Total Crib Rejection

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

baby cribs9-1/2 months passed and she still won't sleep in the crib. What ever happened to the good ole days when she would sleep for 8 hours straight in her crib? Still sleeping in our bed, I decided to try to gradually orient her back to her room. I started feeding her only in her room and then laying her down in the bed there to sleep. Dad was able to transfer her to the crib one time while she stayed asleep. Every other time, especially when I try to put her in the crib, results in screaming the "You're torturing me!" cry.

I talked to one of the teachers at our Parent/Baby class, and she suggested that I let her sleep on a mattress on the floor in her room, after baby-proofing the whole room. That would probably work, if we could find a place to put the rest of the bed, and spend the time doing the baby-proofing. She actually does sleep on that bed in her room quite nicely, but we haven't left her all night there yet. Just whenever we are alert enough to watch her through the baby monitor. Then when we head off to bed, we try the crib thing again or else bring her back to our bed.

Of course, a lot of the time, we just go the easy route and let her fall asleep in our bed!
