This is something I NEVER thought I would type but its happening, has been for the last 2 days. My hand was sort of forced because J started screaming when we put him down for bed or naps so it was either sleep train or start bedsharing. I seriously considered bedsharing. It just didn't seem like a good idea to "go backwards" at this stage. Also, the pacifier was becoming an issue. He would wake for it and when we went in to replace it he would smile and coo and then FREAK OUT when we left thereby losing his pacifier again.
I wanted to post about it because I WAS very anti CIO. Like, I thought it was evil. I guess I'm sort of offering support to other moms who were against it bit are finding themselves changing their minds.
BTW It's very, very, very hard for me but its going so well. I cried every time he cried for the last two days. Honestly? I sobbed and felt tremendous guilt. I wouldnt even post about it on here because i felt so bad. But, after talking to some other moms I'm doing a lot better. Sometimes you just need someone else to tell you that it's OK and your not damaging your baby.
