Sleep, Sleep, Sleep, Everyone Needs Sleep in This House
So no one is sleeping?
Being new parents comes with a whole lot of responsibilities, adjustments and life changes, add in sleep deprivation and you might be loosing your mind right about now. I get it, I really do! People tell you to "sleep when baby sleeps", except that is not how it works, because you wont be doing the laundry when baby is doing the laundry and so on. The fact is your baby does not know how to go to sleep on their own or in their own space and you are now napping with a baby on your chest or sleeping with a baby in-between you and your partner. No judgement here, if sleeping with your kiddos is what you want your life to look like, no problem, if it's not, then there are solutions for you.
Sleep so important
Sleep is so very important for developing brains and parents, specifically mothers, who are not only trying to recover from childbirth, but also function during the day. It is hard to do the day to day things if you are constantly exhausted. It is hard to keep your milk supply up when you are exhausted. It is hard to recovery from Postpartum Depression if you are sleep deprived. It's hard to get things done when you're sleep deprived. It is hard to have energy to invest with your little one when you are sleep deprived. The list goes on! Sleep is also very important for your little one as they grow, learn and reach all of their milestones.
How can your family get sleep?
Families often come to us with tired eyes and babies that will only sleep if you swaddle, bounce them for exactly 6.4 minutes, sing to them, pat them to sleep, and then slowly lay them down, only for them to wake up an hour later and the process begins again. Sometimes the baby will resettle but continues to wake hour after hour and you are tired and frustrated. THERE IS a solution. Your family can have sleep, it'll be a learning process, but you do not have to have all of the answers yourself or go it alone. Tiffany, Certified Sleep Coach through our sister company Family Bliss, will come to your home and create a plan that will work for you and your family, with everyone sleeping at the end of the process.
The truth is, no one is sleeping and it is not only hard on you, your baby but also your relationship. Schedule a complimentary sleep assessment call to learn how we can help your family.
