I really should be sleeping...

Any one else just didn't sleep after they had a baby ??? Even though you want to your just kinda restless? I dont have baby blues or anything I only cried once in the hospital because of joy not because of sadness... But I just want to do things when my two children are sleeping now, and just getting atleast 5 hours a night is good enough for me...

  • With my first kid, I never quite got the hang of "sleep when the baby sleeps". By the time I realized it was safe for me to lay down and rest, he would wake up.

    With my second, it's just not possible. To paraphrase a friend, "Regarding caring for a preschooler and newborn: Sometimes it's great, and sometimes it's like trying to protect a crying ham from a baboon." When she's asleep, I have to be awake to make sure her big brother doesn't try to poke her eye out or stick his fingers up her nose.
