So the first night of the big girl bed did not go so well.
It took more than 45 minutes to get her to stay in her bed. I laid with her for awhile and finally just walked out, shutting her door. She screamed for five minutes and the husband went back in. He laid with her for 10 minutes and she was out. Go figure.
She stumbled into our room, which is right across the hall at 4 a.m. I took her back to bed and she insisted we snuggle. I climbed into bed with her and stayed there for almost an hour. She would fall asleep but sense every time I tried to get up and start crying. Finally at 5 a.m., she woke up in a fit and insisted we go back to my room.
She stayed in bed with us for about 15 minutes before the husband had enough of her switching her pacis in and out. (She must have a minimum of three pacis at night-night so she can rotate them through. I have no idea why.) So the husband took her back to bed and stayed with her until 7 a.m.
At 7:30 a.m., he hopped in the shower and here comes a sleepy Peanut again. I went back to bed with her and stayed until almost 9 a.m.
It's now 9:40 a.m. and she is still asleep, which is not really surprising since she barely napped yesterday and didn't sleep well last night.
k asked if we had child proofed her room more or had to worry about steps. No, we didn't really do anything extra to her room but yes we do need to worry about steps. Thankfully she is very good at handling the stairs and since we live in a tri-level, they aren't very tall. But, I do plan on putting a baby gate up tonight.
I'm hoping the second night goes better than the first. Any tips? Ideas?
