    I should also add that DS was also a catnapper during the day so I'd been through all the 'try patting them back to sleep' etc suggestions and it never worked. All it achieved was making me more anxious. I used to complain that he only napped for 40 minutes at a time, then I had DD and it was 20 minutes tops. As she was fed to sleep that was usually enough time to:
    1. Realise she is fully asleep and I might be able to sneak away
    2. Put the kettle on to make a cup of tea
    3. Chuck a load of washing in the machine or put a few things away in the dishwasher
    4. Make the tea

    Oh! Too late, she's woken up. No time to actually drink the tea, time to feed her again.

    There was one freak day where she slept for the entire day pretty much, and she wasn't sick either. 'twas bliss.

In my case, bed sharing and sleeping with my boobs out so he could have an all night buffet as well as being woken 8-10 times a night whenever he latched on were all things that I wasn't happy about and only did so he was happy. But you know what? Once I went to sleep school and he got over the first few nights of not being fed constantly and being in my bed, he was even happier because he was getting a full nights sleep. This is why I will never put my child's need before my own again if it means I'm sacrificing my happiness in the process.
    Don't get me wrong, I was this close >< to sleep school. But I ummed and arred about it and thought, what are they going to do?

    I agree to an extent. I learned after having DD I needed to remember me sometimes. But.... for many letting their kids ball is more than just not their parenting style, it goes against every fiber of our being. It would like telling some against circ to circ their son, or a bfer to put their baby on the bottle from the second of birth.

    I do think there is a fine line between being a martyr and not fulfilling parental responsibilities - I'm not saying those use SOS are the latter, I'm just saying that it can be a bit of a tight rope to walk and some empathy could go a long way.

    We'll have to wait & see how the 4 month sleep regression goes.

    Yes I agree with what you're saying. That's why it's important to find a solution that sits well with you but also works towards fixing the situation resulting in happiness for both mum and bub not just baby. In saying that, sometimes a bit of tough love is needed and it was the hardest week of my life at sleep school but the end result has far outweighed those awful few days.
