I am with you @lrwardrop on resisting the temptation. I am excited to get some new stockings. Now that DD can be added to the bunch, it means I can get new fun ones for all of us.
Do you know what type of sleep training method you want to use? I only trained DS1 and I used a mashup of information I read online. I never trained DS2 because he slept through the night early on, however I am really struggling with him now. The struggles with him make me want to do some sort of training with DD so that she doesn't fall into the same trap of not being able to put herself to sleep in the future.
lrwardrop said:@MollyandD for some reason I never really understood baby led weaning. Why not just give them baby food? Not trying to judge you but I actually am curious as to why.
@lrwardrop This board really is likely on it's final thread Glad to hear your LO got in a 10 hour stretch. That's great news for both you and him.
The time change a few weeks ago messed with DD's sleep but I think she is finally starting to get back on track. I am hoping this Friday is her final PT appointment, but I am not holding my breath. I know I should be thankful that I have a healthy baby, but I feel like DD is having to "prove" herself so much more as a preemie than DS1 had to. I know each kid is different but she was born almost a full week later than he was and required less interventions in the NICU. Yet, she has so many more appointments and follow ups than he did. The frustrating part is at every appointment they tell me she'd doing great but then still want to follow up.
@lrwardrop we got home yesterday at 540 and it was so dark I wanted to get everyone's bedtime routine started.
I don't know if it's hospital policy or if things have just really changed since DS1 was born 6 years ago, but I had to sign a form stating that I was aware the not following through with the DD's appointments could lead them notifying Child Services. All they do is monitor her and make sure she is not falling behind in her development.
