I have told you before that I was the worst mother and some of the things I did or didn't do when my kids were little.....

I mean if you went by what they were saying at the time....

Bathe baby every day.....I didn't.....

Wake them up to change a wet diaper....I didn't....(I slept through it)

Wake them to feed them every 4 hours no matter what.....I didn't.

Keep the babies room quiet and dark.......I didn't.....I actually had a radio in the babies room so they listed to news and country music all the time night and day.....

Don't let baby stand before they were x

Like most things, there is more than one way to "get things done".
Interesting reading but doubtful there are any of us who did everything according to the "list". :smileywink:
My own Mom was pretty much my guide.

Interesting findings - I don't have the guilties particularly, although I was a lousy mother. I was 19 when I had my first, no relations or friends avaiable, and I had never even seen a young baby before. Had my Dr Spock LOL, and a very nervous, but very competent DH.
