When my kiddo started sleeping through the night, I stopped sleeping. After 6 months of losing sleep due to the usual — night feeds, diaper changes, comfort cuddles — we decided to do some version of sleep training. It was successful, although tortuous for me (I’m not a cry-it-out kinda gal) and finally we were able to see 5 – 7 hour stretches of sleep for everyone in the house. Then… I developed Postpartum Insomnia. I’d sleep maybe 3 hours a night (this went on for months), even when I had the opportunity to sleep.
