    what an arogant, rude, inconsiderate woman! Certainly not a personality i would waste my time on.

    pfftt to her and her 4 months experience....hope her bub has a massive sleep regression and doesn't sleep through till it is 4...that might teach her some compassion.

    After spending 5 hours in paed emergency last night and hearing babies scream in pain I honestly take my hat off to any parent that has a baby that is in agony as it is heart breaking. Of course good parenting would help make a content and secure baby but when it comes to medical issues not one person should judge, OP you should be given support and nothing less. Big hugs

    I had an easy baby. I am scared of having another, cos I KNOW it was just luck! I was lucky to have an easy baby. SOME of it, a very small part of it, may have been me.

    By that, I mean, there were parts of her, that were just a part of who she is, that I fostered and nurtured and therefore enhanced her "easiness," but mostly, it was just all her. Not me.

    YOur friend is being an arrogant fool. Just wait until she has another, and laugh. Or wait until her baby grows and is difficult. 4 months is nothing. Just wait. She'll learn. lol.

    Sometimes parenting skills play a role, sometimes they dont. Like pp's have said you can't help it if baby has reflux. But then again sometimes parents who had babies with sleep problems have done a handful of things that probably contributed to the sleep problems (use a dummy, feed/pat to sleep, no bedtime routine, don't encourage self settling etc).

    I disagree with that vicpark, I believe you can have 2 children exact same routine/parenting and still have a good and bad sleeper. I honestly think babies are born either a good or bad sleeper.

    Absolutely agree, I had a very easy baby and I have to say it had pretty much zilch to do with me, I made it up as I went along most days.

    Perhaps its a bit of both?. New parents dont automatically know everything about babies, every little trick to help them sleep, mistakes to avoid etc. I know I didn't. Parenting classes before bub is born are a load of crap! So assuming all parents automatically are doing the right things to help bubs sleep is ... Well no way in heck I believe that...

    Very true! There are things I will be doing different if we go back for number 2.

    Bide your time, she's only 4 months into her perfect parenting journey. I am sure she will fall off her perch sooner or later. Then you can ask her "why do you think you're struggling? You used to be such a great mother....."
