I hate hate hate having to make Maria cry it out, but some days I don’t feel like I have a choice.
I let her cry when I held her. I danced with her. I rocked her. She was crying. We left her room and played. She played for 3 minutes happily with a burp cloth and then all of a sudden started crying even though she had 8 other toys within reach.
So after a half an hour, I had to put her in her crib. She has now been crying intermittantly for 15 minutes.
I think she misses Chad. Strange though how he’s never mentioned her crying when I’m not home to say good night to her!
oh.. it’s been quiet for 2 minutes and I hear deep breathing…
One thought on “Crying It Out”
argh, I hate it too, but sometimes there’s nothing else you can do. Sometimes even holding Maggie doesn’t help. We had to do that a bit yesterday… very draining!
