and then you read.
because you have to know what it is that you're doing wrong...
turns out babies don't work like other grown humans.
you would think, the more sleep during the day = less at night.
on the contrary...the better sleep/wake balance during the day = a better night's sleep.
some nights were good. we would do bedtime around 10...maybe 10:30 and she'd get to sleep by 11ish. and stay asleep. then, other nights...she'd be crabby from about 8:30 on...and fight and fight sleep until she tuckered out.
after researching, i'm thinking that her internal clock is probably ready for bed somewhere more around that 8-8:30 time. when she gets fussy.
friends told me about this "early" bedtime and i thought it was more about convenience. now, i get it... [cue lightbulb].
so, i'm going to give this a better try. ....and then i'm probably going to have to rework things just as soon as i go back to work...but that's ok.
she's worth it.
and, here's a video of drew fighting nap time yesterday.
