A Testimonial from a Sleep Deprived Mum
As first time parents you get lots of unhelpful advice, especially when you have a problem. Our problem was that we hadn't had a full night's sleep for 20 months and the cracks were really showing!
Our daughter would need cuddling to sleep and would wake up every night, at least once, for around 2 whole hours. Lots of people told me to let her cry herself to sleep, but that felt wrong to me, it hurt me to even think about it,so we carried on cuddling her to sleep and hoped one day she'd sleep through the night by herself.
My husband has a demanding job and I am pregnant again and looking after an active toddler, we started to feel like we weren't fulfilling our roles properly, like exhaustion had become part of our personalities and we were totally different people.
We were unhappy, stressed and parenting became harder and harder. The disturbed sleep must have been having the same effect on our daughter.
