MY DAUGHTER IS NAPPING!!! Not little naps. LOOOOONNNGGG naps. No fussing. No screaming. Just napping. Nice naparoos. I loooove me some naps. :)
And it's all thanks to my amazing perseverance and lexapro that I didn't pull out every flippin strand of hair in the process. She's 9 months old and proud momma has FINALLY learned how to put the sista down for a nappy nap.
My secret weapon?
No really, they put my child to sleep.
Yes. Their cracked out songs about " no no no don't bite your friend " are like soft lullabyes to my darlings ears. The rave inspired doped up spinning colors. Ahhhhhh....relaxing. Any other child would be on sensory overload. Not lillypants. She's soothed.
My nap routine--I'm sharing it. Only because it took me 9 months to perfect.
Lights out in room
Let lillers press play on her nap cd
Grab Pink Blanket
Cuddle on Couch
Press play on SLEEP Yo Gabba Gabba episode forever saved and gold starred on the DVR
Kisses on forehead while the weirdos "get their wiggles out"
Watch 5 minutes. Seriously, that's all it takes. Just enough DJ Lance Rock to wet the palette really....
Place in pack and play. Princess Diva prefers the pack and play for naps and the crib for bedtime.. (trial and error ladies)
Cover with pink blanket and give her the stuffed bear
Do the I hope she sleeeeeppppppssss dance
Take a deep breath.
Watch ELLEN!!! :) :) :)
We're going on TWO FULL weeks of successful morning and afternoon naps. HOLLA!!--LLUJIAH!
Just thought I'd share the outrageous news, my friends.
