11-06-19 Twins: Restorative Sleep

Tuesday 11th June 2019

Its rare when it happens but when it does we all receive restorative sleep. Last night Elektra slept in Keanu’s bassinet, Keanu in my bed and the usual Kingsley-Erroll combo – no change there. With Elektra away from me (that is, my boobs) she woke only twice throughout the night for feeds. Her usual practice is to feed nonstop, hang from boob to boob, cry if I put her down, and give me hip ache.

By getting her out of my bed and into her own cosy bassinet she did the unthinkable: actually sleep for long stretches. And I did too.
