I love how you can tell they went off template at the end there, that makes it even better!!

I want that.

It’s now hanging on the nursery door. It’s pretty great.

Is that an invitation for him to come and get it?

Pro Tip: After having 2 kids within a year and a half I think I found a better measure when it comes to sleep. I feel like its better to wake the baby up every 3 to4 hours and change /feed them vs them waking you up. Its a lot easier on the body and if you and the other parent take turns you still get a good night sleep

Also don’t have a perfectly quiet household whilst they sleep. Let them get used to noise while they are sleeping and it is so much easier.

Amen! Don't tiptoe around them from the start. Put some music in their room from day 1, to help make it less jarring if something in another room goes boom, or the doorbell rings, or her sister throws a tantrum (as 2 year olds do)... We figure it's better to rely on background music rather than silence. No matter where we are, we can usually scrounge up a device to play some tunes, but guaranteeing silence is way harder.

Also just skip the kids altogether and get a perfect 8 hours every night

Booyah

I wish I had children just so people would believe me when I tell them that.

The struggle is real my friend. Two kids here and both the wife and I decided early on to forgo the, "shhh the baby is sleeping crap". We wouldn't blast music but we have at a reasonable volume and we would vacuum and go a out our day and both kids learned to sleep through anything. Our friends just couldn't understand it and then when they had kids they still didn't get it.

Although it's pretty rough on the baby, but fuck that kid, amirite?

You've got some cool neighbors. I feel like stitching is an underrated skill. Same with sewing

Wake you and I'll cut the baby

I need this picture.

Baby wakes itself...well rules are rules.

I have one year old twins. Totally agree. I will cut a mother fucker.

Mom of 5 here, my youngest two kids are a set of 3 yr old twins.

I forgot what I was going to say.

Yeah.

I'm going to be a grandparent (again) and I'd like to get one of these for the kids. Can you let me know where I can get one?

Congratulations! Someone posted a link to the thingy for it in the comments :)

I want one for when my little one makes an appearance

Ah. They are wise in the ways of parenting.

Please post the pattern! Pretty please

Line spacing and centering are all jacked up.

Bah babies are stupid. It was your bad planning that led you to have an easily awoken monster in your house.

Actually, she was my second of two planned children, so, y'know...

Worth it.

Try the Ferber method. Worked wonders on ours.

Thought 6 months, sorry. Don't try to sleep train your baby at 6 weeks, haha.
