Our new pediatrician sort of put a guilt trip on me for being a softy and getting up with Willa whenever she would cry. So I decided to man up and start her on a sleep training program.
It broke my heart the first night to hear her cry. She cried for 2 hours straight even though I went in every 3, then 5, then 10 minutes to pat her back and comfort her. But now, 6 nights later she is doing FABULOUS! She has slept over 10 hours the last 3 nights without making a peep. And she falls asleep by herself in her crib within 10 minutes in the evening and at naptime. It is so nice to be getting some good sleep. And I must admit it has been a little liberating to let her cry.
