I'm not unhappy with what I said but I just dumped it on them and then had to leave. I should have asked more questions and had more of a dialogue.
I think that is excellent! And the suggestion to bring it up with their pediatrician is perfect. Even though some pediatricians are ok with sleep training, I think most would consider 12 straight hours without feeding to be problematic.
