It has been a month since we put Adeline in Elias's room. He LOVES having her in there. He said that when we move, he doesn't want his own room, he wants Adeline in his room.
SO sweet, huh?
For those of you with older kids, I know you are snickering… I can enjoy it while it lasts, right?
Our Delta Children's Venetian crib that we received to review (and keep!) for Adeline is even more beautiful than I expected.
I love the white and can't wait to have a whole room of girly white furniture for Adeline. I think the rounded lines of the wood are really lovely and feminine.
We also really appreciated how easy the crib was to assemble. It didn't take long (which says a lot given that Matthew is not a very handy guy) and is very sturdy.
Another benefit to the Delta Children's Venetian crib is that it is a crib that will grow with her. The mattress can be positioned at three different heights, and then the crib converts to a toddler bed, day bed and full bed. Elias's crib didn't convert beyond a day bed, so this additional conversion rocks!
Adeline likes to sit in her crib and watch her little Baby Einstein Neptune Soother or just play. Elias has even sat in there with her and played a few times – so cute.
When it comes to bed time, typically, we put Adeline down first and then put Elias down. We have been using a sound machine app, which seems to help them both sleep.
Speaking of sleeping… Adeline is still waking up once or twice a night, but Elias never wakes up when she cries – probably because I fly in there like the Tasmanian Devil.
About two weeks ago, we tried letting her cry it out (and brought Elias in our bed), but the next day was the start of her RSV, so we haven't tried that again. I'm wondering if we should when she is feeling better.
Did you ever do the cry it out method? Did it work? What are your thoughts? I'm desperate for her to sleep (and for me to sleep), but I hate letting her cry…
I'd love your thoughts and experiences!
