OK now this thread may seen annoying or wierd but I am being very genuine and not smug here .
My son is 15 months old and has been in and out of hospital for approximatly 5 months of that.
Barely a day goes by for us when someone says 'oh what a good baby', when he first came home from SCN he cried due to reflux but once he was medicated for that he hardly ever cried. My MIL actually claimed she had never heard him cry for months but she knew he wasnt deaf because we have had him tested.
He has slept through the night from 8 months and settles best in his cot.
He is always happy and content and even when having x rays or injections he doesnt cry (perhaps because he is so used to them).
When he was very sick and I was emotional I was convinced he was too good for this world, but now I know that's the wrong way too think and I should cherish him which I do .
Sometimes I worry though, if his being so sweet natured may mean he doesnt get the attention he deserves from teachers or other people because the louder more attention seeking kids will be taking it.
Odd thing to worry about I know
I dont really mind that people say he is good or brave or an old soul or whatever but sometimes I wonder why.
