I was thinking the other day about Squidge and the issues we had with her sleeping through the night. She’s my only one so I’ll never know if what I did had any effect on her sleeping or not sleeping.
My overriding memory of that time was that Squidge slept… eventually. I remember lots of crying. She was very windy and I did’t know how to help her.
I never really did sleep training but I did put her on a schedule- once she stopped breastfeeding at around 4 1/2 months it was so much easier to do.
It was during the early months of very little sleep that I started blogging. It was a way to keep sane and to keep my family up to date with what I was up to. I’m so glad I did as with most things- time has a way of softening the edges and making you forget. It’s a good thing too!
Cussons have followed on from the #VoiceofMums campaign with #SilentSocial an all night, silent social media event on the night of 28th March to keep company with the mums and dads who find themselves blearily rocking the baby off to sleep in the early hours of the morning with no one for company. While the middle of the night is sometimes the perfect time to gaze in adoration at your bundle of fun, there are times when it is hard to feel the love and someone to chat and moan to is what you need. Find out more on their Twitter stream. The Cussons Mum & Me range is available from Boots, ASDA, Ocado, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Wilko and is a range of Mum & Babay bathtime products including ones to promote easy sleep.
