Did I do the right thing? Shelby Chappell Due November 29 (girl); 1 child; Alberta 1575 posts

Long story short, DS has done nothing but fussed no matter what I did today. Honestly it seems like he is fussing just to fuss. One of those days. I am also just having a rough day to begin with. Usually DS doesn't go to bed this early but I was about to finally just lose my shit and flip out. I could feel myself getting so worked up and so bloody angry. Counting to 10 wasn't working anymore. So I ended up putting DS to bed earlier then usual. I put him in his crib and walked away. He didn't fuss for long once I put him in his crib, not even a minute so I'm hoping he fell asleep right away. I walked around my place a bit and then started feeling guilty for having to put him to bed because he was driving me insane. Did I do the right thing? Today just really got to me obviously.

Everyone has those days. It's completely normal to sometimes feel like you're going to lose it even with all the methods you usually do to calm yourself down. I feel like as long as you didn't leave him there to cry for hours then you didn't do anything wrong. If he went to bed then he was obviously tired anyways

This. And maybe he was overly tired so the extra sleep won't hurt :)

Sometimes they need to go to bed early (not to early because they might wake up at like 4 am for the day). but still I would have done the same thing. I have before and will again.

Thanks ladies. I guess he really needed a good sleep. He slept for a good 14 hours last night. And that included 2 1 hour and a half naps :shock: I thought Tuesday would be the day he was worn out but he was great Tuesday just not yesterday. He seems to be in a much better mood so far today. Thank goodness. Don't know if I could handle another day like that lol.
