It’s not your business

It’s not any if your business how I raise my child. Even though I’ve said this to many people, I still get torn down for being a bad mother.

I let my baby cry it out when I would put her to bed. She was fed, changed, burped, etc. Everything that needed to be done was done and then she went to bed. I spoiled her for the first month by holding her and letting her sleep in my bed (I used a co-sleeper product, she wasn’t laying on my matress). I would go in every 5 minutes to let her know I was still there and she was fine. The first few night it took 3 hours, 1 feeding and a diaper change for her to go to bed. I set an alarm for every 4 hours to check on her through the night. If she wasn’t awake, I didn’t wake her for feeding. She would wake when she was ready to eat.

But guess what, while my baby is now sleeping from 10:30p.m. to 5:30a.m, you’re up at all hours of the night with yours. She may only be 4 months old, but at least I’m getting a solid 7 hours of sleep per night. Quit complaining about my parenting and worry about your own. Everyone has ways of managing how they parent and for me, this way worked. If it’s not your way, that’s fine. But respect mine.

    Fussing abit would be ok to me but I wouldn’t let my child scream for hours. there’s better ways to do this, even if it means laying on the floor next to the crib till baby is asleep and every night move a little further away. If baby is on breast/ formula then I would feed the baby if I haven’t already done so. All needs should be met if a baby is crying, its crying for a reason.even if its only for a comforting reassurance that you are near.

    If you are receiving a “baby” bonus it is all of our concerns.
    It takes a community to raise a child.
