Crying Update

I posted before that we are letting the peanut cry himself to sleep. Its been two weeks now, and he is still crying, and crying and crying.

When we went to the doctor on Friday I talked to her about it. She told us to keep doing what we are doing, and at some point he will learn to sleep. I secretly hoped that she would have some magic trick that would get him to sleep, but that was not the case.

This is what he does, we put him to bed drowsy, he is quite for about 10 min, then he starts to cry. Then the cries for 10 min, sleeps for 10 min, cries for 10 min, sleeps for 10 min, and so on. It could drive a person batty I tell you.

I keep telling myself that this is just a season that will not last forever, and that makes me feel better. I also know that the good Lord will equip me for everything that comes my way. :-)

I may have missed if you said this earlier, but are you swaddling him? We found that was the trick with Charlotte. Those "SwaddleMe" brand swaddles worked perfectly, and I think she really liked being in them. We actually used them until she was over four months old, and then she transitioned fairly easily to a sleep sack.
