A bed of her own

On Friday night, we started to help Baby B make the transition from the swing, where she has slept ever since the first night home, to her crib. With her sleeping through the night for nearly three weeks, I figured it was a good time to make that transition, especially with her move to daycare looming next month.

So far I'd call the transition a success; or, at least, we're getting there. Pretty much every night has gone the same: We've put her in the crib for the night around midnight (we're working on getting that to be earlier, as well) and she's not made a peep until the morning. On Friday night, she woke up for the first time at 5 a.m. but went back to sleep for an hour before she indicated she wanted to eat. I had her up feeding her from 6:30 until 7:30 a.m. and then she slept until 9:30 a.m. The second night, we had to move her to her swing around 6 a.m. because she wouldn't go back to sleep easily in the crib. The third night (last night), she woke up around 6 a.m. but never got back to sleep fully before I had to get up at 7:30 a.m. (the freezer is being delivered this morning between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.!!) Still, an average of 5+ hours of uninterrupted sleep in the crib is pretty good, I think, at least for the first three days, and it seems that we're on our way to no more overnight stays in the swing (good thing, because that wears the batteries down so quickly--though totally worth it for her to sleep so well in it).

Sounds like the transition is going well! Good luck for continues sleepful nights!
