My Blood Pressure CAN'T Take This

We are 'crying it out'. Dr. Ferber, I hate you. Okay, not really, the man is a genius...but when your baby is hoarse because he screamed so much before he finally gave in and went to sleep...that is hard for a mom to take. I know this is what Trent needs, and I know I'm not hurting him...but geez it's tough!! He got to where I fought him before every nap because he would start to fall asleep and then jerk himself awake and cry. Trent was a textbook case in Dr. Ferber's book, so we decided to give it a go. It's taken about 40 minutes both times he's gone down so far...but the point is he's gone down... I just hope I don't have a heart attack before this is all over. ;)

We've been Ferberizing for weeks now, and it absolutely gets better! Of course I'm writing this as I try to distract myself from Zack's screaming.

Trent is adorable!

My sister made me put Skyler down when she was younger and she would do the same thing. Scream bloody murder. I'd beg my sister to let me go get her, but she never agreed. Terrible feeling, but you're right- it doesn't hurt them one bit. They need the sleep.

Turn the tv volume up?
