First:Back to the purpose of this post- three days in a row, I laid Jacob in his crib while he was still awake. And three days in a row he drifted peacefully off to sleep without crying!!! OMG, maybe it's not just a fluke. Maybe the gods of child rearing are throwing me a bone! Nothing is ever easy with Jacob so maybe I'm getting a free pass on this one (knock on wood).
If you would have told me this was possible last month, I would have laughed in disbelief. He would scream for an hour wen I put him down and then I would give up and just rock him to sleep. Even after I rocked him to sleep and then put him in his bed, he would wake up again after 5 minutes and just scream bloody murder because, heaven forbid, he was alone.
Also he is starting to sleep for 6 hours straight. He usually goes to bed at 9pm and wakes up at 3am to eat. After that he's awake every 2-3 hours though.... we will work on that next.
