Sleep training - is this you?

If you are considering sleep training it probably means you're not sleeping and this could mean any of the following:

  • You regret having had a baby

  • You cry at the drop of a hat

  • Your sex life is non existent

  • You feel useless and a bad parent

  • You have headaches due to lack of sleep

  • You love your baby but you don't like him

  • You are constantly fighting with your partner

  • You feel completely overwhelmed and helpless

  • You feel like your life as you once knew it is over

  • You've toyed with the idea of drugging your baby

  • You are unable to make the simplest of decisions

  • You are on medication for depression due to lack of sleep

  • Your head is thick like cotton wool and you can't think clearly

  • You have no energy and drag yourself out of bed every morning

  • You just want to curl up in a corner, hide your head and be left alone

  • You wish for your 'old' life back - the one when you weren't a parent

  • The thought of giving your baby away to any willing taker is appealing

  • You resent your baby because it is because of him that you aren't sleeping

  • You don't want to spend any time with your baby because he is constantly crying because he is so tired

  • There are times when you could physically harm your baby and therefore don't trust yourself around him

  • You feel guilty because you have these thoughts but you daren't tell anyone

If you can relate to some or all of the above don't panic as you are not alone. The above is exactly how I felt when our son was waking so frequently, and it doesn't mean you are a bad parent, it simply means the sleep deprivation has gotten the better of you.

Parenting isn't all about screaming infants, sleepless nights, frustration and tears; the parenting journey can be a joyful and fulfilling experience. Baby Love is Designed For Happy Families, and I hope your family can be one too.
