Oh my bad, I think I'm one of those 'comparing' mums! NOt really, but I do find myself secretly hoping friends won't have babies as big as mine (9lb) or labours as long (41 hrs, thats kinda hard to beat). I don't try to force her to be better than anyone else (I have friends like this and their children have all sorts of emotional issues from being pressured so I have let my litle girl do her own thing, she is quite developed for her age, she walked at 10 mths and at 11 mths already has 10 teeth.
I don't know why I want her to be the biggest and the best, Iguess I'm just so proud of this perfect human being that I have created. BUt I recognise how important it is to let herself set the pace for her development.
Anyway, just wanted to provide a different perspectiv.
