Ferber sleep update #3 - Third time is the charm

Dear Dr. Ferber,

THANK YOU.

Love,
Jill

Edie cried for two minutes last night and then fell silent. Jeff and I both stared at each other, totally baffled. Then she started crying again. Jeff and I both made faces as if to say, "Okay, that's my girl." Because Edie doesn't give up that easily. It was almost more confusing than exciting when she went quiet after only 2 minutes. She cried for 10 minutes at which point Jeff checked on her. After he left the room she literally cried for 30 seconds before falling completely asleep for the night. AND SHE DID NOT GET UP UNTIL 6:30AM. She cried quietly for a minute around 3am, but it never escalated and didn't require us to check on her. It's working peoples, it's working!

p.s. Is Edie's bathrobe from the Fairmont Olympic hotel?!?!?! I'm pretty sure you are supposed to leave those in your room when you check out...
