When Isabelle first came home we wanted to instill those good sleeping habits right up front. Such good intentions! After several nights of jumping up at every grunt, we succombed to the need for 45 minutes of consecutive sleep and put her in bed with us....ROOKIE MISTAKE! At present, she won't have anything to do with her cradle.
Add to this colossial blunder the fact that she is the first grandchild and so far hasn't spent much time out of someone's arms. Everytime I tell my husband, please just let her cry there for a few minutes he'll say, "but she's so small..." Oh compassionate heart! :) So, Conrad goes back to work next week and I am planning on implementing Project Sleeping Beauty. I am skipping the cradle and we are moving directly up to the crib, baby monitors and all.
Do any of you vet's have advice for me? I'm reading Baby Wise as fast as I can, in between feedings and pumping and washing baby clothes and bottles....well, you get the picture.
