I love this thread! This is exactly how I feel. I've learned the hard way not to stress over my baby waking through the night. I feel that I've lost precious time with my first born trying to teach him to self-settle, which he only learned when he was ready and I didn't have to do a thing. Second time around, I'm still getting broken sleep, but thoroughly enjoying all the cuddles and quiet time I get with my baby. I'm so content with how I'm managing things this time around that when people ask about my baby's sleep, I respond that he is a good sleeper and I mean it. Simply because I'm not fussed that he doesn't sleep through yet. I know he will eventually and I'm not going to lose my mind for it to happen sooner than when it's meant to happen.
