My husband is able to explain to Luna Pie (19 months old) that it is bed time and put her in her crib and walk out of the room, she then somehow miraculously falls asleep. Me, not so much.
The last couple of nights I’ve been trying something different. Luna Pie shares a room with her sister, but goes to bed earlier. We do our usual bedtime routine, I lay with her for a few minutes and let her nurse, then I put her in her crib and tell her that I’m not leaving, but that she has to fall asleep. She says, “Okay” and I sit on her sister’s bed with my netbook and blog until she falls asleep. I’ve heard of the “cry it out” and the “no-cry” sleep-training methods, but I do believe I’ve just invented the blog sleep-training method.
I might be getting a little over-confident as this is only the second night and at the moment she doesn’t seem to be be comforted by the glow of the computer on my face or lulled by the sound of my keyboard. Fear not, these things take time.
How do you fall asleep? Do you count laptops or iSheep?
Gotta go, Luna Pie just told me in her sweet baby voice that she wants me to get off the computer. So much for blog sleep training. I tried people, I tried.
And now your Friday Fortune Cookie
(don’t forget to add “in bed” at the end, if you are so inclined):
Create your own miracles.
