I don't know what to say!!


This was on a business page...it was a sleep training business and I nearly died, admin didn't even flag it!!

Tammy has a question - My 4 month old wakes every 1hour overnight , we previously went to dalwood and no success, they said he will just grow out of it ? Does anyone else have this problem? Thanks

User1: Drug the child....I went through hell for almost a year..then three nights of phenergan and "broke the sleep pattern". Probably saved a life.....

User 2: Yup he will change his timing gaps by himself. Start giving him cerelac before sleeping. When he will sleep with full tummy he will not wake up so quick.


Every hour...yep totally get why you'd be reaching for help there...but is drugging really the answer?? And the whole cereal in the bottle thing...that's not great help...

AANd before you all start with "oh don't be judgy, blah blah" Some things ARE SIMPLY NOT OK. Drugging your baby IS NOT OK!!! SO YES I think that is disgusting and I judge that mother who recommended that AND the fact that Admin did NOTHING!!!

I agree that I'd be going a bit nutty with waking every hour but the solution is not drugs or early weaning. It is very sad that people can't see past their own desires to keep their baby healthy

Well after going for 10 months of hourly wakings, it did cross my mind to drug Jacob...or me, or give him a shot of whiskey...anything really....... bit obviously I didn't! I certainly wouldn't recommend it!

It's obviously not right, but I also don't think it would work! I mean, unless you wanted to drug the kid every night and that just doesn't seem ethical to me Can you report the company to the better business bureau or something like that in your area? Seems a bit like dangerous advice.

ETA: I know several sleep coaches and none of them would even dream of suggesting this. We don't really have sleep schools here in the US as far as I know.

A 4 month old waking every hour is pretty normal. Drugging a baby and cereal are not good things. Cereal should never ever be put into a bottle (even if your baby has reflux and Doctor suggests it, its a chocking hazard) adn 4 month olds shouldn't be eating anything other than breastmilk or formula (I know many Doctors say it's safe, but real evidence shows it's not). While I won't say they shouldn't "breed", I will say people who still believe that stuff after a lot of research has been put our are simply stupid.

I've joked about giving my child Nyquil but didn't realize there were people who actually did it....and phenergan of all things. I've taken it for nausea a few times and it knocked me out for 12 hours straight! There is no way the mother could correctly judge the dose for an infant that small, it would be way too easy to give too much. That isn't even on the same level as giving your child cereal before bed. Drugging your child is child abuse.

This is still done a lot around me, even my own parents and other halfs had us with cereal and even alcohol in us. I cant get my head around it either. Causes more problems in the long run.

In rural southern US in the 80s, it was quite common to give a baby a shot of Rock N Rye-- whiskey and rock candy mixture-, plain whiskey, or codeine to get baby to sleep. I don't think many people actually do it anymore, but you'll hear some crazy shit if you talk to old southern grandmas.

Sounds delicious to me But of course I'd never, ever give that to a baby.

My parents used to put whiskey on my gums when I was teething and apparently it was one of my first words.
