    I have two children aged 27 months and 8 months, both still wake through the night and neither has their emotional needs unmet, if they are both in need of me at night i simply pop them both into my bed.
    There is a reason health experts advise two years between pregnancies, because caring for kids is Exhausting!!! (im not having a go at families with close age gaps, i didnt listen either 😜)
    Wow thanks a lot. Now anyone who can't for whatever reason get up to their baby every hour is neglectful. I can see this doing wonders for mine and others self esteem.. yep I should probably jump of a tall cliff now because yes I am a terrible neglectful mum. It would be better for our children to have their mums in a psych ward than leave them to whinge occasionally. This thread is not about babies sleeping through the night at all.. most mums who resort to controlled.crying have babies who wake up constantly or have other demands on them.

    I just don't understand why people are arguing with me about giving a young baby a cuddle if they are upset. It just baffles me.

    Ok I'm trying to be rational here ... I think the issue that is coming about here is from the definition of the type of crying ... A grizzly overtired baby is very different to a hysterically crying bub ... Yes?

    Btw ... The op was about day sleeps not night sleeps

    About 2 -3 hours, is that normal?

    Neekie, sorry not much advice here but just wanted to let you know that ALL of my 5 kids have been terrible catnappers when younger. They slept ok at night (up probably once to twice a night at 6 months) but during the day I could only get max 30 mins before they woke up. I never bothered trying to resettle as I basically knew I couldn't do it, so sucked it up until at around 10-11 months they started miraculously getting into some kind of routine and had more consistent longer day sleeps.
    I guess what I am trying to say is not to panic too much, a lot will change in the next 6 months and hopefully your DS will be sleeping heaps better by the time number 2 arrives.

    I just wanted to let the OP know I think you sound like your doing a great job. I would let your own judgement guide you. You know your baby best so trust your instincts. Also congrats on your pregnancy!
    yes fair enough...but saying a baby wakes that much isnt normal???
    Thats being rude...

    Just to clear things up.

    1. My original post was about DAY sleeping.
    2. I should have worded my post differently but didn't realize the commotion when I say the word cry that it has many meanings.
    3. I never ever let my baby get to the stage of distressed CRYING he will sook and grizzle and be upset but I never will or have let him be distressed.
    4. My baby sleeps fine at night, he may wake and grizzle for his dummy every now and then but usually will only wake for a bottle but is down from 6pm till 6pm.
    5. I've been. Doing it my way for the last 2 days and today all day he went down with out crying, every time, he went down for the night with a slight grizzle but is fast asleep. Looks like I did the right thing. Happy mum- happy baby!
    6. Every women regardless of her parenting style should be shown respect. It's unfair to make any parent feel the way some women on here have. We are creating the future and we should all get along!

    Thank you! Today was a breeze! It made me feel so much happier about the approach I've taken because it obviously worked out for us
