Night Nurse?

I can't decide how I feel about this article. It's about a mom who chose to hire a night time nanny with her second baby.

I mean, I get it. Babies are hard. But I still feel iffy about it. This mom doesn't have to wake up at all during the night and spends a vacation away while the nanny sleep trains the baby. Bliss!

I must feel this way because I'm a bit jealous. Kudos to this mom who is aware of the strains on her relationship and personal well-being that her motherhood situation causes, and then solves the situation. And then stands up to other mom's judgement about her solution.

  1. Hmmm...don't know what to think about this. Had 3 months of sleepless nights when Andy was born...but Pinky was just a great help---getting up and rocking and rocking away! Never complained- a real character building exercise for us all. (We GREW UP!)
