As I write this, I'm doing the "mean mama" thing with Jake. Dont worry people..it's not as serious as it sounds! You see, Jacob is a Mama's boy (as was Jordan), and he has gotten to the point that he doesn't want to sleep unless I'm holding him (or feeding him..ouch!) And it's just time for me to put a stop to it. Which means putting him down in his crib, and walking away. It kills me, I hate it, makes me feel like a mean mama. I did this with Jordan too. The first night, he screamed for 3 hours straight! The second night, for probly 2 hours. The third night, about 30 minutes. And from then on, he was just fine all by himself. So, I know it's gonna be ok eventually. Right now it just sucks. Sorry Jake.
