Yes ,i finally did it ,well it wa shard at first he did cry for a bit ,but then i decided to go in i bought in a chair and sat beside him and rubbed his back until he fell asleep.
This will be better for him ,you see he has always been with me and my husband ,he has ben cosleeping ,he had very bad acid reflux and were always afraid he was gonna choke so we kept him close ,but now i decided it was time .
The dr told us not to rush him to quick so we decided to start with nap time ,so if i do this every day and once he gets use to it i thought then we could start with nites .
I miss have alone time with hubby and wellas you know cannot get much alone time with a little one with you ,LOL,, but I know That hubby loves Trent very much and that we enoyed having him close ,but i told him he needs his own space now we are not gonna rush it and if he wakes in the middle of the nite he can still come and be with us ,we have to at least try so he knows that .This is his bed but that mommy and daddy still want and love him .. I took a pic of him ,he is so beaituiful i know you cannot see his face i did not want to go in ,i did not want to wake him ..,mary
