Solution to a fussy baby....


Reese was still not asleep at midnight last night and I was so tired so I turned on the dryer and bounced her in my arms standing next to it so she could hear the noise. When I got her to sleep I wanted to make sure she was really asleep before I tried to take her to bed. I put her in her bassinet and put it on the washer. The vibration combined with the noise knocked her out. She slept the entire night. First full night of sleep I have gotten in weeks!

Randi...that is too funny. I have discovered that you will do whatever you have to do to get that baby to sleep. Whether it be driving around town at 2 in the morning or putting the baby on the dryer. So glad you got a good night sleep. I never knew what sleep deprivation was til now. It will turn you into a crazy person. Sam was sleeping 10-12 hours for a few weeks...then this week it is more like 6-7. UGH! She is such a doll! Hope you are having so much fun and not too crazy! :) I may have to give the dryer a try! Love you!
