Complaining I know ..... but it's just frustrating.
Do you ever get over hearing other people talk about their babies sleeping through the night at only a few weeks old?
I'm so happy that my daughter (age 2) is now starting to sleep fairly consistently through the night (with the aid of melatonin) but I know that there are still sleepless nights ahead. For the most part, I get enough sleep now and shouldn't be complaining. Most of the time it doesn't bother me when people talk about their little ones sleeping so well ...... its mainly when my family members do it. Especially my half sister. We didn't grow up together so we're not real close and so she doesn't know everything I've dealt with.
She recently had her 2nd child and has been going on and on about how good a sleeper he is ....... when she was so worried at the end of her pregnancy that this one might cause her problems because he was keeping her awake while still inside. I think that's what hurts the most. When she was still pregnant she talked about hearing stories of those "nightmare children" who never slept. I simply told her I guess I had one of those "nightmare children" but I thought it made me stronger. I never told her it hurt me to hear her say that. So now alot of what she says hurts.
