I know that a lot of magazines, books and other parents will tell me that you need to let your baby cry. But it’s hard and I give in.
Our little girl falls asleep about 8 and sleeps all though the night. That’s why when she woke at 9pm tonight, something seemed off. She was crying so I peeked into the room just a little and she was sitting up in her crib with big tears rolling down her cheeks. I had to go rescue her.
I’m not sure why she was crying, but I usually blame it on teething, however tonight she seems more un-happy than usual.
I got her calmed down, but she woke right up when I put her down in the crib. Now mom’s using her magic touch to get Lily back to sleep.
I do believe that you have to let babies cry sometimes, but I think I know the difference between real and fake cries and this one was totally real. I just had to give in.
If that makes me a softy, then I’m fine with that.
