Another Sleepless NIght

I wish there was a way to turn off mommy ears. It is simply not fair that they can pick up the slightest noise from another room and then cause one to stay awake for 2 hours until sleep can be found again. I think I am going to have to invest in ear plugs. Do you know how hard it is to fall back asleep when babies are playing in their crib (happily mind you) and Daddy is snoring right beside me? It is a wonder more husbands are not injured in their sleep by tired mothers. How can they sleep through everything? My favorite is when they wake up well rested and say, "WOW! I slept great last night. The kids must not have made a PEEP!!" Yeah, right....

I feel your pain and go through the baby nocturnal playtime and the husband snoring, too. I recently discovered that leaving a fan on low nicely muffles all of it. I hear the babies if the cry or scream, but it muffles out the nocturnal chatter and softens the chain-saw snores of the hubby. You may need to experiment with a few fans--I like one with a deep, low pitch--my large Holmes oscilating fan produces this pitch. The smaller fans are too high-pitched and tinny for me and the box fans are too loud. Good luck!!
