Confessions of Real-Life Night Weaning

If your husband comes to bed at 5am (because he is working so hard on his own company,) and you move your recently weaned sleeping baby so you can lay next to your husband (to preserve the sanctity of the marital bed amidst year seven of co-sleeping with various children,) your baby will wake up at 5am and then you will be nursing her (for another hour while trying to go back to sleep) and it will feel like the middle of the night (because it’s still dark out.) Eventually, you and baby will fall back asleep (husband has been snoring since 5am; none of this has affected him) and when your baby awakens you at 7:15am to start the day, you will, alas, not feel rested.

A day in the life, my friends.

In the big picture, this is a small moment in time.

Much love,
