Q&A with a mommy of a toddler who was waking up multiple times at night
You would think by the 3rd child my husband and I would have it all figured out with a baby who would know how to self settle to sleep, well the answer is NO! We are so busy with our other two older boys that we just go with the flow day by day. There was no consistency with baby Jackson’s routine, I was so sleep deprived and so was baby that I had to reach out for help.
I used to survive on coffee and cat naps. I would wade through my life as a mother of two and a full-time working parent completely exhausted, like a zombie (or ‘mombie’, a mom zombie). My son, 10 months old, was a terrible sleeper. Since birth, he had never slept well – always needing to be rocked and shushed and patted and fed to sleep
I’m Serene, mother of 5.5 month old twin boys John and Nate. Before we engaged Zoe, our daily routine was chaotic and in a mess. I was feeding my twins on demand and nursing them to sleep and it felt like a never ending cycle. They also needed to be carried and rocked to sleep. We tried giving them pacifiers, but they didn’t take to it.
