Hello 👋🏻 I have been totally MIA from this account. Mostly because #mumlyf 😏 but also because I just feel like Instagram is so noisy & I needed a time out. Also, I have been busy SLEEPING!! 😴
Last month I reached a point where I felt completely physically & mentally exhausted. Doing shift work with a toddler who wakes frequently overnight is bloody tough!! 😫
I never thought I would go to “sleep school” but honestly, something had to give. I was broken & brain dead. A good friend recommended Masada Early Parenting Centre, so I thought fuck it, what have I got to lose 🤷🏻♀️ Daisy & I packed our bags & headed to Masada For a 5 night stay.
It was bloody hard at times. I would be lying if I didn’t say I wanted to bail at least 10 times on the first day. But we did it! The nurses were lovely & 100% respected that I was still breastfeeding at 20 months. With their guidance, I was able to night wean Daisy, which I had struggled to do at home. She SLEPT THROUGH every night of course 🤣 And she was as happy as ever!!
We had a great “holiday” in St Kilda East & I had the most sleep I have had in years 😂 Things have been going really well at home ever since 🙌🏻 The “rules” have definitely been broken to suit Daisy, but it’s working & bed time is no longer something we dread. I’m just taking it easy now, catching up on sleep & feeling better every day!! 💃🏻 Gorgeous artwork by @stacieswift 💞
