  • No you're not wrong. A baby should never learn what it feels like to have his mother abandon him.

  • My 11 month old still wakes once every night. I go to her, nurse her and put her right back to bed. Takes me 15 minutes max...much better than listening to her cio.

    I always try and think of crying as them speaking. I'd never ignore my 4 year olds plea for help ( I'm really thirsty, I need to potty, I'm cold, etc.) in the middle of the night so why on earth would I ignore a non-verbal baby? JMO.
