    Nobody has perfect kids. I just celebrate the good stuff and drink wine to forget the days from hell.
    this! what you see on fb is carefully filtered and you really only ever see people's "best side". nobody is posting pics of the nights they're drying no sleep, covered in poo and/or vomit or have dark under eye circles so heavy they could pass for a panda.

    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 😜

    I said the exact same thing to DH yesterday! I'm burnt out from organising meals for everyone and someone knocking it back

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

    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

    And as per usual dh keeps cancelling his alarm while im sitting here holding a sleeping ds who ive been up with since 2am. Now i can hear him snoring.....so much for getting up at 6 & helping. When i can finally get my muscles to work again maybe ill get up & dump ds on dh's head..........

    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.
