ok; if I put ds to bed it takes about an hour of nursing/lying-in-the-dark-pretending-I'm-asleep. I obviously don't mind nursing; I get the impression I'm doing something... but the 45 odd minutes of lying-in-the-dark-pretending-I'm-asleep I could really live without. I end up feeling pretty resentful; because the evening is the only me time I have (dh works long hours). But if dh put ds to bed, it takes him, I kid not, 10 minutes max. HOWEVER, ds spends the first 3 minutes (I timed it: ) crying and calling me, which really kills me because normally I go to him as soon as he calls. But I know dh rocks him to sleep; or rubs his back; it's not like he's totally CIO; I just feel bad about it.
So what's everybody's take on this? Ds traumatized for life; or do you think he'll survive with minimal psychological trauma?
