I'm sick of moms being judged by how much their children sleep.
I'm sick of moms being pressured to let their children "cry it out."
I'm sick of moms feeling as though they have to "teach" their babies to sleep.
I'm sick of moms who are told they are "spoiling" their babies when they don't develop some sort of "sleep schedule."
Are we "training" children to sleep, or are showing them that we are capable of ignoring their cries for as long as it takes them to fall asleep from exhaustion?
Frankly, it scares me that some people are so de-sensitized and unattached to their babies that they can handle listening to a baby scream for an extended period of time. I'm sorry, but if you can stand to listen to your baby cry for thirty-plus minutes, there's something seriously wrong.
...and that's my opinion. Let's discuss.
This article from Mothering sums up how I feel more eloquently than I do.
