I have to agree with nextcommercial and tzs, in particular. It sounds like you're fine with the situation so you don't necessarily need to change anything. BUT have you considered that your situation could change and it may not be as easy to wake every hour and such? For example, what if you get pregnant? During my first tri with my DS, I could not keep my eyes open once it hit 7 PM and I'd sleep for 12 hours! The exhaustion was horrible and I know that I would not be able to deal with a LO waking every hour and neither would DH. If, for whatever reason you could not do all the things you do now, then you have "created a monster" of a situation.

plummeting, you've taken what I've said and thrown it down a slippery slope. OP asked if she is creating a monster and I'm simply saying that if her situation changed even slightly then yes, she is "creating a monster". I never said anything about her getting cancer or some horrible disease, or whatever it is you are suggesting. (While those things are unlikely, they're not outside the realm of possibility and the solutions you suggested like daycare and formula aren't the end of the world. But that's beside the point.) Plenty of women have gotten pregnant when they weren't planning to (me included, while on birth control no less!) so my example of an unexpected thing happening wasn't as ridiculous as you are trying to make it seem.
|You also completely ignored when I said that
I was suggesting to OP that she should go on as she is, but look into some options and gain some knowledge about a different way of doing things. It's not b/c I think what she's doing is wrong, I actually think of her as quite a superwoman! I just want her to inform herself so that if she feels differently, she can feel comfortable with making changes.
