Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!!
I just wanted to write a quick post thanking everyone who responded to my Sleep Deprived post below. I really took your advice to heart and decided to try the earlier bedtime. It worked!!!! We gave Jillian a bath at 7:30, right before her 8:15pm feeding. We also used for the first time the Johnson & Johnson's Lavender bath. Jill passed out after she ate and Jeff gently swaddled her and put her to bed in her crib. She didn't wake up again until 2am! Five hours of sleep, and right through her fussy time. I couldn't be more greatful to you all for your encouraging advice and support. We are going to try this again tonight and hope that this soon becomes our new routine. I also took your suggestion and ordered "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child." I can't wait for it to come. Again, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart from taking the time to write such encouraging and supportive words. They helped!!!
