It takes a village to raise a child
What I love about blogging is the time to sit and read other people's experiences when you might be feeling a little bit alone in your world. Especially with being only new to a town/community and have yet to build those networks that support you and who you are. The above link confirmed how really it is unusual in the word, to be alone with your baby all the time. Fostering a village is what I'm looking forward to.
Pleased to say gently gently we have made some leadway to all of us getting some more sleep. With some constant tweaking of the sleeping set up, we are now sleeping 6-7 hours before needing a feed say anywhere between 12 and 3am and then sleeping more peacefully again until the morning. He is still coming in for that cherished early morning cuddle/feed. It was really the time for Che to have some of his own space and I think is only now starting to say, in his own baby way, Oh yeh sleep, excellent!.
