Are you feeling exhausted getting up in the night with a little one?  Sometimes it seems to go on for ever!!  My fourth child didn’t sleep through properly until he was over 2.  The night we put him in with his sister he never woke up again.  I remember a health advisor saying – ‘humans are sociable animals, they like being with each other.  Let your children share a room together’.  How right was she?  Until your baby/child does sleep all night, take naps when you can.  When your baby is having a nap, either go to bed or nap with them, when your son/daughter is at pre school/school, if your husband is at home.  Sleep induces sleep, sometimes by having a little nap during the day you will sleep better at night.  The jobs will all still be there in the morning.  I’ll leave you with this…

‘Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow

Cos babies grow up, we learn to our sorrow

So quieten down cobwebs, dust go to sleep

I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep’
