My mother kept trying to tell me and the world I had PND and said some babies just cry and my brother was like that so she always had him on the boob. Thank god i got that all under control. Her latest is that I am now too over protective. Today DS felt as if he had a temp so I went and bought a themometer to check. Mum said that was being too over protective. She drives me insane at times.

    I know.. Mothers can be the worst sometimes. My mum is very superstitious. When DD was crying a lot in the first few weeks, she actually told me, that she thinks that somebody jinxed DD. I didn't know what to say. I was like, "Umm, but mum, babies do cry, you know.."

    True story, lol

    Though I must say even though I never did it on purpose if I was walking and the pram happened to face the sun, with muslin wrap thrown over it, jasper sometimes did just fall asleep.

    I also did the brow to nose stroking thing - still do and it works for him even at 4 Years. or gently blowing air in his face.or very very gently tickling his eye lashes. Sometimes he just has to close his eyes so he can go to sleep and he just won't do it. But it's times where it literally takes 15 seconds. When he's at the point of "lights are on but nobody is home" lol.

    But anything like that would peeve katelyn right off. Lol.
