As the mom of three boys, I consider myself a fairly experienced mother. I do have a number of years under my belt so to speak. But there was a time when I was a new mother. When my oldest was little, everything was new. I distinctly remember a number of moments when my inexperience got that best of me. My now matured self has a good eye roll remembering those early years.
For instance I remember naively believing that by four months my baby ought to be sleeping through the night. Surely, when he was crying in the middle of the night I shouldn’t nurse him. He must learn that nighttime was not feeding time. For a number of nights, I steadfastidly cradled my crying baby to my bosom and tried in vain to get him to go to sleep. HE WAS NOT HAVING ANY OF IT. The poor kid! He just wanted to eat! And there I was holding him right where he wanted to be, without any gratification. After several nights of an extreme lack of sleep, I finally gave in and just let him eat when he cried. I felt like a failure. Surely, he ought to be sleeping through the night by now!
By the time my second son entered our lives, I was much more confident. I knew he would sleep through the night eventually. I knew that if he wanted to eat, I was going to feed him- no matter what time it was. As a much more confident mom, I thrived with co-sleeping and so did my son. And of course by the time my third son came around, I was almost an expert:)
