Sleepless Nights After Baby

by Leslie Caron
(United States)

I was very lucky after I had my first child and I did suffer from sleepless nights, but I was able to eventually get into a schedule and get some sleep.

My situation was a little different than most because my daughter was 5 weeks early and had to remain in the hospital after I was discharged. So on top of regular hormones and the excitement of having a new baby keeping me awake I was making many trips to and from the hospital to feed my baby. I pumped and provided her breast milk for as long as I could keep it up. Once I was able to bring her home I thought I would be more comfortable and could relax and sleep.

As a first time Mom with a preemie who struggled with breathing in the hospital I still couldn’t sleep. I was up for endless hours checking on her and watching her to make sure that she was ok. After several visits with the doctor and talks with a few nurses I started to feel comfortable enough that I was doing a good enough job and that she would be ok. So once I relaxed and wasn’t so stressed I was able to finally get some rest.

"I just want to say in my capacity as pediatrician, teacher of pediatrics, and medical journalist, how very impressed I am by your website. I think your site is very thoughtful, not at all doctrinaire, and will be very valuable to mothers (and I think fathers, too in a second-hand sort of way) suffering from a variety of postpartum problems, of which the most common and perhaps the most serious is PPD. Anyway, thank you for your site, which I will certainly pass on to mothers in my practice."
