Last night went terribly. I am thinking part of it is the hour drive home we had, which Pookie slept through. That was 5:00-6:00pm. Today I tried to do the same routine for naptime and it was all going so well... then she just WOULD NOT nap without nursing. I spent an HOUR reading books, rocking her, singing etc. For most part she was just whiny and fussy. Finally she got crying really hard and I ended up nursing her. She fell asleep within a couple minutes (pictured above). She naps no problem for DH and my mom without nursing. I just feel really discouraged and I am trying hard not to be angry with Pookie. Rationally I know it is not her fault at all and I try to stay as loving and calm as possible, but inside I can feel my blood boiling with anger. After today I just want to give up... It makes me sad because I know life will be so much easier when she goes to sleep without nurisng. I am thinking about the future and another baby and I just want things to go as smooth as possible once I get pregnant and once a new baby arrives.
Tonight Daddy will try putting Pookie down. He doesn't have much patience at all for this type of thing, so I am not very hopeful.... but I do think there is a chance she will go down fine for him since I won't be there. Cross your fingers for us!
