Your baby can sleep. (That means you can sleep, too.)
Can’t remember what a full eight hours feels like? We’ve been there. Now that we’re on the other (more rested) side, we’re here to tell you there are no lost causes. Some babies have an easier time falling asleep than others, but even those babies we label as “bad sleepers” can sleep.
Prepare yourself for this mind-blowing revelation: they actually want to sleep, too. They’re also sleep-deprived. They’re also running on adrenaline and having a hard time regulating their emotions. It’s hard to feel bad for them when they seem to hold all the cards in the matter, but the good news is they just need to learn to sleep, just like they would learn any other life skill.
