Neighbors left this on the door

Trying to get your baby to sleep through the night is one of the most challenging aspects of parenthood.

Knowing this, a mum wrote her neighbors a letter warning them about what was to come.

The exhausted couple left a note on each of their neighbours’ doors explaining that they’d started sleeping training their baby and were attempting the “cry-it-out” method.

In the letter the “tired and sorry” mum apologized in advance for the crying everyone would likely hear, even inviting them to pop in for milk, sugar, egg or tequila if they should need it.

It read: “Apartment 207 here. I regret to inform you that we have begun sleep training our son.

“After many sleepless nights thanks to the dreaded 4-month sleep regression, we have decided it is time to start the cry-it-out method.

“If you hear the cries please pray for me and know I am also crying and going insane.

“I’m very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you, let’s hope it doesn’t last long.”

The mum explained that they were planning on testing it for four days and then if it didn’t work, they were going to have a break for a week or two and try again.

They added: “Please know I am not neglecting him, but I will let him try to self-soothe for 45-60 minutes at a time during this period.

“I will be in the room every 5-10 minutes to reassure him he is not alone and is okay.

“If you start to feel hatred towards us just give us a friendly knock on the door and I will bring you a shot of tequila to mend our neighbor-ship.

“It’s cheap tequila but it will calm your nerves, it’s been tested and proven to work by yours truly.

“If you hear the cries please pray for me and know I am also crying and going insane.

Instead of crying for you when they wake in the night, they’ll learn to soothe themselves back to sleep.

It says: “Crying isn’t the goal of this sleep training method, but advocates say it’s often an inevitable side effect as your baby adjusts to sleeping on his own.

“They say the short-term pain of a few tears is far outweighed by the long-term advantages: A child who goes to sleep easily and happily on his own, and parents who can count on a good night’s rest.”
