Before you become a parent, you take sleep for granted. After all, you can completely control how much sleep you get simply by adjusting your bedtime or wake-up time.
After having a baby, however, sleep becomes this unknown variable in your life; it becomes this elusive concept that changes from night to night. As a parent of an infant, you often find yourself thinking…
CAN I JUST GET SOME F@#%!#& SLEEP PLEASE?!
Somewhere in the back of your mind, you know it’s temporary. But when you’re going on your 10th straight night of only sleeping in 1-2 hour blocks, you start to lose that part of your brain that thinks logically.
After experiencing something like this, we knew there had to be a way to make it better.
But because every baby is different, there isn’t any ONE thing that will work for every baby. So, we set out to compile the wisdom of many parents who have been through this and have found a strategy that works for improving their baby’s sleep habits.
And just as important, improving their own sleeping habits.
We tracked down 29 parents and asked them this question:What’s the #1 thing that worked for you when it came to improving your son or daughter’s sleep habits as an infant?
Keep reading, and we’ll reveal what everyone told us (and even share what’s currently working for us).
