joys of motherhood: shit they don't tell you beforehand

Ok, the next person who tells me about creating "schedules" for babies is going to get smacked.


Remember this? Yeah, he was so small. And yes, he only fell asleep on his, which is in direct contradiction to most advice!

Ok, maybe not really... but you can bet your bottom dollar that I'm bitch slapping them in my head.

Why? Because I don't know what miracle babies they have, but mine wants none of it. He wants to eat when he wants to eat and moving that schedule around just ain't gonna happen easily. Sure, we're working on it. But honestly, after 2 months of poor sleeping, I'll take whatever nap times I can get people.

And my chunky monkey is content when he's well fed. And with his eating schedule.... he's definitely well fed.

I suppose some babies are perfect and follow the ideal schedule set forth by every god given gift of a baby whispering baby book author, but mine, thus far, has firmly established his contrariness towards being forced into any mould.

And honestly, I think that while that might frustrate me a little, it also makes me just a little proud that he's already keen to go his own way!
