I really envy babies who are in dreamland most of the time. It has always been difficult to get Elyssa to sleep but my mum wasn't keen on relying on the "sarong" to rock her. She said my siblings and I could just easily nap in the crib last time. But after a whole afternoon of wailing from Elyssa (when I had to run errands on the Friday before I had to start work) and a bad headache for my mum, out came the trusty "sarong"!
At least she sleeps more nowadays and for a longer period of time. She'll still wail before she sleeps though. It's kinda funny - she'll wail and wail, and then fall fast asleep the next second. I've tried not overstimulating her and my mum has established a sleep routine for her, but still no change to this. The only way for her not to wail is to allow her to suckle to sleep.
Guess this is just her style..
