    I've had so many days like this lately. It really sucks. Feeling your pain.

    the worst thing you can do for your own mental wellbeing is compare yourself to fb pics. everyone's kids are terrors sometimes, they're just not putting photos up of it 😜
    Its hard not to compare. Whenever I see all these people in real life their babies are complete angels as well. And when i ask for advice on my son & his crap sleep they go 'oh i just pat mine twice & she/he falls right asleep'. So yeh, perfect babies........While i sit up holding my son for half the night while he sleeps cause we are back to this again

    I hope ds is happy growing up as an only child, cause at this rate he will be

    It's really hard when you have a bad sleeper. 2 out of my 3 have been/ are awful sleepers. My middle child was/is fantastic, so easy. After my easy sleeper I can see how people with easy sleepers can give out that kind of advice. But honestly, the only thing that has helped me is to accept my bad sleepers.i fully understand how frustrating it is to watch others who appear to have it so easy though.. Lots of hugs heartstringz

    This @heartstringz

    DSD is THE perfect sleeper, even now. We used to put her in bed and she would put herself to sleep.

    DSS? He started sleeping through the night without "help" (still needs reassurance) about 6 months ago- he is nearly 8.

    It is pure and utter luck, and do not let anyone tell you otherwise- we did exactly the same things for both kids... so it wasn't anything we did, and completely how they are.

    You are too kind. I'd have dumped the child on him as soon as it hit 6am.

    Oh hun. People forget how terrible their kids were/are. Dh pulled me up on this a few weeks ago. I was saying that dd1 was such a peaceful child compared to dd3 at 5-10 days old. He asked if I had dementia as dd1 pretty much screamed the first week of her life. I didnt recall any of that and the photos only showed a sleepy baby. So that was what my memory is based on.

    And believe me, there are many parents out there who are holding sleeping babies overnight. They just don't admit it. Unfortunately people associate 'parenting ability/skill' with sleep. So no one wants to admit they have bad sleepers or just normal kid behaviour.

    I will happily admit my kids have had shocker nights/days. But I'm still a freaking good mum.
