Parental insomnia


It’s not uncommon for parents to look forward to that one moment. That moment your kid decides to sleep through the whole night. Finally! Nevertheless, you’ll still wake up a few times that night. Just because you are used to.

I have read this a few times, and the one linked to this post (find it in the bio) explains it again. Sleeping through the night is a matter of definition. As a parent, you consider a good night’s sleep as at least 8 hours of rest. But for your baby, it’s a mere 5 hours. So putting your baby to sleep at 7 in the evening, it will wake up around midnight. And yes. Again at 5 in the morning. The brutal truth is that your kid shouldn’t be sleeping through until they go to school!

The reason your kid will probably wake up a few times at night is that it wants to be fed. According to the World Health Organization, babies should drink breastmilk up to 2 years old. And feeding during the night is still important in this period. It will help with their growth and development.
