Ok. We’re getting the hang of this. Well, Lewis was already good at sleeping. But I think I’m figuring it out now too!
The first few days were almost entirely sleepless for me, despite plenty of opportunities for sleep. I was just too anxious. It felt like if I wasn’t actively being a mom, I wasn’t doing it right. Like if I wasn’t awake, I’d miss something and Lewis would starve.
That was obviously insane. I knew that. But emotions are funny things.
I feel a lot better now. I still get anxious, but I’m able to turn it off enough that I can get some sleep. I managed about 5 hours last night. Not too shabby!
