Today our baby won, we didn’t stick to routine or the “rules” we have in place. Today our baby won and that’s okay!
You see we have been away for 3 weeks and during that time she was unbelievable – an absolute superstar! In and out the car like a yoyo! In the pram for hours! New surroundings and three days of travelling there and back! Barely a cry most days, please note I said most!
Rhemy’s routine went out the window. Her bedtime was still the same every night but naps took place when we could get her to have them (and wherever we were). She started to wake pretty early in the morning but still slept through so really no complaints from me.
You see we really do like Rhemy to have a routine, to have playtime and to know when things are happening during the day but today she won. She dictated the whole day. She slept when she wanted. (3 hours at 10.30am) she’s generally a afternoon napper and a morning power napper. She was rocked to sleep, which is never needed at bedtime (nap time maybe). When she woke she spent time in our bed! I know, I know not the best idea!
Surely it’s okay for her to have a win somedays. Maybe I am in the minority, maybe I am not but as far as I can see it is!
Rhemy won today and that’s okay!
