Sleeping Miracle

Okay, so I've been rocking Amelia to sleep forever. I don't think I've EVER let her cry it out before in her life. The last three nights (AND naps) I've given her a bottle and then laid her in her crib pretty much awake. I put her "ocean sounds aquarium" (or whatever that thing is called) on and give her a small board book that she likes to play with... the next time I go in to check on her, she's fast asleep! NO JOKING!! Even if she doesn't fall asleep for a while, (sometimes 20 min or so) she just quietly lays in her crib! I'm just amazed. I haven't heard a peep out of her for the last several nights either. I think it helps that she doesn't seem to be teething at the moment.

This is probably just a phase but I'm banking on it while I have it! I've found that it's SO hard to put her for a nap on the days I babysit because the 2 year old doesn't have a morning nap and trying to keep her out of trouble while a put Amelia down is VERY difficult. I think that's how this all originated. Amelia has been doing awesome, I'm so proud of her!

I got that musical crib thing when Amelia was 6 months old. I'll be using one on my next baby from birth!!!

I'm glad you found something to work for you and Amelia. Riley has the same crib thing and we also use it everynight for bed-it's part of our routine. She also loves it!
