Day 17 → A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.

I don’t often read self-help books. I’ve tried reading self-help books and they bore me to DEATH, but recently an old aquaintance on Facebook probably got sick of my “I’m tiiiired” status updates and he mailed me the ‘Sleep Sense’ book.

It is a very short book and it changed my views on letting Babyice wake up and not letting him cry. Rudi doesn’t believe that he is old enough to manipulate us, but I do. Babyice does sleep through some nights, so it is evident that he doesn’t require a feed at night, so why then do we give him one? Because he demands it.

I want to sleep train him. We went to a Halloween party not so long ago and we had somehow forgotten his dummy at home. After about 30 minutes of hassle Rudi got him to sleep without it. We’re going to have to take his dummy away from him and it’s going to be hard, but I really want to do this, not only for ourselves, but for Babyice as well.
