Is This Her Fault?
right i've already typed this out in detail once and deleted it by accident so i'm not writing it all out again!! yesterday my MIL picked LO up and rocked him to sleep twice cuz she said he was 'crying and upset' (he wasn't upset - this is what he does when he's tired and he settles himself - we've never had to settle him since birth)...today though i've had to rock him to sleep everytime he's been tired, he's just cried and cried and won't take his dummy til i've eventually picked him up...is this her fault?! could he have just learnt that he'll get picked up if he cries for long enough from them 2 occasions?! i was about to kill her yesterday when i'd put him down for the night and i walk into my bedroom to see her cuddling him...i really will kill her if this is her fault arghhhhh how can i get him to go down without having to rock him? i've tried leaving him, putting his mobile on etc but nothing seems to work, he just cries with tears and everything until he wears himself out and eventually goes to sleep...i know he's tired so it's not cuz he isn't tired! grrrrr bloody MIL!!! x
