Thanks for the suggestions on yesterday's post! Well it's official. Hailey spent her first night in her big girl bed! It was a total success. Now if only EVERY night will be like last night! :) I haven't completely baby proofed the room yet...I mean I made sure all the outlets are plugged, put stuff up higher, took her trash can out of the room and things like that. But I need to take all her toiletries that are now hidden behind her crib into the bathroom and things like that. I put a gate on the door so she can't wander around all by herself if she does wake up. All I had to do was lay down with her for less than 10 minutes and she was out! She woke up at 6:00 this morning and went to her door and fussed. I'm sure she just woke up a little and got confused on where she was. Anyway, so it turned out ok. I even figured out the bed rail that my mother in law bought me yesterday. It works great!
She's still really fussy & cranky however, and she's still not eating much. I will admit I don't really have the patience for constant whining and fussing. It really grates on my nerves. :( I know she's still not feeling great, and I know her teeth have to be bothering her too, but I can't help but think she's learning some of this fussy behavior from the sitter's son who is 2 months older than she is. He is ALWAYS throwing a fit or fussing. Literally every time I see him. It's hard because I don't want to ignore her if she's not feeling well of course, but at the same time I don't want her to learn that fussy behavior is the way to get everything she wants! Any suggestions???
