Kylie and I have developed a bad habit. She wakes up in the middle of the night , I go into her room and rock her in the chair and eventually we both fall asleep. It’s the only time she will sit and cuddle with me so I don’t mind doing it. At Kylie’s last doc appointment the Peditrician told me that she needs to start soothing her self back to sleep. Last night was the first night of trying, she woke up around 2am. She bawled and bawled until Jonny went in and gave her a binki and Snowflake the Penguin. Soon as he left the room she began to cry so hard, It was the saddest thing ever! I started crying but I didn’t give in, I turned the baby monitor off and shut our bedroom door. Three hours later she eventually gave up and fell asleep. YES!!! VICTORY!!
I’m still feeling guilty, and I’m definitely not looking forward to tonight, but I know this is the best thing for her.
