I asked 2 Young Moms Club Mommies “How in the world do you get enough sleep?”
When my kids were young I was constantly tired. Their responses were very informative and made me laugh. If I could go back in time, I would definitely try some of these things.

him on the boob. Then back to sleep for the both of us. And then he wakes a few hours later and we roll to the other side and go back to sleep.

coming into our bedroom one morning at 3am. to take a wailing colicky infant from two half asleep and very distressed parents! At the time I felt like the worst mother in the world for not being able to get my own son to sleep, but with time I realized that she was only trying to help and that sometimes you should just let go a little bit!
. The night light works with batteries and they really go a long way. The lights are also timed, so that they turn off after 45 minutes if you fall asleep with them on.
The other is Lavender Oil – I put a few drops of this in his bath water at night and it has really helped to calm him down before bedtime. When my son was a bit younger, I used to put two drops of lavender oil on the underside of the bottom of his mattress in stead, so that the smell wasn’t too overpowering and the oil couldn’t come into contact with his skin to cause irritation.
Another trick that I found useful was to get a good sized teddy bear and some broad ribbons to tie it to my son’s cot so that it couldn’t come loose and pose a threat to him, but would still be a comfort since he wouldn’t be alone in such a big bed. Just make sure that you tie the ends of the ribbons down so that your baby can’t get entangled in them! Albert still adores his plush puppy, Fudge, and sleeps with him in his arms every night.
