So I'm trying to prevent it. It is so hard because we do what we think is best, or what we have to do to get through, and it's impossible to know if it's going to cause problems. Part of me would just like to let go and go with the flow but as I said I'm so clueless and worried I'll do the 'wrong' thing.
    Anyway I think I'm babbling on in this thread now, thanks for all of the perspectives I always like hearing all sides then finding my own way 😀
    I think we're all clueless in this parenting gig....it's part of what makes it so great, and it's also why I won't push any one kind of parenting style (now my kids are older ) because I've learned along the way that there is no right or wrong (not talking cases of neglect or child abuse) because we're all making it up as we go along...sometimes we win, sometimes we lose...but at the end of the day the biggest influental factor is the personality of the child, and we can't train them out of that no matter how hard we try

    So true. And her little personality is just coming through which my DH just described as being a firecracker it's so interesting hearing about other babies and other ways of parenting. I know I'm doing it differently to my friends with babies and that's ok with me. We and our babies are all different.
    I love hearing something new and it just clicks. I just finished reading baby-led weaning and it all just clicked and I'd never really heard of it before. And re night wakings when I read pinky McKay saying that sometimes as an adult you wake up thirsty or just wanting a cuddle and why should babies be any different. That just resonated with me so much.
    So thankful to have the opportunity to ask for advice here (got a couple of other burning issues to post about soon!)!

    Gosh, you sound exactly like me talking about my first bub who's now a lovely ten year old but gee whiz! I had to reassess all my previous expectations and go with her. I remember reading Pinky and just sobbing with relief!
    Wishing you and your gorgeous fire cracker all the very best xxx
