#FBF, this was taken about a year ago. Crazy how fast they grow. || New post on the blog today about healthy sleeping habits for your child. Do you use a sound machine? I break down my experience with them (sound machines are sanity savers!) and what helped get this little one to sleep like a champ 12 hours a night starting at #3monthsold!

EVIDENT CHANGES. Did you know that we preemies don’t cry much even if we are pricked w/ needles and attached with all medical gadgets? Preemies also smile more than full term babies. So it’s my second week on my adjusted age and some changes are becoming evident. The obvious is my weight. I’m now a 10 pounder! Yippee!!! I’m a heavy weight for a 2 week old baby😅 Other changes which only my family see is that I am becoming a demanding one. It takes a long time before I can sleep, specially when it’s Didi’s shift. I make all kinds of funny grunting noises specially if he doesn’t pick me up and carry me in his arms. I want him moving and bringing me to all parts of our small apartment: the kitchen, the laundry room, dining, upstairs in their bedroom and Mom’s. Sometime even after numerous trips my eyes are still wide awake. If he attempts to put me down, even if my eyes are closed, I would start crying. Didi, I’m only pretending to be asleep! Every time Mimi wakes up to take her care shift, Didi would relay I gave him a hard time😅😂🤣. But with Mimi, just her reciting our morning prayers or saying the Holy Rosary, I automatically fall asleep. If that doesn’t do it, she plays Baby Mozart and I drift, doze and snore. I don’t know if I sleep out of boredom or I like the sound, smell and music. Is my brain developing that now I’m able to form preferences? slowly recognizing pain and different emotions? Discovering my power to make demands to the people who care for me? Hmmmm🤔 Life gets exciting!
Here is what Kirsty had to say " The biggest thank you to Kim for all her guidance, support and help in teaching us how to support Sam to develop his own good sleeping habits. When we started out no one was really getting any sleep and at his worst Sam was waking every hour, unable to transition through sleep cycles and very dependent on sleep props (dummy, rocking) to fall asleep. A month on and he is able to settle to sleep on his own in his cot without props, transition through sleep cycles, has dropped his night feed and started sleeping through the night. We are so proud of his progress and thrilled to have been supported by Kim to understand and develop the skills
we needed as parents to support Sam through this transition. No baby is the same and Kim was able to provide us with a
presonalised plan that was gentle, baby-led and didn't involve prolonged screaming and crying. We couldn't recommend her enough!
I have a mental health assessment in less than 12 hours, it’s 3am and I am in bed feeling incredibly achey and WIRED.
When I was younger I used to stay awake all night and sleep all day. I remember enjoying it sometimes, at the beginning.
In my experience, when you’re in constant pain and you can’t engage your brain at appropriate times of the day, the moment you feel a jolt of inspiration, you feel like you have to bound towards it and cling on for dear life, even if it happens to be between 2:00 and 6:00 in the morning.
So I would do just that, staring into my laptop, sitting in my bed, with the sun rising in the sky, the cold creeping in through the cracks of my single paned window. I’d click my fingers on the keys until I got lost in that screen and forgot about the world around me, about myself and my pain.
Eventually the all-nighters started to take their toll. I was isolated, my family, friends and peers all running on a different schedule to me. In the winter I rarely saw the sun. Now I think “What a horrible thing, to miss out on the sun.” And it was horrible, it added to the (ever-steadily growing) long list of things which were making me feel miserable.
For a long time I feared not being able to sleep. I’d remember how bad not sleeping made me feel, which would keep me up all night. This happened over and over. I was painfully anxious about napping and sleeping in late, I still sometimes struggle with those things.
This post doesn’t exactly have an ending, which I’m sure will really bug me after I’ve had some rest... But I’m sure you can be forgiving, for my sleepy head can’t go on any longer, and I should be forgiving of that too.
결혼하고 알게 된 사실 2가지,
1. 내가 생각보다 잠꼬대를 자주 한다는 것
2. 결혼 전부터 왜 항상 내 매트가 내려갈까 했는데
실제로 자면서 내가 계속 내려감..
심지어 어제는 잠꼬대 원인을 찾아봤는데 스트레스가 주 원인이란다.. 스트레스 없는데..
자주 그럼 병원 가봐야 하나ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
주로 질문을 함ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
