“It’s time she slept in her own room,” declares Daddy.
“Nooo!” wails Mummy. “She’s not ready! She’s too little! The NCT lady said 6 months! She hates the cot, she cries when you put her in it!”. But Daddy points out she is touching both ends of the Moses basket and we will have to cut holes for her feet soon.
Rebel Baby sleeps soundly all night and wakes up cooing and smiling. For although she has ALWAYS hated the cot before, she could not pass up this excellent opportunity to Prove Mummy Wrong.
