Indy // Bubbaroo Baby Sleep Diary Entry #3

We’re terribly thankful to be working with the Infant Sleep Consultants and Bubbaroo on the #BubbarooBabySleepDiary project. You can find all of our previous posts here. Day Twelve: Tuesday 29th September (continued) We had a bit of a breakthrough this afternoon – Indy slept in his new pushchair whilst out and about, and then continued to sleep in it when we got home! He’s never done this before, so it’s either the cold knocking him out or we’re getting  ...

Indy // Bubbaroo Baby Sleep Diary Entry #1

After our initial consultation with Annie from Infant Sleep Consultants (you can catch up with that post here) I talked Nick through our conversation that evening, and planned to start implementing the new structure the following day. Day One: Friday 18th September Indy had five feeds every three hours today. I alternated each feed between breast and bottle, and he hasn’t been as fussy or angry with me as I thought he would be!

Motherhood // The seven stages of sleep deprivation

We’ve been the proud owners of a newborn baby for almost three weeks now, and with a Toddler who isn’t sleeping particularly well either (“Wheels on the bus” at the top of her lungs at 4am… what a TREAT!), it is suffice to say we’re pretty knackered at the moment. Indy, the Boob Muncher, has provided me with lots of thinking time at 3am, and I’ve decided that there are seven stages of sleep deprivation that I’ve experienced so far. 1. The  ...
