Oh, bedtime. The most dreaded part of my day. When you have a child that pretty much refuses to sleep in his crib or only falls asleep while being cuddled, bedtime can turn into a 2 - 3 hour ordeal. IF we manage to get him in his crib successfully, he’s usually up 3 or 4 times a night and usually…
I have to discuss this with my husband.
I would really like to try this with Avery. My friend does it with her daughter and got great results. Obviously, not every kid is the same, but I do want to try it. She had a crib mattress on the side of their bed and another one in her room for naps. You can also make a border from a fun noodle under the sheet so they don’t roll off.
we have a montessori floor bed for Auggie and it’s rad. when he wakes up in the middle of the night, i just go in, lay down beside him and nurse him back to sleep.
there’s no need to transition him back into a crib, fearing he might wake up in the process, because he’s already there. and i can half sleep while he nurses, which makes me a much happier mama in the morning.
on occasion, he won’t want to go back to sleep and then i just scoop him up and take him back into bed with us, but it’s becoming less of a regular thing as he’s waking less through the night (yaaaaaaaay! and waaaaaah!).24

auggie is super into sucking his thumb now.11
Yesterday, she walked in as I was changing Ro’s diaper. She said he looked a bit red and asked to check it, and when she did she pulled back the foreskin. Now we’ve been pulling it back a bit at each diaper change, but after we got home later we noticed a bit of blood, a lot of irritation and seen…
you are not supposed to pull back the foreskin at all (it WILL separate on its own) and your pediatrician, of all people, should know that.
get a new one, asap. on top of everything else, it sounds like she doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing.1
auggie slept from 9pm to 7am last night.
and he only woke up once.
at 4:30 - 3 hours later than he usually does.
and i think that was only because i woke up to go to the bathroom, got nervous that he hadn’t woken up yet, went in to check on him and woke him out of half sleep.
YOU GUYS! I FORGOT WHAT FEELING RESTED FEELS LIKE!*
*disclaimer: i completely understand that this will never happen ever again because i’ve told someone about how awesome it was, but that’s okay. i needed someone to know.12
