Nobody, and I mean, NOBODY believes us when we say that our daughter is "high needs" and CAN NOT sleep on her own. Whenever we say that, friends and family alike just give us weird looks like, "Yea right" or "Of course, you guys are first time parents."
And then when they get her asleep and try putting her down, she either immediately wakes up, or screams a few minutes later. And so we look at them like, "Told ya so."
It's a CAN NOT. She WILL sleep on her own on certain occasions, like in the carseat, but it takes her a bit.
And we have tried everything, but no one believes us. The first 3 weeks of her life we did everything we could to keep her out of our bed. We had very sleepless nights, from trying so hard.
I'd rather hold her and she get a 3 hour nap instead of putting her down and her getting a 5-20 minute nap. See what I mean??
