Back when E was little (2-1/2 whole months ago!), she wouldn’t sleep in her own room or even in a bassinette in our room. She quite simply had to be held. It was worrisome (I didn’t want to crush her or suffocate her overnight), and I didn’t sleep very soundly, but nothing else worked.
Three weeks ago, I tried to get her to sleep in her crib because I was going to be returning to work and would need to sleep more soundly. Lo and behold - she slept through the night in her crib! She’s doing great – sleeping on her own every night. ALL. NIGHT. LONG. Hallelujah!
But OH, how I miss her!! I want her back in bed with us! E – how could you do this to me? It wasn’t supposed to work so well so fast! I was supposed to be able to say I’d tried! You were supposed to need me! *sigh* You’re growing up so fast.
Stupid independence. I want my needy baby back.
