After having babies of my own, I quickly learned that “sleep like a baby” really does not mean what people think it means! Sure, there were times when my babies slept through noise and chaos, but babies, my babies, at least, did not sleep how I want to sleep! I definitely don’t want to sleep like a baby! Now, I do wish I could sleep like my kids do. They have slept through the night consistently since they were 4ish (yeah, sad, I know!) and they continue to be able to sleep through loud sounds, different temperatures, and sometimes, even sicknesses. I’m passionate about sleep, and I’m glad I was able to write this sponsored post written by me on behalf of the Better Sleep Council.
May is Better Sleep Month and I think that is an excellent place to start! May is SO busy for our family. Soccer, school parties, field trips, field days, and more, all piled on top of busy work schedules and those last minute things to do before summer starts. We need good sleep! Everyone in the family needs their sleep. Somehow it is easy for the kids to sleep with all of this going on, but my mind races with all the things I have to accomplish. Do you ever feel that way?
I took a step back a few days ago, just to think about why my kids have become fairly good sleepers. Our middle son has always slept well, but the other two, not so much. It has taken lots of routine, forethought, and practice to improve their sleeping habits. That is what I am trying to do in my own life, because I need good sleep, too! I thought about what is working for them and what I can implement in my own sleeping routine to help me catch some more Z’s every night!
