OK so here's an interesting situation.
You all know how I've been having constant struggles with Aveena, well at my wits end I went and put her on a schedule. Actually I read the baby whisperer and though I don't agree with and do everything she suggests - I took out of it what I wanted and what seemed right for me and....
She sleeps about 45mins to 1 1/2 hrs for her naps and is almost through the night. She is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much happier I can't descripe it, it's the best thing I ever did.
And I wasn't going to say anything here, but a couple of events recently have led me to cause
1. I believe the baby-led parenting is doing what makes the child happiest, in Aveena's case being on a schedule
2. I was reading creative parenting by sears, and he suggests putting 'fussy' babies on a schedule
Of course it's flexible, if she needs to feed earlier then she does, but it means I only feed her when she's hungry, not if she's upset (unless I can't calm her any other way, then I do no problem)
So good news from here, just thought I'd pass it on
