    Sleep training is using a method to assist your baby to sleep longer and not to allow the baby to set the pace in terms of when it stretches out sleep, or sleeps through. So using techniques or methods to encourage more sleep which trains the baby to sleep longer. The controversy is that the baby doesn't get to that point in its own time.

    Hopefully that hasn't offended anyone. Just my definition of sleep training.
    ahhhh ok thanks.

    .
    ..... So different people can have different perceptions on the risk/benefit of something, and that can formulate how they judge something?
    I think I will sleep on that

    I would rather push a point than push others to the point they feel they can't say their point. Get my point?
    That you don't have a point? Got it.

    Point is: people can't claim on one hand to want to hear the other side of the story then open fire as soon as the other side opens their mouth, (sometimes to the point that people no longer feel comfortable posting or leave altogether).

    But the other side of the story were assumptions. Not based on any facts at all.

    I'm very much an optimist about people. My view of what we know is everyone is happy and the arrangement is working for them. You've obviously got the opposite view based on exactly the same scenario. Probably because I had a similar start to life as her daughter and ya know I'm ok.

    Point is there is a massive difference between "one side" saying their parenting choices are their parenting choices and whatever works for them is all that matters, and "the opposing side" saying she's immature, selfish, shouldn't have more children, has deeper issues that need to be looked at, that her child will possibly have psychological issues as a result of this specific choice and that they have made a bad parenting choice. One side is supportive and recognising what works for one family doesn't work for another and the other is jumping to massive conclusions based on one tiny snippet of information about their life.

    Both sides are based on assumptions and not fact.

    Read moxy's post. She saved me typing.

    You're correct but like I said I'm a glass half full kind of person. Clearly you're not and that's fine.
