Sleep Troubles

Ahh the joys of sleep training....

I am attempting to teach Lulu to go to sleep on her own. This came about when I was trying to put her to sleep on Sunday night. I realized she was keeping herself awake on purpose! I felt so frustrated. I decided to leave her in the room by herself. That first night was awful. She cried some and kept getting up. Finally she went to sleep.

The next night She got up two or three times cried for maybe 60 seconds then went to sleep. I was so happy! The night after that she decided she did not want to take a bath and she put herself to bed! I thought I had died and gone to heaven!

No such luck since then. Lulu has cried, thrown fits, screamed, got up again and again and again. I keep hoping and praying that this stage will pass quickly and she will go to sleep. Please just go to sleep!

  1. Been there - know the frustration when you think "We've done it!" only to regress. Keep trying!
