What part of "not hold" do you not understand?

Julia has been sleeping like crap lately. And I think we figured out why.

When Grandpa and Grandma were here, they would hold her til she fell asleep. We don't do that. We put her in her crib, she rolls over and goes to sleep. Now she has been screaming 2+ hours when we put her down to sleep for the past few days.

Ugh!!!!! I hate this! She is so stubborn and can hold out for a really long time.

And the grandparents will be coming back in a week. Just when we'll be undoing what they did, they'll hold her to sleep yet again.

We told them repeatedly while they were here to NOT do that. But Grandpa cannot hear Precious cry for more than 30 seconds without saying, "What are you doing to my granddaughter?"

Grandparents who spoil + the most stubborn baby in the world = a very, very frustrating weekend.

Ugh Ugh Ugh Ugh!! I'm so frustrated for you!!! Grandparents have the best of intentions, but they don't always do the best things....

Ugh. I'm sorry. We're undoing grandparental intervention here as well, but it's all food related. Good intentions + Stubborn baby = Crabby Mommy.

Thanks - ugh, it was a milestone day of NO nap. And she fell asleep in her high chair at 6pm.
