About putting rice cereal in a babies bottle to get them to sleep through the night…my thoughts on sleeping through the night

Never mind that sleep isn’t something to get used to at this point in your mommy career, I have slept maybe 7 nights in the last 21 days. Last night and the night before my 4 year old was crying in pain from his broken arm (that he got from jumping on the couch) because he won’t take the pain med. The week before my 6 yr old has croup so I was up all night with him for 4 days, right before that my baby (2) got a cold- 1 night there, and a few days before that her brother helped her Over the side of the couch and she dislocated her elbow 2 nights there. This part where babies are sweet and snuggly and cute and wake up to eat and go back to sleep is all preparation for life with little kids and then I hear with teenagers (who don’t sleep). So while the hardest transition in life is having one baby ( more get easier) and losing some of our habits, it’s also the time you will look back on most fondly. You have many sleepless nights in your future, get a good coffee pot
