this is another one of those posts
where i need your help.
everyone was so great with my flat head concern
and brette's issues with the carseat.
(which ps- she is back to LOVING)
i have a new problem.
i battle brette everyday to get her down.
i've wrapped her.
i've walked her.
i've rocked her.
i've driven her.
i've nursed her.
but getting her to sleep isn't the problem.
all of these methods got her to sleep.
is laying her down.
once she's asleep, i cannot lay her in her crib.
she wakes up within 20 minutes.
sometimes she wakes up instantly.
i've read some articles on this and they say that i'm not waiting long enough.
i guess most babies take around 20 minutes to get into a deep sleep
and if you try to put her down before then, she will wake up.
so i tried a bunch of different lengths of times
i've held her anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour.
and it didn't make any difference.
if i hold her the whole time she will sleep for two hours.
but i'm not even being greedy.
if i could just get her to sleep for ONE hour,
after laying her down,
i would be happy.
i was thinking i could lay something in the crib
next to her so she would think she was still on me,
but i didn't know if she was still too little to have anything in the crib with her?
the weird thing is,
we have NO issues at night.
she goes right off to sleep in her crib.
so maybe it's too light in her room?
i really don't know.
and she's going on three months.
waaaay to young to not have an afternoon nap.
ps- our little missy turned 12 weeks today.
i did a little photo comparison shot this morning.
same outfit, same lounger.
