Oh, and tonight was the first night in the "teaching the baby to put herself to sleep" project. Basically, it went something like this:

1. Baby put in crib and parents leave room.
2. Baby cries.
3. Parents think about what rotten parents they are for leaving baby to cry.
4. After five minutes, check on baby.
5. Leave baby alone again, baby starts crying.
6. Parents feels rotten and want to die.
7. After ten minutes, check on baby.
8. Leave baby alone again, baby starts crying.
9. Parents want to shoot selves, and give baby up to loving godparent.
10. Before fifteen minute mark is up, baby cries herself to sleep.

Tomorrow night, the process shall be repeated. This promises to be a horrible experience all the way around.

Eh we did this with Noa, it was a horrible experience, although it did work. This time round I'm co-sleeping, i just can't face doing that all over again.

good luck

(oh and the slave and I had a trick - we'd turn our music up in the lounge really loud for 3 songs, then we'd turn it down, by which time the sprog would be asleep, If she wasn't then we'd have to work out what was the problem. We used to call it the three song rule)

Think On It

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want yourself to be happy, practice compassion.
