After weeks, nay months, of fractured sleep and non restful evenings I decided to start sleep training the baby yesterday. See, she will nurse to sleep in the evenings, but the second I put her down she will cry so I was spending hours every evening with her in bed instead of spending a few precious hours with my husband. I was getting cranky and running out of books to read. And she was sleeping very poorly, waking up 5 times in a night sometimes.
She cried for an hour last night, and then fell asleep. Woke up a few times to nurse and slept 12 hours.
Tonight I laid her down and she protested for maybe 5 minutes and fell asleep. Ah, peace. I hope she enjoys the rest as much as I do.
