We have put Gracie's bed back into a crib. For those of you who don't know, I was still rocking Gracie to sleep (Our babies are only going to want to cuddle for a short time, before they think they don't need us.) and would of continued to do so if she would cooperate, but she doesn't. So, last night I put the front rail back on her bed and put her to bed. She cried and threw a pretty good fit. After 10 minutes I went in and calmed her down for a few minutes and then said to lay down like a big girl and try to go to sleep. This time she cried, but only for a couple of minutes then would be quiet for a few minutes and she did this about 10 more minutes. After she was quiet for a couple of minutes, I went in and held her hand. She was asleep after just a minute. I plan on sticking with this plan and when she goes to sleep without the fit, I will switch her bed back.
