Flavour of the Day with Noora

My God-Given Alarm Clocks

No one really understands what it is like to be sleep-deprived like mamas do! Why does my 2.5 year-old still wake up and why doesn't my almost 1-year-old baby sleep through the night?!

On average, both wake me up 4-5 times a night, it's killing me. But what I find to be worse is that the expectations of mamas do not decrease because she is sleep-deprived. On the contrary, they are exactly the same and on many days increase. You still need to cook, function, socialise, care for and entertain your kids the next day. You also need to attend to your husband and if you have a job, then consider your own sleeping needs thrown out the window

I read that I should start giving my baby water instead of milk and she will eventually stop waking up; tried that, failed miserably. I need a solution and I need it fast, it is really ridiculous how exhausted I am!
