I can’t help but ask the question why my little baby finds it so difficult to sleep when other mums seem to be fine. I mean we’re all sleep deprived to some degree but I find that we’re lagging particularly far behind.
It’s not uncommon to be waking every hour during the night to feed, nappy change and then settle (which takes another hour in itself).
If we get three hours in a row it’s a worthy fist pump.
We’ve tried swaddling, dummy sucking, fist sucking, medications, rocking, swinging the hammock, bathing before bed, changing into pyjamas, walking, singing, laying together.. it’s all just attempts to find the sleep magic – whether or not it will result in the desired outcome is all concluded by how baby feels in this particular evening.
What’s the magic touch and why is it that some babies just sleep while others simply don’t.
