Hi neekie, replying a bit late here but wanted to say you're doing a great job. In my highly inexpert opinion there is nothing wrong with letting your 6 month old have a grizzle. As the mum you know their cries better than anyone.
Sorry this turned into such a sh1t fight but its something everyone has an opinion on. Don't worry, it was bf/ff/vaginal birth/c-section/smacking/leaving your kid in the car while you get petrol a few weeks ago. BH is a cyclical sort of place lol
Both have been happy, settled babies.
To clarify. From 6 months a baby is capable of sleeping 10-12 hours. Many do. Some don't. It is
Not normal for a baby to wake 5+
Times per night.
I've copied and pasted some links referencing this... So you can get a Freakin clue
I work closely with dozens of families. Sleeping through is the norm for some babies, waking hourly is the norm for others. Babies who wake 5 or more times each night are not abnormal, they simply have different priorities to other babies. I'm sorry to those people who want to label them abnormal or say they are not good babies. They are perfectly normal.
Baby is abnormal, has failed or is anything less than wonderful.
It's about saying the behavior is not
Normal. So parents can do
Some tweaking to their routine and techniques, get some help from
Others (eg sleep school), get some rest and have a rested bubba.
I repeat: bubs that don't sleep through are just as gorgeous and wonderful as those bubs that do!
