i have to let her cry.. I can't do it anymore update!!! update again!!!!
My two month old, will not sleep unless I'm laying down with her, and I just can't do it anymore! My neck, back and shoulders are hurting, I havea constant headache from not being able to sleep, and I have a two year old as well that I have to be up with in the morning, that needs mommy to play with her! So tonight, I gave the baby a bath, fed her, burped her, made sure her diaper was clean and dry, danced her to sleep, then put her in her bed, about five minutes later she started crying of course, I just have to let her cry! I can't do the sleeping with me thing anymore, and she sleeps through the night now, so with no midnight feedings there really isn't a reason she needs to sleep with me. I understand that mommy is comforting, but mommy needs sleep too right? I don't know what else to do, I put her in her room, in the playpen (we're about to move so I already took the crib down) and I'm trying to let her figure out that is where sleepy time will be from now on, this is tough :(
No, I am not simply letting her CIO all alone in there by herself, if she cries for more than five minutes I go in there pick her up, love her, give her her passy and lay her back down, she is not downright screaming, she is just being fussy. And I found a tube sock, filled it with rice and warmed it up and laid it on her and she seems pretty ok with that!
IT WORKED!! the sock worked!! she is sleeping peacefully in her bed and has been for over an hour now!!!! oh my god I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders!!! I kinda wish I wouldn't have drank the coffee I had when she was fighting the sleep now..
