Nap time?!

I was chatting with a friend yesterday and we got on the topic of how do I put Lilly to sleep.

Lilly definitely goes through phases! She's not the perfect baby in the regards of books and standards (but I think she is ;).

Everyone always asks 'Oh is she sleeping through the night," Most people are kind when I reply 'no.' But everyone and then, I can see the judgement behinds their eyes.

Well Lilly has 8 teeth and has been teething since 3 1/2 months. That might be why she isn't sleeping through the night.

Or that I'm spoiling her by not 'waiting' or letting her cry it out.

I digress.

Here are the 5 ways I put Lilly to sleep.
1. Nurse
2. Go for a walk/run
3. Go for a drive
4. Rock her in her Rockid
5. Hold her in my arms and jog in place.

Occasionally she has fallen asleep while I have massaged her or while on the sling.

Thoughts on sleeping? Did you have a silly way of putting your little one to sleep!

  3. Hi there! New follower, loving your blog, looking forward to exploring!

    I tried crying it out with my first daughter at 4 months and then 6 months..I didn't have the heart to do it, it was so sad! By about 9 months I was finally ready to let her cry. Then after a few days, I was able to just put her down awake and it was great.
    So I guess my point is, if you do ever try that method, its when you are ready, not the baby. judgment here, do what works best for you! xoxo
