We are FINALLY getting sleep in this house! After 5 months of fighting with Rory I just gave up trying to get him to sleep in his crib all together. Every night I lay down in our bed with him, he nurses and snuggles for about a 1/2 hour and by about 8:30 he's out. I get up, go downstairs and go to bed at my usual time between 10 and 11. He hardly stirs when I go to bed. He wakes a couple times in the night to eat but doesn't fuss or cry. When I was trying to get him down in his crib we spent so much time fighting to get him down he'd get over tired and then fight all night long even in our bed -- keeping us all up.
It is all such a HUGE relief. I still don't love co sleeping but I've simply accepted that he just needs it right now. We were fighting for hours every night to get a couple hours of him sleeping in his crib. It was awful and only getting worse not better. Now every night is peaceful. Why didn't I do this sooner? Sometimes I need to just be more flexible!
How is sleep going for everyone else?
