I need sleep!!!
I’m a nightmare when I’m tired (ask anyone in my family) and now Baby M is 6 months old I need to get some sleep. It’s been 6 months of sleep deprivation!
On Wednesday night he slept from 10pm to 5.15am. I thought we’d finally turned a corner, I was hopeful we would start getting longer between him getting up. I could cope with 6-7 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Unfortunately I didn’t get the enjoy the wonderfulness of Wednesday night as I was awake between 2.15am & 4.30am as I’d been to work & had a big meeting so my brain was in overdrive, so you can imagine I wasn’t too pleased with myself
Thursday night he slept from 9.30pm until 1am, then he was awake again at 3am then again at 4.30am then again at 5.40am. I was a bit upset but battled on
Friday night we did EXACTLY THE SAME as Wednesday night, he slept from 10.30pm until 3am. He was inconsolable so he had a bottle & he polished the 7oz off. We were thinking he’d sleep until 6-7am but no, he was awake at 520am
I could cry!
We’re both exhausted!
Mini M is up about 6am EVERY DAY too, why are we raising early risers?!? Why can’t they love their beds & sleep like mummy??
We have a plan where I stay in bed then Mr M goes back to bed once I’m up but we can’t do that when working. I’m still on maternity leave at the moment but I go back to work soon & I’ve got a new job so I am worried about being completely exhausted!
I can’t remember how old Mini M was when he slept through. I’m hoping that when Baby M starts nursery he will be shattered so he will sleep better at night
I also feel like a terrible mum wishing my child to sleep for selfish reasons
We must soldier on!!
