Welcome to My Online Village!
A place for sleep deprived mums
desperately looking for some baby sleep tips
and tricks to survive the sleep deprived season of motherhood.
Hi! I’m Ann…
I have gone through incredible sleep deprivation myself, having no village at all. This even resulted in a diagnosis of ‘mild PND’. I guess I was ‘lucky’ it was only mild.
I struggled a lot with having no support while taking care of a newborn who needed a feed every 2 hours for 3 months. Then she started slowing down the nightly feeds, but she still woke up 4 to 5 times a night by the time she was 10.5 months old. I considered myself blessed if I was able to sleep 2 hours in one go.
At that stage, I just suddenly realised I couldn’t handle it anymore. I just couldn’t continue like it.
