No wonder it was easy for him
The week before we became a family of 4 I made Andy start to put Tatum to bed, just to make sure she would let him and all would go smooth when we came home from the hospital! He successfully put her to bed 4 nights so I took the last before birth day! Anyway ... so now 4 weeks later and Bowden is now on bottles (which makes me both happy and SAD) and I tell Andy ... you feed the baby I want to bath Tatum and put her night night ... we do up stairs. I give her her bath, we have so much fun singing, splashing and playing! I take her into her room, dress her, give her her sippy cup and sit in the rocking chair with her ... we say our prayers and we hum a lullybuy ... then she is done with her sippy cup of milk so I get up, kiss her head and put her in the crib ... and then ... WAAA WAAA SREAM YELL CRY! I walk out ... because you see dear internet that is what I USED TO DO! Put her down still awake, and she would sooth her self night night! Well I guess he missed the let her fall asleep on her own memo ... he has been rocking her to sleep each and every night!!! OMG I wasd so so mad ... oh well he didn't know and now we are starting the cry it out phase! Wish us luck!
