Sleep Lectures

NO, our baby is not the best sleeper in the world.

THANKS, I don't want to read any more sleep books.

I don't want to be lectured or made to feel bad or told, in a roundabout way, that I am doing something wrong because my baby wakes up a lot.

All this talk about "self settling" can sometimes make sense to me, but when I start to really think about it, and apply it to a baby, it makes less sense. Isn't "self settle" just a euphemism for "scream in the crib"? What's the difference between crying it out and self settling? Adults making themselves feel better?

Oh, I don't know.

I do know, however, that sleep deprived people do not take kindly to repeated advice.
