What were we thinking! promote confidence and reduce distress in parents with a first baby

One step forward, two steps back

One step forward, two steps back

I never thought sleep would rule my life so much. Sam is now 12 weeks old and is back to waking up twice overnight again. I tried to resettle him but all of us ended up for over an hour and the only thing that would settle him was a feed. Sometimes when he woke my head felt like lead and I could barely get out of bed. Luckily John would bring Sam to bed so I could feed him and then put him back to bed.


I tried not to feel defeated but was worried he was going to need feeding to sleep again. I was told it was a growth spurt and should improve in a few days which we are both looking forward to.
