Fine. I admit it. I got judgy. When I had one baby. One baby who at 12 weeks started sleeping from 7-7 and never stopped. One baby who rarely got up in the middle of the night save a few teething episodes.
I got judgy when someone had an eight month old who still got up at night. An eight month old who wouldn't cry it out. I judged. What baby doesn't eventually fall asleep?
I got judgy when someone still got up to feed their old enough to sleep through the night baby at say eight months old.
Guess who is eight months old tomorrow?
Apparently it wasn't our stellar parenting skills that had Cannon sleeping through the night at 12 weeks. Damn.
Two hours of scream and sooth and cry it out and not falling asleep and Tylenol and orajel and mylicon and inconsolable baby. Two hours. Usually it's not that bad. Usually it's a passy at one and feeding at 4.
I took her to the doctor a week ago. For sure, she had an ear infection. She did not. Damn.
Because what goes around, comes around, judge away. I can not get this child to sleep through the night. Breast milk. Formula. Solids.
Praying that one of the biggest honking white teeth pops through those precious gums today.
The Best part? You would never know that she barely slept. This child, is always happy. Except in the middle of the night.
And before you start sending self soothing advice. She puts herself down for naps. And before you suggest I send the husband in instead, read the post before this one. And before you tell me I am doing something wrong, remember you'll get yours. Just like I am right now.
