We may have unwillingly started a bad habit with Henry last Sunday with all our guests. He was passed around from one person to another for pretty much the entire day, sleeping on everyone and now it seems that during the day, he will only sleep on Chris or myself not in his bassinet. We have no problem getting him to sleep in it during the night but during the day… no dice. He’ll be in a deep sleep on my chest or Chris’ chest then we’ll put him down in the bassinet and within 5 minutes he’ll wake himself up and start crying/screaming to be picked up. At first I thought he was just hungry but after having unsuccessfully tried to feed him a few times I realized that the second we pick him up, he calms down and falls asleep again. I kind of feel glued to the glider during the day. I’m going to have to wear a baby sling at all times if I want to get anything done. I’m not sure I’m ready to just let him cry it out in the bassinet. His little cries break my heart. Already he’s got us wrapped around his little finger.

    Strap a sling to Ginger and let her calm him into sleep. You know she’s dying to.
