    Default Baby sleep: Nature and Nurture

    I like this article: It suggests baby's sleep is a combination of nature and nurture.

    Does this mean you will finally admit that some kids are just crappy sleepers due to nature and no amount of nature will 'tweak' it???

    That despite no medical issues etc sometimes there is nothing you can do?


    I follow RIE in my normal parenting so that article isn't news to me.

    Hi Rose nice to hear from you again.

    How about a deal: I will admit that if you will admit that in a reasonable number of cases parents have the capacity to help bubs sleep improve if they can find the right combination of things to tweak? That parents don't need to give up and automatically accept that their kids aren't capable of sleeping through.

    Deal?

    I've always said that some kids are on a spectrum. Some kids are amiable to change. Others aren't. Regardless of tweaking.

    I'm of the opinion that rather than stress out for months about fixing your kids sleep to the point where you actually lose the focus of enjoying your baby. That's probably why I'm a happier parent and more easy going than many others.

    Now I'm off to parent my kids by feeding my baby to sleep and sit with my 3.5yo whilst she drifts off.

    I've come to the conclusion that analysing and trying to change DD's sleep habits is more stressful than accepting them and dealing with limited sleep.

    Adios!

    You still can't admit it can you?

    Point is moot then.
