I really love snails
I loved breastfeeding and all, but unless you want to lose your supply, better sleeping isn’t something you are going to get. Try frequent short naps.
My husband and I were frequently told we should kiss our sleep goodbye when I was pregnant with our son. The generic ‘sleep while you can!’ speech from everyone from relative to strangers in the store. They had us so worked up. That, coupled with our desire to breastfeed, had me setting an alarm for every 2 hours throughout the night so I would get up and feed my son so that my supply wouldn’t suffer. On about the third night, I was so tired that when my alarm went off, I sat up in bed to feed him, and fell asleep without putting him back in his bassinet or setting my next alarm. I awoke to the sun shining and a baby fast asleep, happily attached to my breast in the bed next to me. I was well rested and felt great. After that, I stopped worry about my supply and how often him ate. I fed him when he was hungry and kept him by my side though the night so that he had easy access to the breast and, yes, the supply of melatonin he needed to get from my breastmilk in order to stay asleep.
After that when ever someone tried to make snide comments about how the lack of sleep was treating me, I laughed in their face and said we were doing great. I had no idea what they were talking about. Of course there were still fussy nights, but all in all, once we got over our initial breastfeeding hurdles, sleepless nights was not a part of breastfeeding for me.
When our daughter was born, it was straight to our bed. Our sleepless nights came from reflux, sadly, but not breastfeeding. Point is breastfeeding is definitely not a guaranteed way to never have a good nights sleep again. It might work that way for some people, but not everyone. :)
Agreed. I breastfeed and Nat has been essentially sleeping through the night since two weeks. We coslept and I fed on demand from day one. He is one now and we still have great nights.
It’s gotten to the point where I go to sleep without a shirt on and depending on how I’m laying Alice will be able to latch herself on in her sleep. It barely wakes me up and if it does I’m asleep two seconds later. We have our fussy nights but for the most part I’m not suffering from sleep deprivation. Just slightly tired all the time.
Does anyone else find it odd that our society expects 14-year-old kids to know what jobs they will want for the rest of their lives, but doesn’t believe an adult woman when she says she doesn’t want to be a mother?
It’s 100% legal to take a photo or video up someone’s skirt without their knowledge in Massachusetts now.
My faith in humanity just shriveled up and died.
