Sleep Sack to the Rescue!

A REVELATION!!!  I had a theory last night.  Let me explain.

A few days ago, we took Davie out of the swaddler and put her in a little 0-6 month sleep sack so she could sleep on her tummy.  She did AMAZING for those first two nights, and we were so excited for her.  I washed the sleep sack and it got a little snug so I went to buy a 6-12 month one, which is very roomy.  The next couple nights that she wore that one she did TERRIBLE.  I mean, waking up once every 1-2 hours.  The night before last was awful.  That was also the last night for Steven to be home.  Yesterday Davie and I packed up to meet my parents at the lakehouse.  

I was really nervous about Davie and I being on one end of the house by ourselves, and her sleeping in a new place, and doing so bad the nights before.  I put her in her smaller sleep sack and she went to sleep so easily . . . without a pacifier even.  So weird.  She slept the whole night through without fussing.  I, however, did not sleep so soundly.  Poppa and I both went in to check on her multiple times.  But I'm just so glad to figure this little secret out!!!  She wants to be cozy.
