    @Mamasupial might have some tips on coping when going back to work early?
    Yep, I returned to work when DD was 5 months. I never read any books though. I survived by being organised. Everything was ready the night before. I cooked big simple meals only a few times a week so we had left overs.

    As for my parenting, I go with attachment parenting. It did mean I was up cuddling my baby to sleep a lot but I wouldn't have coped with myself if I had tried sleep training etc. as had as it was, I enjoyed those extra cuddles that I miss out on in the day.

    Default Save our sleep

    SOS worked great for my two boys - started when they were both about 8 weeks. I found the routines helpful with pre-empting bubs needs (reading baby signs isn't always as easy as they say). My kids very rarely cry at sleep time or when hungry (I consider them to have been demand fed when young despite following a routine). Both slept through from around 4- 5 months. My youngest laughs himself to sleep most nights. May not be as easy to do routines with 2+ kids. As with anything use your common sense, take what resonates with you and there's nothing wrong with combining two or more different 'approaches' to meet your needs. Feel free to on me if you want advice and honest opinion (pros and cons) without judgement.
