We decided to let the Love Bug go to bed drowsy tonight and see if she could fall asleep on her own. B agreed with me that we wouldn't let her go more than 5 minutes once she started crying, because we wanted to start slow (yes, a wimpy start, but it gets worse).
So B puts her down, starts her lullaby CD, turns on her Turtle light, and leaves the room. She starts crying about 3 minutes later....
I proceed to cry about 30 seconds after she started crying, blubbering that "she'll never trust us again"... and then I go get her about 30 seconds after that.
So much for attempt #1 at "sleep training".
