At her first pediatrician appointment after the birth of her son the doctores were shocked that she looked so well rested when she had a three day old..... But wait??? Well rested with a newborn?? That's not a thing..... Is it?
Enjoy the sleep now while you can because when your baby comes you'll never sleep again! That's what you hear, right? Everyone likes to talk about how sleep deprived you're going to be with a newborn. And alternatively, those same people then turn around and want to know if your baby is sleeping through the night, then silently judge you if your answer is no.
Well.... guess what??? Babies are NOT supposed to sleep through the night BUT there are absolutely some things breastfeeding mommas can do to make night time a whole lot easier! "I asked my husband what the most surprising thing about having a baby has been for him, or the thing he didn't expect. He said sleep, hands down. Everyone said he'd be sleep deprived and miserable with a new baby and he's not." - Allison Alexander.
