Re: Waiting for Baby to self-feed..need advice
Sorry, since the thread has veered into sleeping and doctor advice --
It's funny -- I sleep with my LO a portion of the night (she starts out in her big-girl bed) and the biggest problem I see with it is that she kicks me, hits me, head-butts me, etc., while sleeping. She head-butted me in the nose in her sleep the other night. Now that I'm pregnant, I have to sleep with a pillow in front of me (when I remember) because she kicks me in the stomach. Somehow she kicks me in the head, even when her head is on the pillow next to mine. It makes me laugh that doctors are so against it for the kids' sake as they get older -- I'm the one being abused, and she's perfectly comfy and happy! Not ready to give it up yet, though, because the benefits outweigh the pain.
