Bedtime routine.

Oliver has had his days and nights mixed up ever since we brought him home from the hospital. He likes to stay up with us until 1 or 2am and I’m always exhausted so I just sleep in with him. Well, this week all that is going to change! I’m going to wake him up every morning around 8am for a few days and see what time he starts to get sleepy at night. I want his bedtime to be a few hours before Jeremy and I go to bed. I crave some alone time…it seems like from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to bed all I have done in between is devote my full attention to Oliver. I know that’s what you are supposed to do as a mother, but I just need that little time to myself every day to get my mind together and just relax. I love my baby boy to pieces but a momma needs a break every now and again. I’m hoping this change will help him as well. Having a designated nap time and bed time might help him feel rested, therefore making him a happier baby. Let’s hope so anyway!

    Good for you!

    Honestly, once they get that all figured out, it’s so much better. We were able to adjust Parker’s bedtime from like 11 pm to 8 pm and all was so much better
