Ferber – Twilight New Moon
Weissbluth – Titanic
“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.”
Pantley encourages you to be by your baby, to go to their side, create happy memories and associations with sleep, and never leave them.
(I still can’t get that awful song out of my head…”There’s a possibility...” Ugh.)
She sees him on-and-off in her dreams, and has visions of that sparkly vampire throughout her day. It’s kinda like Edward was checking up on her in a way that only sparkly vampires can check up on you. But, you know that Edward is coming back – and, of course, he does – and, of course, they live happily ever after. Forever. As sparkly freakin’ vampires.
Oops, spoiler alert.
Ferber believes that you leave the baby, but you check up on them every so often. It’s important to make them feel like they have to be able to be alone – but not really BE alone.
She lets go?
The wench just…lets go?!
Yup, Jack floats away never to be seen again.
(Ok, quick aside, if Jack is the love of your life, my dear Rose, here’s an idea for the ages – make some room for your paramour on the door your hogging up! God, she’s so dumb. Even when she was old at the end of the movie and throws that diamond in the ocean – who the heck throws a diamond worth millions of dollars, nevermind a historical artifact of unparalleled importance, to the bottom of the freakin’ Atlantic? Ok, rant over. Sorry.)
But, basically this is Weissbluth’s premise –
Just how Rose ditches Jack and the diamond, you leave your baby in the bed at night, and no matter what sound comes out of that room in the mean time, you do not see that little kid until morning.
Too funny! I love your parallels to these classic movies, what an easy way to remember those sleep methods even for a sleep-deprived parent.
Haha thanks – laughing makes the lack of sleep easier on my soul 😉
