Thanks for your post. That's great that you've got yourself a copy of the BW books. Have you started reading the first one yet?? Let me know what you think.
I can see what you mean about the technique the Health Nurse recommended. Before I read BW, I was trying anything I could think of or heard about and nothing worked. I had tried the CC thing, but I just couldn't so it, as I always had this nagging thoughts telling me that I must be a bad mother if she was crying and what were others thinking of me etc.
Anyway, with BW, I did have to let her cry some, but after reading the book, I felt a lot more ok with it (they give you some really good info) and even though it was hard a couple times, I knew it was in her best interest. After you've read the whole book, make sure you really go over the chapter near the back where it talks about starting late, cause that'll help you getting started.
Well done for being strong enough to not have been putting her in your bed (maybe you haven't got that tired and desparate yet?? I hope not.) I know what you mean about the feeding them to sleep thing. I fell in to that also.
Once again, let me know how things go with Sophie. If I can help or you just want to talk about stuff, please feel free to let me know. My e-mail is [email protected]
if you want to mail me directly too.
Hope your day's going well. Thinking of you.
