I need a comeback! My son just turned 4 months and he usually wakes up once per night around 1:30 to nurse and then again from anywhere from 4:30 to 5:30. I am tired during the day, but I didn't really think there was anything wrong with this pattern. I actually thought waking up basically once at night (the 2nd time just being a little too early in the morning for me) was pretty good. WELL, just last week I received some unsolicited advice from a good friend and a sister in law. Both said that he was old enough and weighed enough (he's 17 lbs) to sustain himself through the night. They said he was just waking up for comfort feeds and that not only was I probably giving him unneeded calories, but that I was setting up a bad habit. So now I'm feeling kind of insecure and wondering if they're right. Are they? And if they're not, is there a snappy little response I can give that will set them straight? Why is it that other people's opinions make me question myself so much????
