Since Little One learned to pull up (yes, she's doing that now), getting her down for naps has been crap-tastic. This morning, I nursed her to sleep which took all of 7 minutes, let her sleep for 4 more minutes before getting up and putting her in the crib. Not a minute later POP! she was up on her hands and knees.
Gone are the days of 5-7 minutes of fussing before she crashed for an hour. Here are the days of 30 minutes of fussing/pulling up/crawling around the crib before she sleeps for only 30 minutes.
Am I a mean mean mommy for insisting she have that "quiet time" when she's obviously tired? Or am I missing the window of opportunity to get her down quickly? Or should I just let her sleep in my arms while impatiently thinking about all the things I could be doing which are harder to accomplish when she's awake and demanding my attention?
The afternoon naps are a rinse and repeat. Please tell me it gets easier!
