So it started last night. I fed her at 8:30, put her to bed about 9:30. At 12:30 she was awake and crying. Now she usually goes 5-6 hours at night, so I got up and put her paci in, because she usually falls back asleep when I do that. But last night was different...she wouldn't go back to sleep. So I decided it was as good a time as any to start her training. :)
I switched the noise maker into our room, turned it on really loud, and then retreated to the guest room with my cell phone and pile of pillows.
And there I laid, listening to my daughter scream for an hour and a half.
I did go in every 10-15 minutes to put in her paci and move her back to the correct position in her bed.
At first I said I was going to make her go 7 hours (which she's done on her own on several occasions), which would put us at 3:30am. But by 1:45, my resolve was weakening, and I was just hoping to make it 2:30.
She FINALLY fell asleep about 2, slept till 5:15, I fed her, put her back to bed, she grunted around and fussed in her bed till 6:15, slept until 8:15, grunted and fussed until 9:15, at which time we got up.
Now she's asleep for her nap, and I think I'm going to join her.
I sure hope she's a fast learner!
