I barely slept when it was just my toddler, but now I have a newborn and sleep is a thing of the past. I’ve learned to function on very little sleep and find myself wide awake in the middle of the night even if everyone else is sleeping. My toddler makes her way into my room most nights and my newborn is usually up every few hours to nurse. Last night my newborn surprised us by sleeping through the night, but I still woke up to make sure everything was ok and she wasn’t too hot or cold.
Do you find yourself constantly waking as well? What do you do when you are awake? Most nights that I try to go back to sleep and can’t, I turn on the computer and just wait until my newborn’s next feeding. Isn’t it the worst when you finally fall asleep and then have to wake up 10 minutes later? So I try to entertain myself by playing online bingo or other games. Maybe I should be blogging and get some work done at that time, but I would rather play mindless games that are fun rather than work at 3am!
What are some things you do in the middle of the night if you can’t sleep?
