Friday, 6 September 2013: One Hundred and Fifty Nine Days Old
Ayla and I had our first bedtime fight last night, and it was a doozy!
We were in a battle of wits, Ayla and I. She wanted to sleep in my arms and I wanted her in her bed.
Every time I put her down she’d start crying. I tried every trick in the book and I even googled “getting a five month old baby to sleep” but there was no new information to help me.
The 20 minute cry-cuddle-go down-cry fiasco continued over and over… For three hours.
It’s seems it may have just been once off though (touch wood) because its 8 o’clock and she’s out for the count.

Our average is two hours of getting Zoárd to fall asleep… Average as in “normal”. I mean it feels abnormal but it has been like this for a long, long time…
We take him out of the crib and in to our bed. We put him back in his crib. We take him out. We put him back. In and out, in and out…
Thanks! Ayla’s already starting to get better just in the last few days since I’ve made a routine and stuck to it. A two hour “normal” must be tough! I’ve heard baby boys can be a little more work that girls, lucky Zoards so cute! 🙂
