For me, one of the most challenging parts of raising a baby has been the sleep deprivation. My daughter did not sleep through the night until she was about 14 months old, and even then it was sporadic. In fact, it is still sporadic. Sometimes she'll do great. Other times, not so much.
Tuesday night was a difficult night for us, and I spent all of Wednesday longing to put my head on the pillow and take a nap.
In light of this (OK, and because I am too tired to write a regular post), I wanted to share this great post from The Happiest Home.
Coping With Sleep Deprivation by Sarah Powers
Sarah lists several excellent tips for coping with sleep deprivation, and even though it is geared toward moms with new babies I think it contains some gems for all of us. My favorite is the one about avoiding screen time at night (I blogged about this topic myself last year). So, so important.
Do you have any great tips for coping with sleep deprivation?
