So, we are in a major adjustment phase with sleeping at our house. First off, Geddy is teething which has made my usually smiley, happy, peppy, little dude into a grumpy, short fused, sassy, little dude. I can understand the mood change but it has messed with his sleep (hence the lack of activity on my blog).
On top of teething, he weaned himself from nursing (without consulting me at all, *tear*) and so our bedtime routine is totally thrown off and there are lots of tears at night. I am trying a few different things but something that I really want to consider is adding a "crib buddy" or special blanket to comfort him. The problem is, he has never grown attached to any of his toys or blankets.
Some may frown upon the idea of having a "clutch" introduced to their child but I kind of like the idea. Call me crazy but I feel like it could help. So, I have tried putting Murphy the Moose (seen in his monthly growth pics), in his crib at night and during nap time. I'm not seeing any sparks fly between the two yet but I am hopeful that something clicks soon.
Do you have any advice on this matter? Has it worked for you? Are you glad that they have it?
