II am breastfeeding my 4 month old son, sitting on the bed at 2:00 am and hitting the stairs in the apartment, I have a say in my head. We are struggling to think clearly as we enter the second week of waking up every hour of the night.
No wonder sleep deprivation is used as a form of torture. When we finish this step, maybe I will be able to survive.
Last night was the worst. You decided to hit the ceiling at 3:30 am as if it would help. And this morning, my husband and I received an email from the agent who manages the apartment. You complained that our baby was awake at night. In order to avoid disturbing sleep, we suggested moving the baby to an extra room to avoid the transmission of noise between floors.
Reading this email reveals many emotions. Shame soon fell into guilt, frustration, anger and anger. How dare you? Except for advice that your baby should sleep in the same room as your baby until the age of six months to minimize the risk of a cot death, why can you move your baby early on Earth to sleep better? If you bother so much in the extra room, why not sleep? Or do you get a decent earplug?
My husband and I know how terrible it is to disturb sleep. We sincerely regret you. But in fact, our baby has bad teeth and unfortunately there is nothing we can do.
You cannot lower the volume. We can not reason about him. He is a baby. The baby is crying a lot. What we can do is make him feel safe, secure and loved. And eventually his sleep will improve.
Please wait a while. I just went through traumatic birth. Only four months did not sleep properly. And now, above all, I am stressing on noise due to your complaints.
As a new mom trying to touch one day at a time, there is nothing to worry about.
