Hi ladies. I'm a momma to a 2.5 year old and an 11 month old. I'm so glad I found an AP chat group! Now, I just have a minor rant! Pleeeease!
Took my 11 month old to the pedi today where I was instructed to do rigorous sleep training. If a parent did this during the day, it would be considered child abuse. She instructed me to let him cry for thirty minute at a time. She told me he will scream and scream. She told me to go in the room and pat his back every thirty minutes but not pick him up. She said this could go on for the entire 8-10 hours he should be sleeping, but that I must not give in and give him what he wants. She told me he would eventually wear himself out and fl asleep.
