Sleep when the baby sleeps


Written on Saturday, July 15, 2006 by Jessica

Yeah, right. I can't believe my insomnia has followed me to motherhood. The kid has been sleeping for hours on end, but me? I've been staring at the ceiling. I keep thinking, "His diaper must be so nasty by now. I'll bet he's soaked right thru. Why is he still sleeping? Is something wrong? Is he breathing? [Child makes grunting noise.] Yes, he's obviously breathing. Why is he still sleeping?" I wonder if all first timers are this fretful.

    yes, they are. I was probably the worst when Zach was a baby. I had read all the books, subscribed to the magazine Parenting, and second guessed every move I made.

    I can say one thing, it gets much easier with the second baby.
