I can see some light.
It took about 8 months, but I am finally seeing the light. Our son Kash has really given us a run for our money. Of course we wouldn’t change a thing. Well, I would love my sleep back. Notice I said I…my hubs can sleep through a hurricane. So I get up with our son…not once or twice, but normally three times a night. I even did the Ferber method which helped a little, but for some reason Kash can’t seem to sleep through the night without a peep. We are getting there. He does give us some good nights. I only had to get up with him at 1am and 6am last night- which is a great night for me! Not looking for sympathy. I know a lot of moms are going through this too. It’s part of it, right? Welcome to parenthood. We signed up for this, willingly with eagerness.
I spoke with a lady yesterday who mentioned using Valerian root. I researched it and saw that it was a sedative. Hmmm a sedative for my baby? I don’t know about this. But the lady insisted it wasn’t harmful. I
was just curious if anyone out there has tried it? Thoughts?
I am going to use it for myself to see the effects. If anything it might help ME sleep better- ha! Nothing worse than staring at a monitor all night.
