I’ll keep this post short ’cause I’m making a beeline to bed. I mentioned yesterday baby girl didn’t want to sleep at either one of her bedtimes. We suffered much for it last night. After two wonderful nights of her sleeping through the night, she slept a total of 3-4 hours and then proceeded to cry every hour on the hour from 1am on. Suffice to say, we’re both tired.
Today, I decided to change her nap time cold turkey to one nap. (With how much she is sleeping at night and her resistance to the other naps, I thought we might be making the 2 to 1 transition at the same time all this was going on.) So, I picked her up from the neighbors 1 hour early, fed her lunch, played a little, then off to bed. She cried for a whole hour and a half.
I wasn’t going to have another repeat of last night with an overtired baby not sleeping well, so I went upstairs and rocked her to help her go to sleep. Took me 30 minutes, but she was down for a nap at 3pm and would have slept longer than 5pm had I not gone in to wake her up.
I’m grateful she had that nap. I know tonight we will all sleep well…
