It was a big month. We also transitioned her into the(lowered) pack and play and a few weeks later into her crib.She's learning how to sleep without mommy right next to her. Her crib is now in our room and right next to our bed where I can reach through the rungs and offer comfort. Those first 3 nights were pretty rough for her and I. The first two weeks were hard for me to sleep. I got so used to having her right next to me that I laid awake many of those nights just watching her sleep. I wanted her in bed with me- but that would have been selfish. I had to put her need to roll around in weird positions and get more rest above my it-feels- like-it's-safer-and-I-don't-want-to-"sleep-train"- philosophy. She doesn't wake as often in her crib. Poor hubby was suffering due to all the baby stirring as she grew as well. The only one getting any sleep was me. She still wakes up two times during the night and often times I slip her into bed with us at the 4:30-5:00 feeding. Good compromise right? All is well now- at night that is. Little stinker is still such a fighter of naps. She'll rub and rub her eyes, lay her head on the floor or snuggle up to me but the second her eyes get heavy she starts kicking and flailing to keep awake. She'll spend hours doing- what I call-the no sleep dance.
