Letting her cry it out?!?!

I am sitting here wondering whether i should go in and rescue my baby or not who is crying in her crib. Its 10:20pm, and I put her down at 8:45pm. At 8pm she was falling asleep in my arms and I thought, I better get her in her bath so she can get to sleep cause she is tired! Is the bath to blame??

She keeps waking every 5-15 min. Every time I go in and put her binkie in her mouth and rub her cute little head and she falls back to sleep. (until she wakes back up!) This has been going on for a few weeks now and honestly...I can't keep doing this. I work full time. The second I get home, Jake is ready to unload her to me cause he needs a break himself before work. But, then I don't get a break and I live for 9pm when my baby is supposed to go to bed and I am supposed to get a few hours to accomplish SOMETHING!! Some nights I just want to cry. Some nights I do cry. Some nights I just get flat out angry and then I have to let her cry because I don't want to be angry around her.

I wish we had family close by. I wish I could have Jake home at nights.

By the way...I went and soothed her back to sleep. It's not the easiest to just let her cry. Plus I have been reading these books that tell me I am creating a sleep fear in my child when I don't go in when she crys. I also read books that say babies need to cry it out a bit. I just don't know what I believe yet?!

Oh she is waking up I think? or is she laughing in her sleep?? Oh my gooey! I just love her to pieces. Yep waking up! Gotta go!

  1. heart goes out to you....I know how fustrating that can be...which you were closer too! But just remember that in "babyland" nothing stays the same forever....times goes so a few weeks it will change, and in a few more weeks, it will all change year at this time, you will be saying "where did my baby go?""
