Re: Losing BF Support, small baby, not sleeping long

My son is 10 months and nurses round the clock still. The term "good sleeper" really irks me. My son is a good sleeper! He barely wakes up and rolls over to me and goes back to sleep. that to me is a good sleeper. We just need to adjust our expectations of our babies. 12 hours a night seems to be what all the books say babies need now. I don' t know where they got that number from but it's the magic number everyone uses. It's made up and not all kids have read the books! your baby is just fine, just needs mommy and is little. that's it. keep up the good work and tell everyone to mind their own business.
