Baby Whisperer for Toddlers Solves Sleep Issues part 4

Tonight we finally got our good little sleeper back. We kept her up a little later and followed the new routine we've been using for the last several days. She crawled into bed. We covered her with a blanket "just like mommy and daddy," and I patted her back for several minutes. She never tried to get out of bed or make shadow puppets with her hands or feet. She never formed my fingers into letters in the ASL manual alphabet, and she never cried. Yeah! Is it the Baby Whisperer for Toddlers? Probably to some degree. Is it that she was really tired and had no other distractions? Again, probably. Was it the suggestion that she was a big girl like mom and dad? Could be. Which brings me to another point...why do parents get upset when their teens bend to peer pressure when the parent has been using peer pressure to bend the child to their will since infancy? Just a thought.

Wish us continued luck in getting our toddler to sleep at night.
