Attempt Number 1

January 2009: 2 months old

Today I decided to try out the crib thing with Bailey during nap time now that she seems to be feeling better from her series of immunization shots. I documented the event. Ahhh sleeping baby, so peaceful in her slumber.



Things seemed to be going remarkably well. Almost time to celebrate... but wait perhaps things are going too well.



Oh no, here it comes. The baby stirs... a long happy stretch and...



The final result each time until we became totally distrusting of Momma and refused to fall asleep for our afternoon nap.

Mission: FAILED

We will keep working on it.

    Oh man, I love the last pic :)!! Very funny! (except the part of missing the nap- hate that!)

    I have to say, I don't miss that stuff. Samantha was always really hard to get to nap (and sleep through the night). Yuk! Mama needs sleep!! There's hope though- both of our kiddos are great sleepers now!(except they wake up at the crack of dawn):)

    hehe she wasn't a happy camper that's for sure LOL

    She does pretty good at night, but she sleeps in her swing. It's going to be tricky getting her to sleep without the rocking motion.

    We will try again, take no prisoners, for real later this week as soon as I get her a little boombox for her room (she sleeps best with music) and batteries for her mattress (it does the soothing vibrations). Hopefully that will make it less upsetting for her.

    Have you tried swaddling her? I STILL have to swaddle Alex or else she jerks herself awake and screams....if she's swaddled, she sleeps VERY well!

    Yeah, she sleeps more soundly if she's swaddled. That was the first attempt, she had fallen asleep on me while we were sitting in the rocker after eating so I tried to lay her down in her crib. The next few times she was swaddled, but she's like Harry Houdini wiggling her way out of even the tightest swaddles LOL. I am not sure how she does it so fast considering she is not at a stage with strong hand eye coordination.
