I heard last week that the average mother loses 700 hours of sleep the first year of her child's life. Sounds about right. No wonder we do such nutty things. Lucy however is helping me turn that tide and is sleeping very well. She is usually in bed by 6 and only up once to nurse between bedtime and 5:30a.m.. I am so thankful for this glorious sleep! Now if I could only find a way to go to bed at 6 too!
I have this book to thank( along with many friends and family who encouraged and supported us along the way). What a difference it made in our sleep lives. It was a bitter pill to swallow but was well worth it in the end.
