    Default dose your baby cry to sleep?

    Well, it is a long story. Due to financial reasons, we decided to rent out one spare room in our house. Our initial thought was to find someone who was a student and quite because we live near to the university. Then a couple contacted us, the husband was doing phd and the wife was an oversea doctor. Actually the husband was a doctor as well.They needed a place before finding a house We were excited because we were going to live with doctors and let them in. At first, everyhing went well, i asked her any health concerns i had and she gave advice. But the problem started to begin. They dont have kids. they might learned something from medical school but something i think you only know when u have kids. Every time when my baby tries to put something into his mouth, she would say he is hungry. I feed my baby regularly and even if i feed him a minute ago, he would still try to put something new into his mouth. Let alone he is teething, he want to bite something. I explained several times, but she cant stop saying " i think he is hungry".

    The other thing is about crying. My baby is a happy baby most of the time. but when it comes to sleep, he always cries while i am rocking, but most of the time settles in 15mins. She cant get it. Whenever he cries, i know she is going to ask why afterwards. once i was chaging my baby and he cried. She rushed into our bedroom asking what happened. My GOD! As if i was doing something bad to my son. Yesterday night, my baby was not quite well and cried a bit longer. This morning when i took my son to the living room, she was there and the first thing she asked was why baby cried yesterday. ok, explained again. then i gave a rusk which i made yesterday for my baby to bite, she immidiately asked wasnt it too oily. I didnt add any oil in there and besides he cant actually eat it, he just bites it! I had enough, I am a first time mom, may be i am not perfect but i am trying my best. I wake up for my baby almost hourly at night and spend the whole day being exhausted. I really dont need someone to judge me or show me around all the time. I talked to my husband and we asked them to move out as soon as possible.


    Well, now i just wanna know does your baby cry to sleep as well or just mine?

    DS fights it. I rock him to sleep and never let him cry alone. It takes anywhere from 15 minutes to 40 minutes if he's having a really bad day.

    I don't think the problem is you.. It's her.

    DD always cries when I put her to bed. But she'll fall asleep after 10-15 mins most nights. Any more I'll pick her back up and rock her to sleep. Usually takes 30 mins then... I dont think you're doing anything wrong Only you can be the best mummy for your son.

    Is that chick crazy? Babies cry!! They also put everything in their mouths.

    I don't have a baby yet, but I am expecting one that will cry sometimes. I don't think its preventable all the time. it's her not you. She sounds nuts!

    I always fed da to sleep but after having a bad cold a month or so ago and coughing heaps while feeding him ( lying down do didnt help the cough!!) I put him in his cot if he hasn't fallen asleep during the feed (prob 70% of the time). He always cries ( screams really) when I put him in his cot and leave but it generally only lasts a minute or two then he gabbles for a few minutes and goes to sleep. If he keeps crying I get him up and try again.

    Your lo is a baby, babies cry, babies put EVERYTHING in their mouths. Maybe the woman hasn't been around kids (no neices, nephews, little cousins etc). Maybe the cultural differences is an issue as well.

    oh god...
    its like living with a MIL.

    DD cried every night for 2 years!!! and woke every 2 hours and cried again.

    some nights she cried for 2 hours...always in my arms...rocking..
    I took her to hospital and got all the tests possible...but there was nothing wrong..it just is who she is.

    i think the DR needs to shhhhh up or go.
