Day 1 of no rocking...SUCCESS!!
I have been pondering the thought for some time now, but tonight I made the decision to put Kinsley is her crib to fall asleep. Rocking has worked great for us up until the last couple of months. She has really started fighting sleeping, fighting me and just having a fit when it came time to rock to sleep. I would fight her her sometimes an hour before she finally gave it up. Tonight was no different! I told myself tonight, "this is just ridicuolos sitting here fighting my 17 month old for an hour". So I went and put her in the crib. Tonight I stood right by her crib, singing to her and rubbing her back and face, and laying her back down when she got up. Of course, she cried, but not as long as I expected. It took about 20 mins. and she was out. Hopefully tomorrow will be shorter, and adentually I will be able to just lay her down and go out of the room. No turning back now:)
