Trying to get my first born to sleep in a crib literally made me go crazy. Here I was, a fresh, wrinkle-less young mother…and I was confused. I mean, at some point every baby needs to move to a crib right?! My little firstborn had been sleeping with us in our “family” bed for over a year and I thought that it was time to move him into a crib because…well…that’s just what you do in our country right?! Well guess what…he HATED that crib. He despised that crib. He thought that crib was a torture chamber. So then I of course in my new motherhood state thought something was wrong with him! “Why won’t he sleep in this lovely stupid crib?!” Now I know…no, it wasn’t the issue with my little boy. He was a normal kid who wanted to be cuddling with him mother. It was THE CRIB. Otherwise known as the baby torture chamber. *Disclaimer. Your baby might love the crib. And that’s awesome! This article is not about your baby if that’s the case and it clearly didn’t ruin motherhood for you. 🙂 Here are some other articles to read about sleep that you might find helpful: Milk Meg sleep articles.
