Initial trials did not go so well. This picture is just from the middle of the day, though, not when I was actually trying to put him down for a nap or the night. Fortunately, it turned out that he just didn't want to be set down, and not that he cared one bit about actually sleeping in the crib.
Two days later? He has not had a lick of trouble sleeping in there, and actually we had one of our best nights yet last night, though it probably was due more to dad feeding him a MASSIVE bottle (4 oz) of pumped milk before bed, not that he was in the crib. He slept from 9 to almost 2. We may start making the big bottle a nightly ritual!
Anything for that milk drunk look, right?
