Baby Cry To Sleep
Some parents want different things from each other:
Eventually when Sam was 16 months old I put my foot down with daddy and took Sam into bed with us when he woke and was difficult to settle because I was a total wreck and couldn’t cope any more with waking every hour. ’
My husband would be having them in bed with us, but I won’t. He’s softer. He was the one who was very soft with the first one, but then we were both tired and cross. ’
Liz and Adrian, parents of Hester, five, Bruce, four, Joseph, three and Isobel, 14 months
Some, like Catherine, begin to share as a matter of expediency, and end up loving it:
I started off when Rosie was born saying that the one thing I would never do was sleep with her. In the end it was completely obvious that it was the only way I was going to get any sleep.
