I'm not rewriting all the BW details from yesterday. Basically overall it was a good day. She had two solid naps and is doing less crying when I lay her down. Last night was SO great too! I went to bed at midnight and B woke up at 3:00 for her bottle with M, then at 5:30 to nurse with me. She went back down till 7:30. I got about 6 hours of sleep...which is good! ( I can't believe I consider this to be "good". The old me was not happy unless I got 8 or more hours!)
I re-read a big chunk of my BW book and realized the scheduling isn't as rigid as I thought. It's all about assessing your baby and doing what is best for them in that circumstance. So, if B wakes up a little early from a nap and I give her a chance to soothe herself back to sleep but she doesn't, then I get her up and feed her. My mom said it quite well yesterday, "Babies aren't robots!" I'm so happy to have Blair on a flexible schedule and am definitely going to put our next baby in their own bed immediately.
I got some fun things in the mail yesterday. Here they are:
