So this week I decided to make a big step and put Qiana to sleep in the porta-crib. Ever since she grew out of the moses basket (about december) I have just been putting her to sleep in the bed next to me... I know I know.... some may say it wasn't the best decision, but it's a queen bed, it's only me in it, and I don't move when I sleep, so we pretty much both just stayed on our own sides. But this week I decided to start getting her used to a porta-crib since I have some vacations planned, and she is getting older and gonna roll over soon. Well I set up the crib as a bassinet first, thinking maybe if I didn't have to put her all the way in the crib she would be less likely to wake-up...
I WAS WRONG!
Man, the first couple nights were rough. She was up every hour, and not a very happy girl. There were times when I really just wanted to put her back on the bed and get some sleep, but my stubborness wouldn't let me. Then last night I decided to take out the bassinet part and just see if the normal crib would be fine. the bassinet just kind of hangs from the top of the crib and slightly moves each time the baby moves, and i thought that is what was waking her up...
AND I WAS RIGHT!
she slept great in her crib last night, only waking up once to eat and then going back to bed. I even had to wake her up this morning to feed her and get her ready for the day.
So now I have to decide....do I buy an actual crib or stick with the porta-crib. and if I stick with the porta-crib do I buy one that will match her bedroom theme, or just get over it and use what I got?
