Day 2: is this for real?

Last night was the 2nd night of ferberizing Skyler. He was so mad mad mad when I put him down to sleep. He cried for a LONG time...probably a 1/2 hour. They said the 2nd night is harder than the first because they are testing you and seeing if this is really for real. He finally fell asleep and then woke up for his late night feeding at 2:30 am (which is usually at 11:30 or 12). Then he slept until almost 7. So there was no crying except for when I put him down around 9. So that was better. Hopefully tonight he won't cry as long. I'm really proud of him and myself and I feel so much better than waking up a million times to put his binky in.

Oh the joys of motherhood. Don't worry...I think the fact that you are willing to force a better situation proves you have a heart. If you were to just give in all the time I would say that you don't really care. You are doing great. Good luck tonight. I hope it goes well.

ok - my turn! I need to do that. We stopped swaddeling him, but his binkie is still an obstical we need to overcome. I really want to sleep through the night - and I know he can do it! We will see. I'll check back to see how you are doing. Toodles!
