Sleep when the baby sleeps; seriously just
f*cking do it
This is one of those pieces of advice that EVERY new mom gets and that EVERY new mom scoffs at.
“How am I supposed to sleep when the baby sleeps?! I have cleaning to do and laundry to drown in! AHHHHHH!”
I didn’t listen for the first few of my babies either ladies…And then one day after baby #4 I was so exhausted, so needed to heal my body and mind, that I said F*ck it and took a nap with my baby each day for a week. Guess what? My house didn’t explode, my husband thanked me for not being an a crazy-sleep-deprived-wacko, and no one judged me that I had dirty dishes in the sink.
