Read carefully, comment what you think.
Long story short – I don’t sleep well anymore.
You can imagine everyone is blaming it on motherhood and stress of looking after baby Arwen constantly, being alert is taking a toll on my body – blah blah blah
I admit, the responsibility of my daughter was exhausting when she was new, but as time has progressed and confidence has grown we are better than ever.
There are routines in place, each day is new and healthy and happy.
Arwen sleeps through the whole night, she has several naps during the day and she eats very well.
So I’m going to get really angry if someone else blames my lack of sleep on my perfect gift of a daughter one more time!
So help me?
I can’t sleep at night. That feeling of lying there waiting to drop off makes me feel anxious and sick. I don’t sleep until I am so tired that I just pass out when I lay my head down, which means I stay awake for nearly 2 days at a time.
If I do take the time to get to bed at a reasonable time to make sure I’m well rested, I wake up in the middle of the night anyway?!
It’s not like I can take sleeping pills because of breastfeeding and the terrifying idea of not waking up if Arwen calls or cries!
I do plenty of activities in the day.
I try to limit electronics and screens before bed.
I try to read.
I try to drink plenty of water.
I eat well and I’m completely comfortable 24/7.
What am I missing??!
