newborn sleepingIt's hard being a new mom (or even an experienced mom to a new baby) and sometimes we do things we know we shouldn't, despite what all the experts say. But this is a safe place to share your secrets (PM me)—we'll never tell.

This Week's Secret:

My newborn can sleep through the night but I was told not to let him by some people. I was told to make him wake up to eat every 2-3 hours. He is hard to wake up and I'm tired, so I like to let him sleep. — anonymous
