So night one wasnt the worst thing in the world, but it was not good either. They went down well at 8pm. Leah had a little fussy moment but I thought she would easily go down again if i rocked her, so I did. Honestly, if I had gone to bed earlier I would be much better right now.
Hannah got up at 3:45. I changed her immediately, patted her, gave her the passy and lovey, and stepped out. She screamed. I went in after 5 minutes. She screamed more. 10 minutes. More screaming. 15 minutes. Still no rest. She did this for an hour and 20 minutes. Leah woke up at 4:30 and I did the same with her, but she did not cry as long. In fact, I think she played in her crib with her passy for a good while before falling asleep. By 5:30 all was quiet again. Hannah woke back up at 7 and I went and got her. Leah woke up at 7:15 and Matt gave her to me. So we ended up having some morning snuggle time because we all fell back to sleep until 8:45. I hope I did not negate everything from last night.
I got text messages periodically from my lovely sister telling me she was about to kill me, or go get a baby. Apparently, Hannah sounds like she is in Laura's bedroom.
We are going to do the same technique for naptime. I hope that they will both start sleeping well. Maybe tonight will be better. I definitely have a strong willed child! Listening to your child scream out for you is not the easiest thing to do.
