Hey Cameron, I happened onto your blog when I was trying to find some comfort about leaving my baby in September. I have a 2 year old and a 9 month old. I've already left the 2 year old overnight several times, she wanted to!

But the baby is different. More of an attached kid... And I'm freaking out about it. I will be gone from Thursday to Sunday. And the baby will be 13 months at the time, most likely nursing without a bottle. But who knows at that point. My first stopped nursing at 12 months and wouldn't do it at all.

Anyway! Just wanted to know how you managed 5 nights and how you think the baby would've done with someone other than your husband, like my sister or something like that.

I need encouragement!!!!!

You can email me :

Hi. I came across your blog when I was searching for info on transitioning from 2 naps to one. My baby, Ava, is only 11 months old but she has started to take a long nap in the morning and fighting her afternoon nap. She did this all week last week. I have always had to let Ava cry because she never wanted to sleep and comforting her didn't help. After sleep training her at 9 months, she got much better with napping. She didn't cry when I put her down. Before 9 months she cried about 80 percent of the time before naps eventhough I did not take her out or go in there. She is very strong willed! She started crying again last week for her secong nap and just wouldn't nap. I really don't want to hear her cry anymore in her crib, which is why I am thinking of adjusting the naps. Has Owen cried a lot to fight naps? Anyway, I feel confused about whether or not I she start to push her morning nap back and consolidate the 2. How old was Owen when you did this? also, it sounds like Owen was just like Ava as a little baby. She cried all of the time, I know now it was from being overtired thanks to the weissbluth book. Those days were hard and I think they have scarred me to some degree. I am rambling, but I just wanted to tell you that I love your blog and your beautiful photographs and to ask for a little advice based on your experience. I look forward to hearing from you, if you have the time.
