Rented life asks:
What to tell pedi who says LO needs more sleep and shouldn’t wake got 10 hrs. Zie wakes after 6, nurses, sleeps again. Some nights 8-9 hr total sometimes 10 but never in one shot
“Can I get my kid’s records transferred to my new pedi?”
I wish. Sadly there aren’t many options where we live. The other place our friend’s brother has a huge lawsuit on bc they put rods in his back that had known bacteria problems…I generally don’t go to the dr because of these stupid things. But with the kid, I want the immunizations, etc.
In that case, we recommend the say nothing and continue doing as you damn well please method. The human race wouldn’t have survived if kids couldn’t figure out how to get the right amount of sleep. Seriously. (Exception for actual sleep disorders. A baby sleeping for 6 hours and waking up when hungry is not a sleep disorder.)
