    Fwiw, my ds never put his hand in his mouth. So it wasn't a terribly useful sign for me!

    before having a baby I used to frown on routines and think I would always go with the baby and that's what I did with my first. I fed to sleep, I rocked, I fed on demand (and believe me it it was CONSTANT), I baby wore, I co slept anything she needed I was there and I did it but I never felt I knew her everyone would constantly ask me is she tired or does that mean she wants this or that. I wanted to scream I don't know! I don't know my baby! It wasn't until I implemented a routine (and yes it was SOS ) that I felt calm and like I knew what she wanted and needed and I could just be her mum and enjoy her! I guess that's just me though. I would happily co sleep with her it just doesn't work for us..


    My. Kids being on routines don't mean get less cuddles, it doesn't mean they don't get EVERYTHInG they need whenever they need it just because they sleep 7-7.

    Default Not every child will sleep

    I have an issue with your "%".
    As mentioned in a previous post they were plucked

    You're a pretty easy going go-with-the flow person (I don't mean that in a negative way). I sort of admire the way that you have a big day nap with your kids and do family stuff late in the evening. Is it possible that you have gravitated towards friends with similar parenting philosophies and lifestyles and that there is a possible connection between that and the kids sleep habits?

    DD has had her hands in her mouth all afternoon and I keep pulling them out and showing my boob in there instead thinking 'how can she still be hungry!'

    Hahaha. I think my ds would make fists when tired. And get super hyperactive. He is still the same now. Hyper and bitey.

    I clearly remember thinking that my first son slept well because of my amazing skill as a parent and my flawless routine. Hahahaha. The universe decided to give me a big fu with my second and third child and they both had me crashing back to earth. Some kids are naturally bad sleepers no matter what you do - even if you try and use the same awesome routine with each child.

    I should disclose that I am unwilling to leave my child to cry themselves to sleep. I know that it might solve a problem or two for me if I were to be comfortable doing this but I'm not willing to and thus I am happy to wear that bad sleepers for the time being. I don't believe that to be a reasonable solution.
