Since we got home from the hospital, Savannah has been sleeping in our room in her pack-n-play (PNP). This weekend we decided to move her up into her wonderful nursery. I went out and got a breathable bumper last weekend in anticipation of the day we were putting off. Saturday we were cleaning and Justin packed up the PNP and even moved the rocker upstairs. "No turning back now!!" as Justin said.
Saturday night was tough for me. I nursed her upstairs for the first time in her room and read her a story. I put her down in the crib, turned on the monitor, turned off the lamp, and walked out.
She did fantastic! She fell asleep right away. Us? Not so much! When I finally fell asleep, I slept pretty well surprisingly. Justin? Not so much. He apparently spent most of the night watching the monitor and watching her breathe. When he did doze off, he woke up in a panic. He was useless on Sunday because of the little sleep he got.
Sunday night, I let Justin have a turn at putting her to bed. He took her upstairs and we were trying to adjust the monitor because he had moved it's position on the crib. He said, "I can't do this. I need my sleep and I like her downstairs with us.". Next thing I knew, he had brought Savannah downstairs and headed back up to retrieve the PNP. She slept down in our room again and I suspect that's where she will for awhile now!
Paranoid parents? That's us!!
