Especially when it comes to sleep and especially when you accidentally get talking to THAT MUM from your NCT/baby massage/antenatal class or baby group.
You know the one……her baby slept through the night at 6/7/8 weeks of age.

I co-slept with my daughter when she was newborn, i did it because she wasn't always keen to settle in her Moses basket at first and i was exhausted...I’m glad I did it and I’d do it again ( if i had another baby) I’m convinced its why she was such a good sleeper and sleeping through by 8 weeks ( although that wasn’t my intention.)
