Save the Mombies

New Mombies are initiated into society on a daily basis. This exhausted segment of the female population can usually be identified by dark circles under her eyes, a staggering walk, and a cup of coffee in her hand. Women turn into Mombies after giving birth and only one thing can stop them: sleep. Yet, scary statistics reveal that mothers of children under 18-months-old are barely clocking in five hours a night.

My son is nine months old and I’m getting about four hours of sleep a night. He just wants to be held to sleep and then cries when I lay him down. So, I’m a Mombie.

I could try sleep training, but as working mom who only sees her baby at night, I feel awful watching him cry. If he wants mommy love, he will get it!

We were doing much better than the every two hour wake up,  but I suspect teething might be a cause for his wake-ups.

For now, I’ll just take it one day at a time and enjoy my 12 a.m., 2 a.m., 4 a.m. etc. cuddles!

Here’s to all the Mombies out there. I raise my coffee cup to you!
