My child is sleeping IN A CRIB.
I realize I might be jinxing myself, as he’s only been asleep for, umm, seven minutes or so, but that’s already seven more minutes than he’s ever slept in that crib.
I’m still planning on sleeping in his room for a few nights as he gets used to his new bed, etc.
I can’t remember where I read it, because I read like a gajillion articles and books about gentle co-sleeping transitions, but someone said not to do anything for more than three days.
Like, sleep in there on the mattress for three days. Then three days in the crib with me on the floor. Then three days of him in the crib, and me in the chair in the corner or something. They said anything routine you do for more then three days, toddlers think that’s the way it’s supposed to be.
I have no idea if that’s true. But I got tired of reading sleep-training articles, and decided that sounds plausible.
So, fingers crossed night #1 is successful (update: we’re up to 14 minutes!) and I’m back in my bed by Friday.
