What do you do for naptime?
What about bed time?
Chloe was doing fantastic at nap and bedtime but dh was out of work for his surgery and she totally got out of routine. Our old routine is out of the window. She is a horror come bed/nap time for at least the past week or so.
Today for her nap, I changed her, read her a book, sat her in her crib with her doll and walked out. She got up and started jumping (this is what she does when she is mad and doesn't wanna be in there) So I just stood next to her crib and never talked to her again.. just gently layed her back down and covered her up when she got up to jump.. well, that didn't work because she knew I was still there so she just stayed awake.. so I walked into the hallway and kept her door open just enough where I could see her but she couldn't see me. Then when she got up.. I went back in and layed her down and went back into the hall! It worked! She is peacefully sleeping(knock on wood). I am gonna talk with dh about this and see if maybe we can try it for bedtime. I can not stand the crying and it really does not help. She wont do the whole cry it out thing.. she just gets more pissed. Last night she started gagging herself... so I just went and got her and brought her to our bed..
