I've been noticing things that I do with elianna that I didn't do with Malachi. Such as nursing her to sleep or rocking her to sleep. I used to be a big fan of sleep training. But now I'm not so sure. Lately I've been feeling guilty that I used to let Malachi cry himself to sleep. And I've been rocking him to sleep the last few days/nights for naps and bedtime. I feel like I missed out on a lot of the baby stuff he did because I was so worried about getting him to sleep through the night. Or getting him to do other things. Now I realize how fast it goes and how I want to cherish every little moment we have together since he will be 2 in October. Before I know it he will be 10, then 18, then gone and married or doing whatever God has in store for him. And with Elianna I have been doing everything I can to comfort her when she's upset and I nurse her to sleep and I rock her. I used to think it would create bad sleep habits, but I can't imagine letting her cry.
Have any of you other moms gone through this with a second or third child?
