Are we the only parents who are honest about their baby's sleeping patterns?
It seems every week we're looked at sympathetically by someone telling us how their baby slept for eight hours immediately from birth?
Sure, I bet there are babies that do sleep for longer than average, but I doubt that everyone we know with a baby is in that minority.
I also know that LC was was 5 weeks early and a such doesn't currently eat as much as other 'full term' babies of the same age as her.
But, I just don't care!
When we first got LC home she would go for an hour (hour and a half if we were lucky) between feeds as she just couldn't eat any more than her little tummy would take. Yes, it was hard work but we made it through those couple of weeks by working together and doing shifts.
Now she is 12 weeks we've just for up to four hours between feeds. Heaven to us but we're still sympathised with by the superior baby parents.
One person told V that their daughter slept through from 8 weeks only for her father to tell me that they still get up to her once a night - at 4 months old.
So, why lie about it? I get parents are proud of their kids but they are all babies at one point and they all have their good and bad points.
You don't need to lie about your babies development to impress me. You have to have grown up yourself to do that!
Rant over, sorry folks :)
