I'm one of the lucky ones that has a LO that STTN. She used to go down at 8pm and fall asleep on her own shortly thereafter. Lately she's up a little bit later, til 9pm or so. This next week is my last week home before going back to work, which I'm dreading, and so up until tonight, every time LO wasn't ready to sleep, I enjoyed the opportunity to spend more time with her.
Tonight, though, for some reason, when DD cried in her crib, I got really frustrated. I took her out and nursed her a bit, and tried again, but she still ended up crying anyway. She's now asleep in her swing, but I feel terrible because I wasn't soothing or nurturing- I was frustrated and angry and let it show. It's not like I've been alone with her all day- DH has been home and took care of her just as much as I did. I feel like such a bad person and horrible mother.
