Things people say … today’s installment

Babies shouldn’t wake up every 2 hours at night if they have enough opportunities to feed during the day

Of all the insensitive stupid things to say to a person whose baby didn’t sleep much for his first 5 months. Oh yes, I’ve literally been starving him in the day because I love those 2 hourly wakeups. The mind boggles. Just because you’ve been blessed with an easy baby, a baby who sleeps, who nurses in a pattern, it does not mean you have all the answers. And try telling a baby that they “should” or “shouldn’t” do anything. Sure they are going to listen.

Rant over.

    Don’t you want to just take people by the head and slap them silly?

    LOL. My husband and I always laugh at shows where the parents put a baby to sleep in a crib still awake, blissfully sigh as they turn off the light and go do their own thing for the evening. Those babies must be robots or aliens, right?

    Yes, those parents sure will be sad when the UFO comes back to collect their children!
