    Jack Could Do It!...

    We had another successful night with the crib experiment. Jack slept all night long, from 8:40 p.m. until 6:45 a.m. He only woke up briefly (for less than a minute) and Hubby just patted his bottom and reassured him it was okay to go back to sleep, which he did. It looks like moving the crib into our room was the right decision, after all. Jack doesn't have to "cry it out" and our hearts don't have to break as a result. Phooey on the Ferber fans! They just don't know our son like we do.

    On another bright note, tonight is Jack's first birthday party! We'll be having family over and he'll get to make a mess out of his cake. I'll be sure to post some pictures of it all in the coming days. I can't wait to see him slap the cake with his tiny hands!

    So, I'm off to tidy up the house and play with my baby. I hope your day is as good as mine will be. As long as Jack gets rid of his poopy cramps by taking a larger-than-human dump, it should be a good day for us all in the Eatmisery household. Heh...

      Excellent! No doctor or baby 'expert' knows our children the way we know them. Great job! You all should be so proud of yourselves.

      Have a wonderful time this evening! Cake, yummy!

      And I hope he has his big poop before the guests arrive! :)

      So glad you have found something that works for all of you.

      Every child truly is different and a little experimentation is usually all it takes to figure out what is best for everyone.

      Hope the party is wonderful!

      What great news! No one knows their baby better than Mommy and Daddy -- I'm glad the experiment worked.

      And Happy 1st Birthday to baby Jack. Can't wait to see the pictures.

      At some poitn you gotta say phooey to all the advice and criticisms from "well-meaning" people. My three all slept in bed with me until they were about a year old. I got advice and criticism from all angles including sage warnings like "you'll warp that baby" and "he'll never sleep in his wn bed now" Time told the truth however, my kids are not warped (like I "did stuff" while they were awake?") and my kids all slept by themselves the day they showed signed of readiness. Not only that, but my kids are super secure and never wake us up without a damned good reason.

      Dontcha just love unsolicited advice? Kudos to you for doing what felt right for your family. No one knows better than momma!
