A good nights sleep

Well we have had a few good days! Three nights of keeping her in her nursery instead of our room. The monitor is in the corner so it doesn't pick up every squeak but it captures her awake cry perfectly. It allows all of us to sleep so much better!

I understand the saying "when mom isn't happy no one is happy" so much better and my new motto with motherhood is if it makes mom a little more sane or her life a little easier than DO IT.  

I feed my baby breast milk from a bottle 

My newborn sleeps in her own room 

I turn the monitor on, but the volume is down so I only wake up to her legit "IM AWAKE!!" Cry 

I give her a binki if she needs it

If she falls asleep in her car seat there's no way in hell I'm taking her out until she wakes up 

I don't wake her up for visitors 

Motherhood is such a selfless lifestyle we so willingly accept, but that doesn't mean we have to ignore little conveniences that help us out a little. 

I am a better mother bottle feeding my baby and not having her sleep in our room. And no, I don't need you to "make me feel better" about it...because I don't feel bad!
