While I was pregnant I slept on my back.
I was always told how bad it was, I shouldn't do it, it's bad for me. it's bad for the baby etc...
I never got very big and it was the most comfortable way for me to sleep.
Now after having Abi, I still sleep on my back. I have too! Otherwise my boobs hurt too much as they fill up with milk!
We do ok in this house and most of us get plenty of sleep. I dare say I get the least!
Because my husband works, I never have ever expected that he get up for the night time feeds.
Lucky for me it now only seems to be one!
Abi generally goes to bed around 7pm.
I huge lesson learnt after reading and talking to lots of people about the "save our sleep" book.
It works! But because we started it later on, we don't give Abi the 'dream feed' but rather let her sleep through. She tends to wake sometime between 2-4am.
She feeds and goes back to sleep rather easily (most of the time)
Then she normally is up again between 8-9am and is one very happy and well rested baby!
Baby Zzz's... We all know how they 'should' sleep... But it wasn't working for us.
So... Abi actually sleeps on her tummy... I know I know... It's not good, SIDS risk etc...
But it was the only way we could settle her into a good sleep. And for that reason we still have her in our room, where as lots of people I know have their little ones already in their own rooms...
Sometimes before Abi settles herself (for her day sleeps) she moves all around and the other day I found her...
So, how do you sleep?
