Restful Nights

Hey there. This weekend, we slept well. Pretty damn well. Our little one (turning 3 July 4th) has been sleeping in our bed since forever and she moves, kicks, and turns all night long, leaving us restless and tired as hell in the morning. My wife receives these Emails from Baby Center. She signed up for the newsletter a few years back when we were pregnant. She used to send those Emails to me on a weekly basis, to read up on tips and what not to help care with the baby. Well, she sent one a few weeks back and said, it's been awhile since I sent this to you. After we looked it over, there was a tip on how to get your little one to sleep in their own bed. Our eyes lit up. lol We went ahead and decided to go for it. BC (Baby Center) said that you should move in her bed to your room and let her sleep in the room until she gets used to the idea of sleeping in her bed. I moved her in right away. lol I carried her bed, all toys and dolls incuded, and plopped it right beside our bed. She had very few hisitations and was proud that she was being a "big girl". This weekend, I moved her bed back to her room and, Lo and Behold!!!! She sleeps in her bed! Leaving us feeling pretty damn good about ourselves, not to mention well rested. lol

For you parents out there that can't get your little one to sleep in their own bed, give this a shot. You have nothing to lose. lol

Keep on sleeping and keep on dreaming. Later!
