Til recently, Colin took his day naps in his swing in the livingroom. Then he stopped sleeping through the regular noise of two playful kids. So I moved the swing to his bedroom. Today the batteries died. Great timing because the crib is the goal. He doesn't sleep as soundly or as long in there but I've been putting him in the crib as much as I can.... in the day... when we're home.
At night, Colin sleeps with me. He sleeps very well, only waking up for a couple feedings as long as he's next to me. I don't mind because I get my sleep and have been quite functional caring for 3 kids in the day. But the crib is the goal.
I tried to mimic myself next to him by covering a nursing pillow with a tang top that I wore all day. I am sooo sneaky! And it worked. But I don't like his face that close to pillows. Makes me nervous. I only did this a couple times to get him used to the crib environment.
Tonight I put my little man in his crib awake because I had to put V&L to bed. He cried and cried but he finally fell asleep.. alone... without me. He didn't sleep long but I'll take what I can get! Baby steps as we work towards all sleep time in the crib. Because the crib is the goal.
