Learning to cry it out June 7, 2005

Filed under: Family — Shannon @ 10:15 am

We have reached that point where Rachel is learning how to comfort herself. She is nearly 2 months old and the easy-going personality is still there however, now instead of napping on her terms, they are on mine.
We have done this for the last two kids but this time it is harder. I think it is because I know I am not doing this baby thing again. It just sucks to hear her cry. Though, I know she needs to learn to fall asleep on her own – it is agony to hear her cry. I mean, it has been hours – no, I guess, just 15 minutes.
If we never learn how to comfort ourselves then we can never be comfortable when left alone. Now I know several people like that and to each his own. I know when I get some alone time that it refreshes me and I am ready to take on the world again (or just the laundry).
