I’d like to start by apologizing for being absent last week. Jannah is currently going through a leap, has a cold, and has been absolutely miserable and a handful, so I took the week off to tend to her.
Isn’t it frustrating when your little bundle of joy wakes up throughout the night? We end up so exhausted and frustrated from having to take care of our babies. It’s just not fair. In desperation, mamas research ways to get their newborns or babies to sleep through the whole night. Here’s some ways that work like a charm!
Start by getting your brain fixed. Babies wake up because they need to eat. Their tummies are still tiny, so they need to eat around the clock. As a parent, you must sacrifice comfort and other things in order to take care of the child you brought into this world. I promise you they aren’t waking up to be an inconvenience. Nobody said parenting would be easy. If it helps, try bedsharing or cosleeping. If you’re going to research anything, research how to safely bedshare. I was exhausted until I started bedsharing with Jannah. We both get sleep and she gets the milk she needs. Your baby comes first before yourself. Trying to get a baby to sleep through the entire night is just absolutely ridiculous.
Stop trying to get that poor baby to sleep through the night mama. If people are trying to tell you that she should be by now or whatever, ignore them. If baby wakes up, feed her. And no… rice cereal and or formula will not help baby sleep longer. Babies aren’t meant to sleep the entire night. Just remember… it won’t last forever.
