Question, Mamas; How much sleep are you getting each night? My guess is it’s not nearly enough. There just always seems to be something keeping us awake at night, and I’m not talking about that extra coffee we had late afternoon, am I right?
One week your kids has a cold and can’t breathe through their noses. Next there’s teething, nightmares, or a cry for a midnight bottle. Their blanket isn’t on right, the room is too dark, or they think 4am is a great time for a party. It’s always something!
I’ve had many nights where I watch the clock change from 1, to 2, to 3, begging for it all to be silent. We do it because we love our kids. We sacrifice our own sleep because we know they’re little and they need us. It’s not easy, but it doesn’t last forever.
That being said, finding ways to lessen those nighttime wake ups is always a good idea. My kids all take water bottles to bed for coughing fits and thirst. They also have night lights in their room to chase away the creatures their imaginations tell them are there and when they really need it, we join them for a snuggle in the dark until they feel safe and sleepy.
Another way we avoid wake ups is by using Pampers Baby Dry diapers on our toddler. Pampers Baby Dry was made for us parents who need a good night sleep! They’re super thin and soft, but very absorbent! These diapers include an embossed layer which actually pulls the wetness away from your baby’s skin. It also contains special Extra Absorb Channels, which focus on those problem areas that tend to spring. Pampers Baby Dry diapers allow your child to move freely and offers them up to 12 hours of overnight protection.
The promise is in the name, folks: Baby Dry. A baby that’s comfortable at night is way more likely to sleep through, which means you’re setting yourself up for success.
I don’t need any more reasons not to sleep. Do you?
I’ve been using Pampers because I only partner with brands I truly love, prior to being contacted. The opinions on this blog are my own.
