Day 54 - First night alone

Today's Tip - Don't go crazy trying to recreate your home environment elsewhere

Tonight my paretns will be watching our baby while my wife and I go to a hockey game. Since they live almost two hours away and we forgot the noisemaker, our baby monitors, a stroller and his bedtime book, we figured he'd be fussing all night and waking up every hour.

He slept for 7 hours straight. As long as you don't get into any really bad habits like taking him for a ride in the car every night before he goes to bed, or picking him up the second he cries in bed, a loose interpretation of your home environment and bedtime routine should work great for your child.
