I have so much to blog about, but this takes precedence.
I have to get Lola to learn to sleep in her crib, not our bed and not to require an hour long (at least!) rocking session.
I am just not strong enough to let her cry herself to sleep in her crib and I am not convinced she would even fall asleep.
We have her in the crib now and she is bawling and screaming. The crib is in our bedroom since she’s used to sleeping in our room.
WHAT DO I DO?
Jennifer, my hair dresser, said to let her cry for 15 minutes and then pick her up and love on her and tell her “night, night” then put her back in her crib and repeat until she falls asleep. She said this would last a week or so then she would be weaned from our bed and rocking. I am attempting this and it seems like a nightmare. Clay and I both can not take it. Her cries and screams are so intense.
Has anyone had this problem and how did they resolve it?
And let me add- I don’t want to hear opinions about co-sleeping- OBVIOUSLY this is a con to it. But there were pros… I think. LOL. :)
PLEASE HELP! Going on ten minutes, giving her a few more. Don’t see this working tonight.
(I’ll blog soon about Lola at 8 months and Christmas!!!)
