LIE. Tell them YES. And don't elaborate.
It gets them off your back.
its ok my3 yr old still wakes at night, heck even my husband is up and down half the night lol
Mine is 9 wks old and people ask me the same thing. I get the feeling they are just trying to make conversation, because when I answer "no" they seem to nod in agreement, as if they already knew the answer;)
Quoting midjet117:its ok my3 yr old still wakes at night, heck even my husband is up and down half the night lol
my son is almost 5 months old and I dont expect him to sleep through the night at least till he is 2 like his sister. Im not in a hurry.
OMG I know!!! I get that all the time too and have since dd was about that age. SHe's almost 7 months now. I still hate hearing that cause they EXPECT her to be sleeping through the night and of course I get this crap about "if you'd give her solid foods or give her some rice/cereals she'd sleep better at night". She sleeps fine. She wakes up 1 - 3 times a night to nurse and she goes right back to sleep. It's not bothering me. Not to the point I'd give her something cause of it.
I get that all the time with my 51/2 month old daughter- and with a smile I say not even a little bit! I feed on demand and she nurses all night (I keep that info to myself bc I don't need to hear any unwanted advice) I am fine with that...bf babies need to be close to their mommy and most people don't get that babies nurse for more than just food.
