Mom's visiting!

Mom Platt is visiting this week! She's spending lots of time snuggling with her 12th grandbaby. I should clarify and say that Philip is not spending a lot of time sleeping on Grandma because once he falls asleep she immediately puts him in his swing or pack n' play. She said he needs to learn to sleep alone and not be snuggled all the time or he'll only sleep while being held. Which might sound slightly harsh, but in the time that Mom has been here Philip has been sleeping better at night in his co-sleeper (and not asking to be held or snuggled at night)- he'll eat and then go right back to sleep. What a wonderful thing! Clearly wisdom from a mother of 5 and grandmother of 12.

it's not harsh at all, you are teaching him how to sleep, a very important skill.
