Well, we've been going down in our crib (rahter than the pack and play in our room) for over a month. We were doing pretty good, staying in our crib until 2-3AM. Then fussiness would set in and I would take her to our bed for the two hours left. Mommy gets up at 5AM for work. The past couple of weeks she's been going down for about a 1/2 hour then she screams and cries and even shakes her whole body. The moment I pick her up she calms down. She sleeps like a baby (no pun) in our bed of course.
Should I feel "guilty" about this?
Am I spoiling her?
Am I creating a dependent child?
Soon I will have to go out of town for 2 full weeks for training for a new promotion. After that, I will be able to work from home for the next 2-5 years! (how great is that???) My plan to is to get past this transition and then allow her to "cry it out" when she's used to seeing me all day everyday.
Thoughts out there????
So far and my hubby and I are fine with her sleeping with us, but we don't want a 3 year old in our bed. Tips, experiences, thoughts, advice,,,,,fire away!!!
