I just joined the bub hub to find some consolation for all the wrong things I do with my baby unintentionally and then find out that those things were so wrong..
Currently I just got to know that my nine month old should know how to sleep settle himself, also sleep through the night without breastfeed in between.
He used to wake up atleast 4 times in night.. and i thought he was just hungry. Today my nurse told me that no that's wrong and all he wants is a cuddle and comfort.
He lost his appetite and I kept blaming his teething but the nurse told me thats only because he fills his tummy up during the night with all the milk and so he doesn't prefer taking solids during the day.
I made myself make all his solid meals at home and even then he developed a sweet tooth and now refuses potatoes, avocados and anything that is plain in taste. I feel so guilty..
I just feel terrible. Like a failure.
Nurse told me to be strict and tell your baby who is the boss now.. and i need courage and stamina to do so.
If anyone here is in the same boat then please lets be a team and help each other out.
