I’ll admit it, I’m a softie.

Sort Of Sad Lily

Sort Of Sad Lily

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.

    Wimp. 😉

    Children are very good at manipulating us to get what they want… even when they are only a few months old. They lessons they learn now will last a lifetime.

    I’m confident it wasn’t manipulation. Something was bothering her and she needed us. We can tell when she’s faking it.
