    So much yes! I got all sorts of (unsolicited) advice about how to get my now 8.5 month old sleeping through the night. So many people seem to think what worked for their kids will work for yours. Even our 2 kids required different things! Everyone is happy when baby sleeps, though 😉

      @Erika – So true! 🙂 Fewer things beat a sleeping baby when you’re sleep deprived! Thanks for sharing and please keep reading!

    All I want to say about this article is …..AMEN!! I feel like I just wrote this myself. My daughter is exactly like your son and I get unsolicited advice all the time! Thank you for writing this, it gave me more confidence as a mom!

    I too am struggling with all of the advice out there. I’m soooo confused by all of the books with different ideas and suggestions and advice from other people. this article and many of your other articles on your site are sitting really nicely with me.
    Your advice actually resonates with me. I know my little guy and what is right for him. I have to trust myself more. Because even though I am a first time mother I do know what is best for my spirited little man. Thanks Nicole:)

    This article and all of the above comments make me feel so much less uptight! Unless you’ve had a baby with a “difficult” temperament, you cannot understand how important routine and structure are! There are few things as important to me as keeping my daughter well rested and this often leads to comments like “you need to teach her to be flexible,” etc. What I need to teach her is that I am providing for her needs! And sleep is one of the biggest, most important needs. We are going on a vacation several time zones away for the holidays and I am terrified of what this is going to do to her sleep, both while away and when we return. This trip was planned way before my baby was born, but if I knew then what I know now, I’d rather stay home! Oh well – at least I have the tools to retrain her when we come back!

      @Stephanie Those types of comments drive me crazy! 😀 I hope the trip goes well!! Many babies do much better than you anticipate. Good luck!
