    I am on my out the door for the school drop off but I wanted to send you some Honestly this stage when they just don't sleep and only want you is the hardest stage. My 4mth old ds is just like k. I am blessed that I have many hands (in older siblings) to help.

    Default Tell me it gets easier...

    This reminds me of this awesome blog post

    http://momastery.com/blog/2012/01/04...nt-carpe-diem/

    It resonates with me so much at times.

    My babies only sleep on me or in the car during the day, but nighttime is slowly getting easier (that being said I'm still up 2-10 times a night) in a hurry so can't write more now but I can relate!

    Sure it gets easier, they'll move out and they won't be your problem any more

    IS moving to the UK an option and boarding school at 7? (Kidding)

    WE only have the one child at hte moment not for want of trying though. DS is 4.5. He was a horrible baby, perhaps not as bad as KAtelyn but I struggled. I had read way too much about what they should be doing rather than just going with it. IT sounds like you do have things sorted for what works in your family. I sympathise wanting to not have children attached all the time. She is very cute. people used to say to me 'HE has excellent attachment'. Mmmm yes it is a good thing but I wish he would do it to someone else too.

    It will get easier, the thing that are hard now will be easier later.

    If you do want sleep strategies or help contact your child health nurse they should be able to assist you and may even reccommend a sleep school - if that is what *you* want.

    I hope you can manage to get a rest at some point today

    Default Re: Tell me it gets easier...

    I did see a health nurse. It was pretty bad, I'm glad I have a lot of self assurance in how I parent so I could walk away ****ed off rather than crushed. Basically was told I stuffed her up feeding to sleep from birth, I should have been in for sleep training months ago (like as a newborn?!?) because now she's 6 months old I've got her in a bad habit so it'll be really hard for her and me to break it, that she'll need to be left to cry. She also asked me "so what have Yup actually done to try to fix this?" And when I mentioned jasper had had sleep issues she asked "how did you do this again?" Saying mum's who have sleep issues with their first say they'd never do that again.

    And lastly when she asked how often she feeds and I said shes difficult to feed during the day because she's too distracted but then she feeds all night she said that can't be it she weighs as much as a 12 month old that it's more like she's over fed. Then tells me I need to up her solids. (Errmmm she's either over weight or she needs more food. Can't be both ways!)

    So yeah.... chn cant help me. She just wanted to judge me for how I've parented for the last 6 months than offer support and guidance.

    But yeah just annoyed me, at least I know she's wrong. going to put together a complaint when I can get a chance on the lap top. (Ha so like 4 years. Lol)

    I usually see my gp but I went to the chn to get some advice on sleep.

    I was called today to book in for a day stay on Thursday as they'd had a cancellation so I have decided I will go... and I'll walk out if it's too intense.

    I think I'll tell them up front I'm completely 100% happy with how I have parented my daughter to date but I'm going because I'm desperate.
