Friday Flick - one day late

We've started trying to convince Eleri to nap for a reasonable amount of time in her crib. She was napping there, but only for 20-30 minutes at a time. I kept reading that they have to learn to fall asleep there if they're going to sleep for longer, so instead of rocking her all the way to sleep, I rocked her to drowsy and put her in.
She did NOT approve. She would NOT lie down. Poor thing was so tired, but soooo stubborn!



Every time I tried to lay her down, she'd get mad, and sit right back up again and do this. So I ended up swaddling her and she napped for a little while. Then this morning I swaddled her at the beginning, and she slept for 90 minutes. She was probably worn out from all her protest sit/sleeping.

That was good enough for FHV. But I am very frustrated because I didn't ever get to see what happened next. Did she fall over or give up and lie down?

I laughed all the way through the clip.

What a determined little booger!!! You do know this doesn't bode well for your future...

I was thinking the same thing as Fannie. Did she eventually lay down?
Too adorable!
Glad she's sleeping better now.
It makes life so much easier to handle.
