sleep or lack thereof

long time between drinks on this here blog.....

battling booby problems and sleep problems but somehow muddling our way through!

last night we had a home visit from someone to help us sort out some of Lottie Pearl's sleeping difficulties and my was it tough. the night started off well - her first night sleeping with no dummy or wrap! but after around 3am it just disintegrated. so hard not to feel disheartened. that silly thought "are we the ones who have that baby who can't be tamed?"

lottie pearl has an amazingly fierce and expressive heart. she's so fun to be around. she really is. i'm so happy we can have such beautiful awake time. we just need to work on the sleep time! we'll get there baby girl!

so after a horror night and after a big LOOOOOOONG play (even though she was ready to go back to sleep 30 mins after she woke) she fell into bed, no dummy, no wrap, just my big beautiful 5 month old. no protest. nothing. 1 1/2 hours later? she's still sleeping :) first time ever she has slept for that long. EVER!

thankyou lottie pearl. you are my wonder girl xxx

  1. Hallo Fifi, don't be disheartened! I have a 2 year old boy who STILL doesn't sleep all night. But he seems ok for it although Mr Bok and I look rather worse for wear :) HUGS I know how debilitating sleep deprivation can be...

  2. oh yes, thanks for the understanding....we only have a few friends with kiddies so hardly anyone seems to understand! i'm not expecting a miracle and I certainly know that my 5mth old needs her feeds during the night, don't get me wrong....BUT it was getting crazy more than just a couple feeds per night. and hopefully we CAN have a 2 year old that sleeps through the night :) lotsa sleep and energy right back at ya! x
