There can only be one word this week. Sleep! Well more accurately lack of sleep.
Buddy wasn’t the best sleeper. In a moment of generosity (read madness) I said I’d do all the night feeds. At the time I didn’t realise just how bad a sleeper he was going to be!
I also didn’t realise that this was going to carry over to Little Miss OMG 7 years later! She makes Buddy seem like a hibernating bear!!
Not one night has she slept through! Some nights I get hourly wake ups, in a lot of cases she doesn’t even wake. Just rolls around on the bed whinging in her sleep.
I’m not one for sleep training. When there are three other kids we can’t afford for her to scream the house down and wake everyone else up.
So it looks like we’ll be watching BabyTV in the wee small hours for a while longer.
To be fair to Mrs OMG she will take over some mornings or let me disappear for a nap when Little Miss OMG has hers.
