Wow, I have fantastic friends, family, and readers :) Thanks everyone so so much for all of your advice in texts and emails about my sleeptime conundrum. I had heard such great things about Babywise that I took it as scripture and was literally wearing myself out trying to follow it to a tee...and then feeling guilty when I would only let her cry for 5 minutes and then holding her to sleep, or feeding her before the allotted time because she was hungry early.
Anyone who has a baby, read the comments from the post below. YOu guys had great advice. Today for the first time I'm not stressed about a schedule. Having a little meal structure is good, but I rocked her to sleep and didn't feel bad. It was great :) I will definitely look into the books recommended and take from each what I feel we should do. Hopefully there will be no more bedtimes with us both in tears! Love you all.
