    So true!

    Our children's sleep doesn't define our parenting or who we are as parents any more than it defines them as children. My dd isn't "a poor sleeper" she's a bright, engaged, determined little girl who happens to prefer being awake!

    To all those mums out there living with broken sleep, but getting up each morning, loving your kids, and doing it all over again, you're doing a great job.

    I agree. Our kids should be treasured and valued for who they are and nurtured into being caring and decent adults. I refuse to title my kids as good or bad. They are perfect... my perfect gorgeous girls. All of whom are fast asleep whilst I sit thankfully on the couch.

    Possums educator was so proud of her that she self settled at nap time yesterday. I then admitted I cuddle her to sleep for day naps as we both enjoy it.

    Default Sleeping Like A Baby

    Great thread. I have a poor sleeper and have done it tough for 7.5mths..
    I've also done it tough with infertility so she's my angel from heaven and I won't ever intentionally make her conform. As PP have said she's a small person who is entirely dependant and trusts me 100%. For me to break that trust to get an extra few hours sleep would be against all the reasons I've had a child in the first place. It's selfless and the greatest gift you can give to your child. To be there for the smiles but also when they are up 5 times a night. My DD is growing so fast I could cry. She'll be a teenager before I know it and then off having her life. I can sleep when she moves out. This is just a season. I love her so much.

    If I think about how that SOS book and CIO are so popular and it makes me so upset. No wonder the worlds the way it is with nurturing becoming so unfashionable.

    The day I stopped trying to make my DD conform and stopped looking at the clock was the day I really enjoyed being a mum. She pulled an 11 hour stretch with only one wake up last week. All by herself. We'll get there!

    Hugs and high fives beautiful peeps.
    I think sometimes it feels like having a baby who self settles or one who responds to "the tweaking" is the optimal position and those who don't have that or aren't able to achieve that for whatever reason or just don't want to do it are less than.

    Well, you're not. You're not failing, you're not doing anything wrong and neither are your babies or children.

    My DS fell asleep with DH on the rocking chair tonight. Currently I am having cuddles with him on a mattress in the lounge room as I need the cuddles and I am watching some recorded shows.
