Lauren sleep update

Thanks everyone who commented or emailed me about baby sleep stuff. The update is that we are putting Lauren down to go to sleep in her bassinett but when she wakes up around 3:30 or 4:00 to eat, she spends the rest of the night with us, usually without waking again until morning. It's our compromise and it's working for now. I also put her down in the bassinette for her naps. She makes little pip sounds and plays with her pacifier for awhile (she can now take it out of her mouth with her hands and can occasionally even put it back) and then falls asleep on her own. So, Dr. Wu should be happy that she's "self-soothing" and we are happy we don't lose the closeness of cuddling with her, especially in the mornings. She won't be still doing this when she's 14! But for now, we are enjoying more together-time with the little girl while still giving her some independance.
