*** This is a trial thread.
It has come to light lately that sometimes parents of children who don't or cannot sleep through the night would like a place where they can discuss and support each other without others feeling as though they need to offer solutions to "fix the problem". The aim of this thread is to offer such a place.
It should be considered as a safe place free from debate or those trying to challenge the views of parents who have chosen to accept their children's nocturnal habits. If you truly believe that nearly all children are capable of sleeping through from a very early age with just a few tweaks, then this is not the thread for you. (Please do feel free to start your own thread if you feel you have information you believe would benefit parents )
I myself have a two year old who doesn't sleep through. I have never tried to fix it, because I found when my twins were small if I let go of the need to "control" we would all be much happier. Accepting what is, is what works for me and my family. (And venting a lot helps too!)
I will be keeping a close eye on this thread over the next few weeks and I remind posters once again this is a safe space where parents of children who don't sleep through (whatever your definition of that may be) can find support without feeling pressured or judged.
Thank you for your understanding that this thread may not be everyone's cup of tea, and rather than challenging ideas in here, we respectfully ask you not to post.
