Cry It Out
I think that's what I had to do because after I had my breakdown on Tuesday things have gotten progressively better. Lillian started sleeping at night, which means I have been sleeping at night, which means I'm a much happier person. I honestly don't know what happened but something seemed to click with her and she's been sleeping really well. I started putting her to bed at 6:30pm, which I know sounds really early, but in baby-land it's not. At this age Brandt was regularly going down between 6:45-7pm. And I can tell she wants depserately to go to bed, because by 6:10 she's on the verge of completely losing it. So I give her a quick bath, smear on a ton of Triple Paste, swaddle her up and put her to bed. Just keep your fingers crossed that this trend continues. At this point I don't really care that she's only taking 20-45 minute catnaps 4-5 times a day, as long as the night time sleep continues.
