There’s No Such Thing As A Parenting Pro

I posted the following yesterday in my 4th Trimester group (ladies I was pg with):

Am I the only one who has to work to get their baby to sleep? I see all these pics of y’all’s babies zonked out on your chests or backs and that would never happen here.

I either have to wear her and spend the whole time bouncing, patting and shhh’ing or swaddle her and put her in the swing and even then sometimes I have to sit and shh in addition to the white noise and music playing. Am I doing something wrong?

When I take her out of the swing when we go to bed, I nurse her and lay her swaddled between us and she sleeps fine all night long.

I’m not really complaining, it could be so much worse, just thinking out loud I guess..

Then I commented to Mr. Fox that I wish the swing would lay flat, that I think she wants to be on her side in it. He’s all, “lay her in the bed.” But I thought she needed the motion. So when I put her in her swing this morning and she fussed I thought, “what the heck” and laid her in the bed. SHE WENT TO SLEEP! So, yeah, 4 kids later and I still struggle to figure out what she needs! LOL

Can’t post without a pic, right?
