The Accidental "Cry It Out" Session
Oh my gosh!
I feel like the worst mother ever!
So, as my followers remember, Noah is now officially sleeping in his crib.
I, therefore, sleep with the baby monitor on my bedside.
Last night, Noah starting rustling around at about 12:15 p.m., so as directed, I set my little timer for 15 minutes and turned the monitor down. After 15 minutes, I usually get up to check and see how he is doing.
Well.....last night, I never turned the timer on - I pressed the wrong button (not knowing) and subsequently turned the monitor down.
I fell back asleep and then I jolted awake, not knowing the time, assuming that he had fallen back asleep........ OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!! It was 5:00 a.m.!!!!
I rushed into the baby's room and lo and behold, he was awake and smiling!
How long had he cried? Who knows.....but as Jonathan put it.....he survived....he's alive and he was happy!
What a night!
