Living life in the carpool lane..

She’s down… for now..

Posted on: October 10, 2011

For the past few days, we have not been able to put Little M down when she goes to sleep.  Every time she did, she would just squirm herself awake, and the start crying..

Lately, she’s loved being put down while she’s awake.. but she never wanted it when she slept.  That’s made it very difficult to do anything while alone at home.  That’s why I haven’t really written any posts here lately.  It’s hard to type things one-handed.

Tonight, after her bath, she ate and just knocked out.  For some reason, she kept stretching backward like she wanted to be put down… so.. I did!

And voila!

She’s been lying down on the floor on blankets ever since.  Granted, I can’t go too far away because she seems to startle easily and I have to come in close and pat her back to sleep.. but she’s still there!

I’m hoping it’s a start to getting her to start sleeping in her own space instead of sleeping on my chest every night and every nap..

My only worry is when she’s in her sleeper at night, that I’m not close enough to comfort her when she startles herself awake.  I think we are going to have to sleep on the floor in the living room for awhile so I can be close enough to comfort her back to sleep when she startles at night..

At this point, I’m just glad she was able to go down right now.  We’ll take it one sleep at a time.. hopefully she gets used to lying down again..
