So... DD has had a wicked cold for a few solids days but is on the mend... I had to AP to sleep for naps and BT while she was sick... she was waking staying awake with a stuffy nose during the night - one night for 2 hrs and another one was 3 hrs! UGH! I had taken her to our bed so I could at least rest while she dozed on my chest semi-upright so she could breathe better...
I thought we would be stuck in AP hell for a while... not so much!
I felt that she was well enough yesterday to get back to it... put her down as I normally would after her BT bottle with a quick snuggle and a kiss... Told her I loved her and left the room... just got out the door and she started to cry... in to her room right away and she was easily settled with a bit of patting and verbal reassurance... out again and she STTN 10 hrs (still not 100% well, but HUGE improvement over 8 hrs of broken sleep the previous 2 nights!).
I did AP for her nap today as she is still rather tired from the shorter night... but she went down easily and slept for 2.5 hrs
Bedtime tonight only needed a quick walk in and verbal shush with a firm hand and she went to sleep. Fingers crossed that she manages to STTN again and we get a bit more than 10 hrs
BW is the BEST!
