Bringing up baby (or just putting it in the garden)?


Have you seen this show on Channel 4? It’s a disgrace. The poor parents having their lives dissected in front of the camera in those first precious weeks. I had to turn it off half way into the episode this week. I think I’m done. Not to mention the famed Claire Verity and her sleep through the night at 8 weeks methods. Sleep Is For the Weak is here to tell you THAT CAN’T BE RIGHT!

Melanie at Melanie’s Daily Blurb has written a brilliant piece on the show, the approaches, and the “£1000 a day don’t look at your baby or dare pick them up” nanny.

    amber claire verity angers me so much i can’t even bare to talk about her or her ‘methods’ to anyone. In my opinion her advice is basically that of benign neglect. How awful to think of those poor babies under her care that have learnt not to express emotion. Romanian orphanages springs to mind.

    I haven’t seen that show here (in the US) but I can’t imagine how many screwed up adults we’ll be making in the process… 😦

  3. I keep meaning to blog about this, its a horrible horrible show and so upsetting. It made my two year old upset (she actaully brought me her dolly over to cuddle, think she did’t like leaving her out) , I switched it off as felt it was tramatic for her

    oh your sweet daughter laura, bless her. I think the show was too traumatic for me let alone a 2 year old.
    and zosia, that is hilarious, can guarantee theImp would never do that though. He would yell before he put himself to sleep on a couch!
