Whoever came up with that expression clearly never looked after an infant.
Or, if they did, they never tried to put an infant to sleep in a cot. Or a Moses Basket. Particularly in the day time.
Maybe they had tried to put a baby, say my baby TJ, to sleep in a car seat. Or a swing chair. Or maybe even just on themselves. That’s all fine for the most part.
But in a cot? Never. Not with a hot water bottle. Not with white noise. Not with a mini version of a somewhat successful night time routine.
With TJ’s first date with the nursery looming in the distance, I’m determined to put a day time nap in the cot into his routine. But so far, TJ is just as determined to not.
Anyone got any tips?
