Little Elvis sleeps in his crib!

After the hurt feelings (all of ours) of last night's cry it out session, Bob and I decided we'd try going in to calm our little guy every 5 minutes.

But first we had to calm him. He was mad at us and I was crying and Bob looked pretty stressed, so we decided to give him a bath. This lifted all of our spirits. Then Bob swayed with him for a while.

Then I fed him and he passed out cold at each breast.

We took him back to the crib, steeling ourselves for round 2, and he never woke up!

He slept for 3 and a half hours and then I went in and fed him and put him in the crib drowzy. Little Elvis was confused at first and took the pacifier and shushing very well. I left and he was quiet for about 5 minutes, then got a little fussy.

After 5 minutes I went in and soothed him, then left. He fussed for 5 more minutes and Bob went in. And right as I was about to head in after 5 minutes, he got quiet. I went in to check on him 30 minutes later and he was sleeping like a superstar, arms and legs splayed in every direction!

(I'm sure he was just exhausted, and we'll have more issues tonight, but I'm so proud of him!!)

He slept so well over the weekend! He had a couple of issues on Monday night, but we were able to finally get him in his crib for a good 3 hour stretch. Thanks again for the tips!
