After three weeks of continuous crying during her nap time, Maddy has finally learned the skill of falling to sleep by herself!! Praise God!
It’s been three very tough weeks for us both physically and emotionally. There were the fatigue, headaches, and fevers that came with Maddy’s non-stopping crying for at least one hour (except the short minute when we were patting her and trying to calm her down) every nap time.
There were the uncertainty, disappointment, and anxiety of not knowing if Maddy was ever going to learn to fall asleep on her own.
At 4:30-5:45pm nap time yesterday, she gave two two-minute breaks. I know, I know, four minutes doesn’t sound like anything, but trust me, compare to the ‘no-minute-at-all’, four minutes were great.
At 11:00-12:00 midnight nap time yesterday, she stopped crying after 30 minutes and slept through the rest of the nap time!
And this morning, she ONLY cried 5 minutes before she drifted off to her sleep!!! I was in such disbelief that I had to go into her room and see if she was still ‘alive’.
Mommy and daddy are very very VERY HAPPY!!!
