Well, hopefully I won't have to write about this much longer, because the second day went SO much better than the first!!! I was actually prepared for it to be worse before it got better, but it really was much better. I do have to mention that the goal for us right now is a nap for at least an hour for her daytime "designated" nap times.
The night before, I put her down to sleep at 8:50. I was hoping that she would sleep through the night again, and she almost did, but not quite!
3:10am - woke up and fussed. I let her fuss for 5 minutes before I went in, just to make sure she really was awake.
3:15am-3:40am - Fed. Put her back in bed where she fussed for a minute but then fell right asleep.
7:20am - woke up happy!!!
7:30am - Fed
9:00am - Put in crib. She fussed for a minute, but then fell asleep!!!
10:10am - woke up - she actually slept for an hour! Even though the "designated" nap time wasn't over, I took her out of the crib since she slept for an hour.
10:30am - Fed
12:00pm - put in crib. No fussing! She fell right asleep!
12:40pm - woke up crying. Only a 40 minute nap, so I left her there to cry
1:00pm - I got a bit lax here, because she was supposed to be in bed until 1:30, but I picked her up after crying for 20 minutes. At least she took a small nap without fussing!
1:30pm - Fed
3:00pm - put in crib. Cried for 7 minutes before falling asleep.
3:37pm - crying. Only a 30 minute nap this time...
4:00pm - I picked her up again after crying for 20 minutes. Oops
4:30pm - Fed
6:00pm - put in crib. Fussed for a few minutes before falling asleep
6:35pm - woke up crying. Looks like she is loving the 30-40 minute naps today!
7:05pm - picked her up out of crib
7:30pm - Fed
8:50pm - put in crib for bed, fell right asleep!
12:15am - woke up - I let her fuss for 5 minutes before going in
12:20am - fed
12:40am - put back down in crib - fell right asleep
I was hoping for no more 12am/1am wake times, but she had one here. Hopefully she'll completely drop those soon!
There still was some crying, but I am SO happy that she basically fell asleep for each nap time. She really is a smart girl, and I'm sure she's catching on to this routine. Now if I could just get her to sleep for more than half an hour for naps!
