Cesalie, Please Go To Your Room!
Karlie was in her own crib, in her own room by 5 months old. With Rylie, it was 4 months. Cesalie is a little bit over 8 months old and she is still sleeping in a pack n play next to our bed. She has a nice crib waiting for her in her room, which she shares with Rylie, but she wants nothing to do with it. We put her in it and she cries and cries. It's so heart breaking. Well, on Friday night and Saturday night, we made the decision that she just needed to cry it out. She cried it out both nights, and finally fell asleep, but both mornings she was up at the crack of dawn crying again. Also, all this crying is disturbing Rylie's sleep, and Rylie needs her sleep. Believe me! So, tonight we gave in to Cesalie's demands and put her back in the pack n play next to our bed. I'm at a loss, I just don't know what to do. We even tried putting the pack n play in her room, but she just screamed. She does not like her room. And, also she is not napping well either. She will take a morning nap, but not an afternoon one. I feel like all she does is cry lately. She doesn't have any teeth yet, so I guess she could be teething, but I don't see anything coming in. My other girls were pretty laid back as babies. But not Cesalie, nope. Anyway, I am open to suggestions if anyone has any advice.
On another note, Cesalie is so very cute. She is really babbling away and on the go!
She is starting to eat solids a little bit better, she is finally showing some interest. We have also been giving her some Gerber puffs. At first she would gag and make a face, but now she is doing better and I think she likes them.
