going to let her walk until she was 14 months
: Seems she has a mind of her own, go figure
