Success after IF

I'm a terrible mom!

I'm ashamed to say this, but there have been so many times (as in, way way way too many) that after I put M down for his nap, I forgot to turn on the monitor (the parents' unit) in the living room.  I'd be cooking or surfing the net or whatever, and then 15 minutes later (sometimes more) I'll be like, "I wonder why it's so quiet?"  Then DOH! moment sets in and I quickly turn on the unit.  

I know it's really NBD; ours is an audio monitor, and if M were going to cry, I would have heard him regardless of the monitor was on or not.  But still, I always feel guilty when I forget!

Re: I'm a terrible mom!

  • Now that E actually sleeps on occasion, I do this too! I'm so used to having the monitor in hand bc she cried every half hour to an hour, now that she sleeps I forget to worry about her!

  • Sometimes when I put Evie down for tummy time she falls asleep, then I get occupied with other things and forget to check on her. It's normal! I have forgotten to put her Snuza on a few times, then when she sleeps in late I will get so scared and rush int

  • PB, when I saw the title of your post I was thinking something along the lines of "I put my child in a pet crate for a nap" or "I let SILs cat babysit" or "I change baby's diaper once a day". 

    Nope, you are not a bad mom.

  • If that is bad, then I am truly awful - we haven't even broken out the parent set of DD's Angelcare monitor. She is still in our room and only rarely naps there, but will go to bed before I do.  Our house is small - I will hear her if she gets really
