Our Thursday Photo #14

Week 14 has been all about sleep deprivation. Libby has always been an amazing sleeper. Really amazing. She slept through the night from the age of 8 weeks. She has a couple of hours sleep every afternoon as well, even now. Lia on the other hand, doesn’t. 

Lia has never been one for sleeping and I don’t think it’s her fault. The problem is that we are always running around doing something with Libby, so it is really difficult to get Lia down for decent naps. Today I’m trying to get her to have a sleep this afternoon at the same time as Libby, but it’s not going well. It seems that babies don’t sleep so well when they get overtired, and as she doesn’t sleep much during the day, she is exhausted by night time. She sleeps from around 8pm until around 2 am, but then she can be up another two times before we get up at around 7.30 to 8am. 

As I tend not to get to bed until around midnight (I often go running at around 10pm so can’t sleep for a while after getting back), I’m really not getting much sleep at all. The sleep has got worse over the past few weeks. We had a few nights early on where she slept through, then she went to waking up once in the night and now we’re up to two or three times. I don’t know what I will do if it gets any worse, especially as I should be starting work soon. Any suggestions as to how to sort this out would be gratefully received. 

In the meantime, here is our Thursday photo #14 and I’m off to try to get Lia to sleep… again!
