Random of the day

I read in one of my baby magazines today that the average parent loses 700 hours of sleep in the first year of a child's life. That's 58 hours a month or almost 2 hours a night. Wow. I knew I was sleeping less, but didn't realize it could be that much.

So, question of the day - How many of you are feeling that sleep loss today?

Luckily enough, today I am not. Camden slept through for the first time in a week. Yay!

*raising hand* ME! Oh! Me!!! I am definitely feeling sleep loss. And I think I am missing more than 700 hours, darn kid. Last night he screamed for an HOUR because I did not promptly place boob in mouth as requested. If he can go 3 hours between feedings during the day I am positive he does not need to eat every 1.5 hours at night. Crazy kid.

So glad he slept through the night. I am feeling the sleep loss and my baby is 20 months old. She was up from 3-4 this morning. I stuck her in bed with me, but I wasn't able to sleep very good with her in there!

Congratulations! But I'm sure feeling it. My baby sleeps well as long as she's in my bed. But that means I don't sleep well.

I am not feeling it today. I am feeling the results of ignoring the fact that I am going to lose sleep these days. I slept. My kids dumped out cheerios. I am well rested in a messy house. Tomorrow I hope I am tired.

Hey! I read that same Article. Thank heaven for the time they sleep through the night. I find I don't need an afternoon nap!

Sleep? What is this thing of which you speak? My baby has started to be very fussy at night. That's what I get for saying that she was a good sleeper. (she was) ;p
