Spring has sprung!
Thank you so much to everyone who responded to my post about baby wise and getting keating to sleep. I read back over my post and it sounded a little selfish so I wanted to clarify.
I dont mind getting up with K at night. I knew becoming a mother would result in a loss of sleep and I am okay with that. But he does need to know how to soothe himself to sleep on his own when he wakes up at night. It got to the point that every time he cried he would only be comforted by nursing. I couldnt just sit around all day and night with my boobs hanging out for him to latch on! :)
Yesterday we started our 3 hour eat schedule at 7 am and I think it went really well. His first nap in his crib he cried but I went in every 3-5 min to let him know that I was there. I picked him up to help him calm down and then put him back in his bed. After the 3rd time, he fell asleep on his own. For two other naps he went down easily on his own.
Last night I let him sleep in his swing in our room again. I wanted to ease the transition to his crib. He slept pretty well. Fell asleep at 8 and I woke up up at 10 to eat, then he didnt wake again until 3:30 to eat again. Hungry boy! He woke up one other time and I shushed him back to sleep. It was much better than him screaming and only sleeping in bed with me.
Today we are back on it and hopefully sleeping in the crib tonight! We will see how it goes!
Here are a few photos for an Easter recap!
