What I want? I want a control baby. Like in scientific experiments, where they have a control? I want that. A baby that shares my baby's genetic makeup, general environment, temperament, etc, but that I can try a different tactic with, to see if the tactic I'm doing with the regular baby worked or was just the luck of the draw.
This is sounding like I want a twin. I do not. Twins are more work.
Let me clarify.
I want another baby that someone else is responsible for, but that I somehow can experiment on, and that will act like my baby. That Iwon't have to get up with in the middle of the night but that will act in exactly the same way as Lucy.

So. That's what I want.
I really don't think it's a lot to ask, do you?

Maybe it could come with an on/off switch, so you could just check it every once in a while.

How about a rewind button... Or something like Groundhog Day?
(By the way, I came via The Lactivist. I really appreciate your transparency in your comment there).

Thanks, Renata! And welcome! Those few minutes I spent typing one-handed while my daughter grabbed at the keyboard really paid off! :)
