“I only love my bed and my momma, I’m sorry” — Drake [correction: Xander only loves his mama 😆]. Tuesday Talk — Sleep or lack thereof 😴 🤰🏽When I was pregnant, I said to my husband “ we are not going to do co-sleeping, no rocking, no driving around - straight in the crib he is going to go!” Forward 9 months later, we co-sleep, we rock — we do everything to put our little one to sleep - except plop him in the crib and walk away. 😴 Some days, I want to throw in the towel and hire a sleep consultant. Because I have have read and tried every theory out there on how to put your baby to sleep in the crib. But I have heard that things like growth spurts, teething, “wonder weeks”, and sleep regression can all throw sleep off anyways. 😴 Some days we have successful sleeps in the crib. Other days, it’s like the quote: “I’m stuck under a sleeping baby, with a full bladder and a dying phone”. 😴 Some days I feel like he needs to sleep in the crib, because I have a long list of “to do”. Some days the mom guilt and mom judgement cloud my mind, and I feel like I’m failing when he isn’t sleeping in the crib. 😴 Then there are days - where I don’t mind holding him - because one day he won’t be so small - because maybe some days he just wants his mama - because I dreamt of these days - because I CAN. 😴 Thank goodness for Netflix 😝 with a sleeping baby on my lap - we’ve given a whole new meaning to “Netflix and chill”. 😴 Who else caves on some days and let’s baby on sleep on lap? 🙋🏽♀️ Tell me I’m not alone here. What do you while baby is sleeping on your lap?
