I have done a lot of things that I said I would never do... For example: Letting our baby sleep in the bed with us. I thought (and still think) that it will create a bad habit that will be hard to break. BUT when I discovered that both Rosie and I were getting more sleep by having her in the bed it was a done deal.
Now that she is getting a bit older (6 weeks today) we're trying to get her use to her crib. It hasn't been too hard! The only tricky part is transferring her from our arms to her crib - she seems to always wake up! So now we've been trying to pay close attention to when she is in a deep state of sleep, and then we move her.
Last night we put her in and she slept for two hours, then Mike fed her a bottle, and then she slept for an additional two hours. I'd hope she'd sleep for a bigger chunk than two hours (3 or 4)... but I guess we will take what we can get. I've read and have been told that around 6 weeks they start to sleep for longer periods of time.. so I am [im]patiently waiting for that to begin.
Today, during the day, I tried putting her in a couple times and she would only last about twenty minutes. But hey, that gave me enough time to eat some breakfast (which was a bowl of froot loops and then some spaghetti haha)... which is pretty hard to do when I'm holding her.
Anyways... tonight, when it is time for bed, we're going to try it out again and we'll see how long she lasts!
