Oh my gosh!!! Sooooo last night Evie cried and cried for about an hour straight while we were running errands (tried Ergo, car seat, and swaddling in my arms) but nothing worked. Finally she calmed down at home when I gave her some herbs to try and calm her down (half dose of kids rescue remedy, these colic tablets you put in some water for her, and some other calming kids thing) Then, I tried to rock her to sleep in my arms but she wasn't having that. I remembered your post and decided to give it a shot since she was sleepy and happy.


I laid her down with her little seahorse toy that glows and plays music, and she was completely silent the whole time. She fell asleep around 11 and just woke up at 7:15!!!!! She did wake up two times, but they were for barely 10 minutes each time!! Soooo much different from the baby I've had since birth!! Thank you so much for your suggestion!!!!


Now, I'm trying to figure out if it was from the routine, or from screaming and crying for so long.... I guess we will find out tonight! I'm definitely crossing my fingers though!! Thanks again!!!

Woo hoo!  Sounds like my Annabelle.  Other than a small handful of times where she will fuss for a little bit, she prefers to just put herself to sleep.  I'm sooo glad it worked well for you.  It's so easy to be programmed to think that all babies prefer to be rocked/nursed to sleep, that it's so strange to have one that doesn't.  Here's hoping she will keep it up for you!!
