“It’s not just a phase anymore, it’s a habit”

There’s no doubt about it that I am sleep deprived. It’s the main focus of my blog posts at the moment and I apologise for that. The health visitor came last week to weigh and check up on P3, at the same time she asked questions about P2 and things about her development. The time before that she focused on …

Coping With Crying

“I need a doctors appointment for my daughter” “Ok, what’s wrong?” “This is going to sound silly, but she’s my third daughter so I know I’m not being stupid but she won’t stop crying and I just need to get her checked” That was the conversation I had last Monday with the doctor receptionist after we’d experienced two or three …

“It just cannot be healthy to never sleep through the night”

I sound like a broken record really and I know that but I hope that when I look back on each and every post where I’ve moaned about sleep that I will be at a point where I’m actually getting some decent shut eye and can laugh about these days. Right now though, I don’t feel like laughing. I feel …

“The post-pregnancy new-mother hormones raged”

Yesterday was an awful day full of P3 crying continuously from 7am until 6pm and having a total of about 15 minutes sleep the whole entire day whilst I also tackled the needs of a very poorly toddler so this morning I’d decided to get the two of them out of the house for some fresh air and use the …

“I’ve never truly had a sleepless night”

I’ve been a Mum for nearly six years. I’ve spent a lot of those years complaining of sleepless nights, especially and more particularly the past 20 months. However, after last night, I realised that I’ve never truly had a sleepless night and it really should have just been me moaning about broken sleep. Last night, I got a total of …

“I’m feeling so much more calmer about space now”

When we first moved into our home we naturally took the bigger room as we were sharing with P2 in her cot and P1 had the smaller room, but after a suggestion by a sleep therapist that came over to assist with P2s stirring, we moved into the smaller room and the girls began their journey of sharing. It didn’t …

DreamGenii Pregnancy Pillow Review

It’s the main thing I’ve moaned about during this pregnancy and it too begins with the letter “P”. Pain. I seem to have been dished the very shortest straw when it comes to pain and have been in agony for what seems like the whole duration. With the uncomfortable only increasing I was very excited to review the DreamGenii Pregnancy …

A Fear Of Darkness

Our day started slow. After having a night of P2 waking every hour I’d decided to laze in bed for a few hours whilst the girls played and watched a film. I knew I needed to get a doctors appointment for P1 and myself – P1 has had a few lumpy scabs appear on her scalp and I was pretty …

Concerns About Sleep and Measuring Small During Pregnancy

I thought we’d cracked it. The sleeping situation. They haven’t been a complete breeze but they’ve certainly been easier. An average bedtime starts at 7pm – I get P2 changed and into PJs whilst P1 goes to the loo and brushes her teeth. We have one story together on P2s bed. By about 7:20 both girls are in their separate …

“The bedtime war starts”

The GroAnywhere black out blind has been placed on the window, the blind pulled down over the top and the lights are dim. P1 is going to the toilet, getting herself undressed and brushing her teeth whilst I change P2s bottom and get her ready for bed. P2 is handed her half bottle of milk to drink whilst we read …

“There was a rather loud donk and a screaming P1”

First of all I’ll set the scene. We’d had yet another bad bedtime on Saturday, the girls were both up early, P1 was being as defiant as ever and I was juggling a stroppy P2 who I’d attempted to entertain by allowing some water play in the kitchen whilst I cooked egg and dippers for lunch. Hubby was having his …
