OK... as some of you might recall, I posted about 3 weeks ago about Elijah's colic. Thank you to everyone who posted suggestions. We're managing as best we can. I have a new question. Because of the colic, for the past 6 weeks, the family has been basically "camping out" in the living room. Daddy slept on the couch, baby on the loveseat and mommy on the floor in front of baby. About a week ago, we all moved back into the bedroom, where we have a bassinet for baby. He made that move pretty well. Sometimes we put him in sound asleep, sometimes half asleep. I am worried about the move to the crib. I don't know if I'm more concerned with him or me. I'd love to finally be able to get some sound sleep (I wake up with every little peep of whimper) but I don't want to go check on him every two seconds. I am wondering what is the best way to getting some sound sleep out of my little one. We've started him on a so-so routine. He gets a bath, final bottle and rocked. He doesn't sleep soundly though and I'm afraid of him waking up and thinking he's all alone. Suggestions?
