That’s the best way to describe how it is to sleeptrain your baby.
Like I said in my previous post I made some mistakes around night 5. That was the night I let him sleep in his own crib again. At the same time I tried to change his bedtime (bringing him to bed earlier). That was a little bit too much too soon. Stupid stupid me. Note to self: One change at a time please.
I started again with sleeping in his own crib at night 6. It involved a little bit of crying, but after some nights it went pretty well and I got 3 nights in a row of good sleep! (hurray hurray hurray) I was beyond myself, felt energised and was already making plans for all the stuff that I can do now little mister X is sleeping well.
Then he got sick and it all tumbled down again.
You know when you are playing Monopoly and you have to go back to start without collecting the $200? That’s how it felt. Please go back to start without collecting any sleep…
The only thing little mister X wanted was holding on to me like a little monkey with his red coloured feverish cheeks. So that’s what I did. I hold him, cuddled him and fed him until the fever was gone.
We are back at start now, let’s see how it goes from here. New game, new chances!
