Waahhh Waahhh Waahhh
I'm trying it girls. Right now at this very moment I am trying to let Caleb self soothe himself to sleep. In fact we have been trying for the last 45 minutes. I have checked on him and calmed him down 3 times now, I have white noise in the background, and he is swaddled. I am sitting in the living room with the monitor watching the lights go up and down as my little man crys. Right when I think he has finally dosed off the lights will spike to the top once more. This is hard hard hard!!! I am trying to not give in and go pick him up but it breaks my heart to hear my little boy cry!!! How many nights does it normally take babies to get used to self soothing themselves? I am trying to begin a regular bedtime routine. Bath, lotion massage, put on pj's, read a book, eat, go to sleep. Your comments from my post last night really helped so if any of you have any words of encouragement/any tips to make self soothing easier I would greatly appreciate it!
