Re: Need Reassurance about nighttime
It will get better, mama! I swear! Both my kids have been horrible sleepers. But my 5 year old sleeps through the night in her own bed, and has since age 2, and my toddler is down to 3 night-wakings without me having to push all that much. If you feel like your LO still needs to nurse, you're right. I know it can sometimes seem like you are the only one with a kid who doesn't sleep well from the get-go, but you're not. There's a vast secret society of parents who are quietly nursing their shame over their non-sleeping kids, and we all have to come out of the closet and support each other! I still remember talking to my DH's department chair at the annual Xmas party, and he asked "Does the baby sleep?" and I was like "Are you kidding me? No!" and he looked so relieved, and then told me that his kid was 7 and still needed a parent to come in and lay down with him.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
