I don't wanna jinx myself, and hopefully it'll stay this easy, but tonight I had the last straw with Jack jumping in his crib and losing his "bippys" on the floor and crying for them a million times, so I informed him that because the bippys fell so much they were broken and they wre all gone. He cried a few times then asked for his bumblebee flashlight, and after he had that he fell asleep! That's the first time time he was born that he's fallen asleep without it. I'm hoping though that it keeps going smoothly, the night is still young lol!
Update-well I spoke too soon! He woke up around midnight crying and before I could get in there he found a paci under his blanket, I didn't have the heart to rip it out of his mouth so I told him that was the last one and when that one breaks there's no more. I am glad that he did fall asleep without it though!
