Since day 1 in the hospital, I have co slept with my baby. The nurses thought I was absolutely crazy, but I loved cuddling with my newborn. Fast forward 9 months, and she is still sleeping with us at night. Until now.
Sleep Training Mom Fail
I tried to sleep train my baby in her crib last night, for the first time, and failed miserably. I got weak and put her in our bed in the middle of the night when she wouldn’t stop crying. I woke up to little Audrey rolling off our bed, and I was shocked I let that happen to her! My heart was broken!! Thank God Audrey wasn’t.
This was absolutely my SCARIEST moment of motherhood, so far. I had read so many horror stories of co-sleeping and felt so lucky this was my wake up call. I absolutely LOVE co-sleeping, but I realize my baby is safest in a crib.
As much as I love hearing her little breathing in the night, I care more about her well-being. I’m excited for the future when Audrey can come crawling into bed on her own, but for now, in her crib she stays.
