As a Mom, there are a few areas I struggle with. I struggle with many things actually. My two biggest struggles are sleeping schedules and potty training. Today, I want to focus on sleeping schedule. I know this is something that I struggled with all my babies at one time or another. Now, I have 3 girls that sleep very well through the night with very few night wakings. Their night wakings are: they need to go to the bathroom, had a nightmare, needing some attention so I will lay with them, or they are sick.
Just when I think Briella is on a schedule, she is not. I know you are not to wake up a sleeping baby, but here we sit at 10:15 AM and Briella is still sleeping. Granted I did not get her asleep until midnight last night. She has proven that she can sleep long periods of time straight. I need to adjust these long stretches to occur earlier in the night. I am thinking I need to give her a later bath time to set the mood for sleep time. Today since she slept in so long, I know nap schedule is totally off too. Normally I would be okay with winging it, but not knowing when I will have alone time with my husband or me time, is not sitting well with me. Frankly, it is getting old. I just need to try to get her on a schedule again. I just need to remember that this too shall pass.
