Thanks for reading my question.
Our daughter is 11 months old. She generally goes down really well for her 2 naps during the day. Once in a while she puts up a fight, but usually she's great. We put her in her crib when she's tired & she goes to sleep rather quickly. Maybe a little whining here and there & that's it.
At night, it's a different story. She SCREAMS when we put her in her crib, even when she's visibly tired.
We still rock her to sleep at night because that's the only way we've been able to get her to sleep. I keep going back & forth & second guessing myself, which can get rather annoying! :)
I keep thinking, so what if we rock her. It's what she needs now & I'll miss rocking her when she's older, but then the other part of me says... ummm how long should we do this for because eventually she'll need to go to sleep at night on her own.
Has anyone else out there rocked their baby for a long time?
I'm thinking she doesn't like the dark or maybe separation anxiety is at its peak and she knows she won't see us for a while. Thanks so much!
