It is such a conspiracy. It is horrible, especially that for me it was a sacrifice to spend so much so much time parenting my kids to sleep and it was not easy on so many levels yk and plus evey mom around me was CIO and had plenty of time to themselves.... but for all this I am so, so happy I never let them cry...
Thanks for this gaialice. I've been trying to figure this out and perhaps you have a better understanding of this... that is, what is the benefit of cio? It's clear, for instance, that major corps like nestle campaign aggressively to discourage women from bf, in order for the corps to make $$$$. So who is it that's making money off of cio? Here's the thing... I step back and REALLY look at this question and one possible reason comes to mind. Simply, in a capitalistic society, every individual is responsible for his/her fate. Therefore, if you're sleep deprived bc of your baby, then you're not at the top of your game which, in turn, might lead to loss of job, loss of promotions, etc... So then cio is seen as helping parents to sleep so that they can be on top of their game. But then I think... this makes absolutely NO sense! While there might be long stretches of all-nighters, I still think I get more sleep than the average cio family... am I wrong?
