Mothers How Do You Cope With Sleeplessness After Child Birth?

sleeplessness after child birth

Feb 20, 2014 – Mothers How Do You Handle Sleeplessness After Child Birth?

Please I need suggestions from all the mothers in the house.

I gave birth to my little Prince David on the 28th of December 2013 since then, I have been battling sleeplessness.

The baby hardly sleep at night. As am typing he is fast asleep.

I hardly sleep these days and it is giving me headache.

I just thought I should ask the mothers in the house.

Please how do you cope with sleeplessness or how do you put a little born to sleep…

I need your help ….#JJC

    poor you take heart babies do change their schedule
    At this stage, they wake up constantly to eat.
    To put him to bed, give him a warm bath and give him milk
    Don’t breatfeed him.
    Keep in mind, you have to follow his schedule. He is the boss of ur sleeping schedule now.
    Whenever he is sleeping, you too should go to bed.
    All the best wit ur baby

    Don’t tell me Prince David is now in charge of the castle.check if his crown is too tight for his little head,make use he approves all the servants in his kingdom. Don’t mind me my dear, sorry to disappoint you there nothing you can do now,just follow his routine and manage it,Time his sleeping pattern and sleep whenever he sleeps,I don’t know if you were taught the wrap up with blanket at the hospital because it helps them feel relax and sleep more.you can Google it.set a time table for feeding him and stick to it this will enable you know when to sleep.wet diapers can keep them awake too.As for yourself,try having a glass of warm milk before sleeping. Sorry am not a mom yet,Am a nurse and works with babies so i don’t have much experience with them.Don’t worry dear,soon you will take over from David but right now he is the boss that loves yelling just to hear his voice.good luck my dear.

    My dear that is a pride we have to pay as a mother. It is not easy especially when your baby is a baby boy they suck breast more than baby girls in the night. I am a mother like you. Just bear with the baby, with time he/she will change. But what you will do now if you are not working since you said you baby does not sleep in the night,is to program yourself so that each time the baby is sleeping during the days you too should try and join him to sleep so that when the baby is awake you too will be awake for him. Above all madam, see it as a thing of joy for there are hundred of them out there looking for such opportunity and they never see. God bless you and your baby
