Ok, first of all, we are still without our computer at home so I am unable to post any pictures. It really stinks because we have so many cute ones to post! As soon as we get it back I will be able to post. I have not been posting much because I am not as interesting as some of my other blogger buddies and I have no fun stories to tell . . . we get up, go to work/school, come home, eat dinner, pack our lunches for next day, feed/play with Robbie and go to bed and that is pretty much it!
Second and most importantly, I am seeking advice from my Mommy friends. I hate to admit it, but Robbie has been sleeping in the swing (in motion) for at least a month or longer. From the day we brought him home up until then he had slept just fine in the pack and play and Kevin and I were getting ready to make the transition to the crib, but then all of a sudden he kept waking up every 20 minutes to every hour during the night. I was already back to work and in desperation for sleep we turned to the swing. Shame on us that he is still sleeping in the swing, but we just can't get him out of it! We really want to make the transition to the crib, but we are not sure how to do it without sacrificing our much needed rest. Also, over the last couple of weeks he has started to wake during the night again. Usually he goes down around 8pm (trust me, there is NO WAY to move that later, we have tried) and wakes around 2am. I feed him and he will then sleep until we get up for work. Some nights he will wake at midnight and two or two and four, but for the most part it is mostly just once at two. Anyway, I am desperately seeking any advice to help us trasition to the crib. We have attempted it but he wakes up after about twenty minutes and screams (and I mean screams!) until we finally come in to get him. We tried the comfort and then leave again thing, but he has that figured out and will continue to scream until we pick him up. My step mom suggested getting a sleep positioner because he likes to be cuddled so much and seems to startle himself awake in the crib, but we are not sure if we should just get a plain one or one that vibrates . . . anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
