After spending tons of time sanding, staining, and refinishing this old cradle...
Keating hates it. LOATHES. it.
It is fine for little afternoon naps, but as soon as the lights are out at night, he despises it.
He can be sound asleep with his little mouth hanging wide open and as soon as I lay him in it, he starts wailing!
We have tried everything. We used it rocking and stationary. We have had the mattress inclined and flat. We got sleep positioners and a heartbeat bear. We tried swaddled and unswaddled. Nada. Nothing. The kid hates it.
Instead, this is his bed of choice.
Thank the good Lord and Fisher Price for the Little Lamb vibrating seat. Seriously.
Does it make me a bad mom that Im letting him sleep in it? I mean, I dont think it matters where he sleeps as long as he sleeps. Right?!
It makes it better that he looks so cute and cozy in it!
