Weaning: Episode 2
~initially it looked like things were improving, he fell asleep in 20 minutes
~then woke up 40 minutes later
~finally back to sleep until 2:15am (again!)
~we were up for about an hour and then he fell asleep until 4:30am
~at that point, I caved, took him to bed with me and we both zonked out for 2 awesome hours of solid sleep. I was freakin' exhausted and couldn't stay up anymore trying to comfort him in his crib.
~i'm doing this alone. husband is a big wimp and is sleeping @ my mom's house to avoid the crying. this type of behavior should be disclosed prior to marriage if you ask me. he is getting out of ALL of the difficult parts of parenting...digress...another story for another day.
~i don't think we are going to have the results everyone tells me they got after 3 days. we seem to be on a (much) slower road.
~i'm going to focus more on weaning him from nursing as opposed to getting him to fall asleep on his own. he will sleep in his crib but I am having to rub his back or head to get him to finally nod off.
~still feeling somewhat zombie-like.
