A few months before my son arrived, we finally got my daughter to fall asleep on her own - you know, without having to rock, stroke, sing, and lay next to her. Seriously, we put on a veritable Cirque du Soleil every night just to get her to close her eyes.
When Drew came home, she decided naps were for sissies.
And now, well, she's decided to come visit my husband every morning at around 3am thanks to scary dreams, the need for a sip of water, or lately, to just say "hello."
Even with the wee one eating every few hours, I'm actually getting some sleep. However, even three to four hours in a row really doesn't cut it when you spend the entire day with a baby in a sling, chasing after two other kids. In fact, by 7:30pm I'm ready to crash. Too bad that's when my money-making "work day" actually begins.
I've asked friends, neighbors, and the internets about my past and present sleep druthers. I've read a bunch of books and searched "dear god please help me my kid won't sleep" on Google.
But on November 12, at 2pm EST, I'm going to ask a real live sleep expert all the questions that I've ever wanted answered about sleep.
You should too. Register for the webcast - it's easy because you can go about your business with your computer open and not have to sit in front of the screen.
And get your sleep questions answered too. No advice. No assvice.
Just some good solid answers. I hope.
