"The truth is, I feel like sleep is a distant memory! When you're a baby's parent, there just isn't much sleep.
I think the first two weeks after your baby arrives are a blur. It's almost like having jet leg because you're up at such random hours and everything seems a little foggy.
I miss continuous sleep. I didn’t sleep much through my pregnancy because I was up going to the loo what felt like every two seconds. And then once my baby arrived, I was in a constant cycle of sleep, wake, feed, change, repeat.
I've almost become used to the tiredness, but I'm very fortune that I can get back to sleep after waking in the night. Plus, I try to sneak in the odd nap when my mum pops over to visit which helps a lot!
Now, we're going through teething, which brings a new set of challenges and sleep deprivation. My daughter is one, and sometimes she only wakes once or twice through the night. Other evenings, I'm back and forth for at least two and a half hours.
My son is three now, and he's gone through a stage of sleeping right through the night. So I keep reminding myself that it will get better as my little ones get bigger. Everything is seasonal and there will come a day when I'm asking them to wake up and get out of bed.
If you are at a stage where you're still getting sleep, enjoy it while you can!"
