You may be wondering why I would be sharing a story about sleep after a baby. Bubbles just turned four a couple of weeks ago, so she’s clearly not a baby anymore. But I am just now finally finding ways to get back to a regular sleep schedule.
I’ve shared a number of times over the years that Bubbles was a night owl. For quite awhile if I could get her down to sleep before 2 a.m., it was a good night. Her pediatrician wasn’t worried as she was getting solid sleep, sleeping the amount of hours she should, etc. – she was just doing them really late at night. She said she’d eventually grow out of it.
And she did – like three months ago. She’s still a night owl, but her schedule no longer involves her falling asleep and waking up on the same calendar day. But now there’s another problem: my sleep schedule.
