I'm thrilled with how well Teagan is going to sleep lately. Used to be I'd have to nurse her to sleep, and CAREFULLY take her over to the crib. If she woke up, sometimes the process would have to be repeated, or she'd protest (loudly) about being left in her crib before falling asleep.
Last few nights I nurse her while Magnus reads to us, she sits up when she's done and I talk calmly to her about going to bed while carrying her, fully awake but relaxed, over to the crib. I lay her down, hand her the dog stuffie she sleeps with, lay a blanket over her and say goodnight. Not a single peep out of her, she just goes to sleep. I am LOVING the calm, happy bedtime for everyone!
