Owen had his six month well check this week, and one of the stupid things on the stupid sheet they gave me was "some children may still not be sleeping through the night." And my first thought was, "some"? Some? My impression, based on anecdotal evidence from, you know, you people, is that it should at least say "many." Actually, my impression is that it should be "most," but then I got to wondering whether you are all just sparing my feelings, and those of you with kids who all slept through the night at three months or four months or hell, fifteen months are just generally too polite to mention it.
(Which would be wise, because my standard response when someone tells me that their little Susie started sleeping twelve hours straight at six weeks is "bite me.")
So anyway, poll time! You know how much I love polls! Today's question is, when did your kids start consistently sleeping through the night? More than one kid? Vote more than one time. And you had better believe that if the result is significantly later than 6 months, I am going to march straight into the pediatrician's office and demand that they change their stupid, offensive, judgmental, outdated handouts. (Gee, are we sensing I am maybe too bitter about a piece of paper?)
(Hey, remind me later to tell you what the Hotty Pediatrician said to me at Owen's appointment. It was positively indecent! You know, in my head.)
