Anja began sleeping in her own room shortly after her birthday. I think it’s been much harder for me than for her. No longer can I hear her little peep and get up, take 5 or 6 steps and gaze on her beautiful sleeping face. I now have to go down the hall and around the corner. I miss her. She’s been taking naps in her crib for months and months, but sleeping there at night just isn’t the same. Sometimes I gaze into her pack ‘n’ play (still set up in our room…don’t ask me what I’m waiting for) and long to reach down and touch her tummy, feel its rise and fall. I realize I can still do that in the other room, but she doesn’t yet sleep as soundly in there, so I abstain from entering unless necessary.
The transition is going well…for her. How about you folks? Anyone have a tough time transitioning a baby from one sleeping situation to another? Was it tougher on the baby or on you?
