The Science of Sleep
Being a new parent is like walking into a chemical factory on the first day and being required to make a new batch of super formula to cure cancer.
Ok, maybe not quite so stressfull....but close. Katie and I have been very lucky in that up until recently, Caroline has been able to fall asleep about the time we go to bed and sleep through the night with maybe 1 or 2 wake-ups through the night. Sometimes we were even lucky enough to sleep a full night. But this past week, its been nothing but sonstant crying (from everyone), needyness, and rockying from about 10 till 2 or 3. It hasn't been easy, but we made it through one week of this. Hopefully we can get her back on schedule and mae sure she's gettng enough sleep during the day so that she's not so tired at night that she can't go to sleep.
