Forget what the professionals say… If the only way she’s going to sleep is flopped out on your pillow on top of your head, LET HER. Trust me, that’s the only way ANYONE is going to get any sleep!
Ever have one of those nights when the baby wakes you up for a feeding and you’re so foggy tired, thinking “I don’t know how long I can keep going like this,” only to discover its not the middle of the night, it’s only 9 pm? Yeh, I got nothing. No tips here. Just pray to God that it doesn’t happen two days in a row… Or more!
You know when the Sandman comes to visit and Baby girl breaks out the nun-chuks to fight him off? Yeh, just throw a blanket over her head. She’ll go out like a light. And next time, don’t wait till Midnight!
You can pick your friends. You can pick your nose. But you can’t pick your friend’s nose.
You CAN, however, pick your baby’s nose. Just don’t try doing it in the middle of the night. Trust me. Those boogies can wait for morning. You can thank me later – after you’ve had some sleep.
Midnight Mommy Tip #4:
Save your toes from getting stubbed – leave the Christmas lights up year-round. The ambient light makes for a perfect night-light, especially if you drape a random curtain over them. Nevermind there’s no window there… Pay no attention to what’s not behind the curtain!
Midnight Mommy Tip #3: When the box says the diapers stay dry for up to 12 hours… They LIE.
