We are in the midst of a Wonder Week, and while it isn’t so bad as when Oliver went through his, it leaves me really tired. On top of that there’s just the daily duties like laundry to do. Baby wearing is helpful for a lot of parents out there. While I don’t mind wearing Sammy, she does not sleep if there’s a lot of bending over, like picking up toys.
I felt bad wearing her and eating because she would be covered in crumbs. But now that she is bigger, she can fit in the Ergo. So I use the hood to cover her while I eat. Haha, but seriously it works! When she was smaller I used the Boba wrap and a Maya ring sling, which definitely did not have anything to protect her pretty head from crumbs!
Other times, she only falls asleep when I hold her. And then I am held hostage and only hope that the remote control to the TV and my fully charged iPhone are within arms length. Any unnecessary movement will wake up Sammy, and then all bets are off.
Our night sleeps have now gone from 7-8 hours to 5 hours, which is nothing to complain about compared to others. But when you are used to a good stretch of sleep, it throws you for a loop. If you haven’t invested in coffee stock, you should totally look into it cause that’s what gets me through the mornings.
Ahhh, the mommy life. One day it will get better, I know it.
P.S. Did I mention we are moving across the country next month? No packing being done by this mama!!!
