  • It's not your baby.

  • She probably misses the baby & wants to spend time with her child. Nothing wrong with that. If that their routine, don't interfere with it.

  • None of your business. Though I wouldn't be waking a sleeping baby even if I did miss him/her.

  • The baby will be fine, stay out of it.

  • Why are you worried???? Does she wake the baby up to beat the crap out of it??

    Answer by Crafty26 at 7:09 AM on Oct. 5, 2013

  • Yes I agree that 10:30 is late, but if the baby is fine then I don't think you have any need to worry.

  • Some moms and babies have irregular routines and do fine. It really doesn't matter until they get to the school years so the child gets enough sleep. Better to stay out of it even though it is unconventional

  • The only "problem" I can foresee is that the child will become used to waking at that time, which will make bedtime a pain in later years.

    But, even if that happens, it still won't be your problem. It will be hers.

    We moms will do some odd things (not dangerous, just odd) to be able to spend time with our babies. This is her odd thing. Mentally walk away. It's not your business.

  • I don't think it's a wise choice, and I'm assuming this is her first baby. But she will learn in a couple years when she wants her child to sleep through the night and he/she is routinely waking up at 10:30-11 pm for playtime!

  • Babies are pretty adaptable. I wouldn't worry. School is still years away.
