I was so confused when I read this post at first until I realized it was an oldie - but definitely a goodie! :)

At any rate - this is a message that needs to be shared!

It's sad that our expectations are so high for infants...I think many people honestly don't realize that the way you are describing it is how it is meant to be - as you say, the message of sttn is so prevalent everywhere you look.

I know this, and it still bothers me sometimes to read (from a mama who knows it's supposed to be this way) that their little one didn't sleep through the night until 2 - I think, really? That long?

But then I really think about it and I have to be happy that my daughter still wakes to eat - in spite of the tiredness on my part, she's doing what she's supposed to be doing - what is best for her. And in the end I know this time will be SO short when I look back on it...

So yeah, kind of rambling...but just want to thank you for this post - it's just not something you hear very often!

Genius! While I completely would LOVE to sleep through the night (or at least 4 hour stretches at a go), I find great comfort in remembering that this night waking is not only normal but even (to some at least) welcomed. that I can chose to look at this as a hardship or as a blessing, a time to treasure and rejoice in. Thank you for reminding me to re-frame this in my mind, if... when I start to begrude my own lack of slumber.

I feel your pain. I have such mixed feelings about this. I wouldn't mind AT ALL if he was just waking up to nurse several times a night, and I am desperate to keep my "monthly visitor" away for a few more months...but some nights are very hard because he wakes up and can't get back to sleep.

But that's not the same as just nursing a couple times a night. I feel bittersweet when he slowly but surely can make it longer and longer during the day without a nursing, as well...it's just one more step away from babyhood. Beautiful and scary!

Anyway. Just wanted to let you know you're not alone. =)
