This thing came exactly 2 years and 6 days after his brother, so no “happy occurrence” as previously anticipated. As many may know and relate, raising a toddler and an infant, is no easy feat. Changing a 2 year old poopy nappy and a runny infant nappy one after the other can have quite a knockout effect on one. Now let’s talk about preparing food for them, avoiding the store bought- convenient stuff, wait, maybe not, that should be a post for another day, But yes, it has been crazy. It has been tiring and uninspiring. But it has also been filled with a lot of love, giggles, hugs and laughter.
My first teletubby was sleep trained very early on. With the second one however, i dropped the ball. I was too nonchalant and relaxed and took it for granted he was a natural good sleeper, so i wont struggle. WRONG.With everyday of sleeping on the wing, being breastfed to sleep, rocked to sleep and co sleeping with mummy, I was digging myself deep into a well i could no longer get out. the boy was hooked.
Until last week when i snapped and decided there and then from my little corner at the office that, “tonight i’m going to sleep train the thing, however long it takes, however heart wrenching it may get at times”.It’s 7 days today, six nights of no cohabiting, but may i use the word smooth? Yes smooth has been the transition from mummy and daddy’s bed to cot, and for the first time this past night, he slept throughout the night, without even a little whine from him. Alone in his cot, in the bedroom he shares with big brother.
oh happy day……#Sing with me please#, Oh happy day,( Oh happy day). Oh happy day……Proper sleeping coupled with that crossfit workout I’ve been getting up to at the box during my lunch break, DivineMo, is back baby. Reclaiming my life one sleep at a time.!
