Jack just took his first crib nap in almost three full weeks! We put a window A/C in his room last week, and it was letting SO much more light in. We tried blocking the accordion sides with black cloth napkins, but it wasn’t enough. Today, I turned off the A/C (which will not really be an option later in the summer) and hung a dark comforter over the window. It got really dark. Duh.
Jack fell asleep in the crib (after some protest) about half an hour after I put him in it, and he slept for nearly 90 minutes. Fingers crossed this is the start of something awesome and not a fluke!
