So it's 11:18pm. When I put the Squirrel down each night, I leave her door closed so I don't wake her up. Just before I go to bed, I open the door in case the monitor goes kaput in the middle of the night. I just opened up the door and was knocked down with the stench of the dreaded dirty diaper. I gave her booty a little pat and sure enough, it's chocked full.
Harps is in one of those "phases" where she's not going down easily. She cried for a good 45 minutes in bed tonight before passing out (note that it was 1 hr 45 min last night so we're improving), but once she's out, she's down for the count. So here's the dilemma - do I wake her up, change the diaper and risk a midnight meltdown? Or do I let her sleep through it since its clearly not bothering her now? Is my child going to have a serious case of chapped, red bum when she wakes up? It's too late to call anyone for advice so I'm reaching into the blogging abyss. Anyone, anyone???
And feel free to give advice in the morning so I know what to do this next time this issue comes around.
Oh, the joys of first time parenting!
